American TV network Fox recently aired a segment on bulletproof backpacks targeted at kids. Not in a way that we in Australia would air this segment, more like a ‘look at how fashion forward and lovely these backpacks are!’ sort of a segment.
That’s all well and good, we know the US is a little cooked, but in the background of the segment they used La Roux’s 2009 hit Bulletproof, which if you knew anything about the song was not actually about being bulletproof. La Roux has come out swinging, speaking to NME and saying that ‘Using Bulletproof, a song I wrote about relationships, for a piece like this is abhorrent. I have never, and would never approve my music to be used in this way.’
Check how it was used below!
