In the beforehand 1990s, Diet Pepsi ran a series of effective ads that featured Ray Charles and also the slogan, "You acquired the best one, baby, uh-huh."


You are watching: You got the right one baby uh huh

But not everyone liked the ads. Arthur Takeall declared that Pepsi stole the slogan from him, saying he had offered it in his ventriloquism act for years. He would select an attrenergetic woman in the audience and say, "You"ve Got The Right One" and his puppet would then say "Uh-huh." Takeall sued Pepsi for $130 million, however his case was dismissed by the judge. However before, in 1997 the Patent and Tradenote Office ruled in his favor, deciding that he was entitled to the legal rights to the slogan, "You got the appropriate one, baby, uh-huh." But as much as I know, it was a bit of a hollow victory since Pepsi never paid him any money.
