Going places: Kodaline

Irish rockers Kodaline have accused breakfast cereal company Kellogg's of ripping off their hit 'All I Want' in a new cereal ad.

The Swords band tweeted, "Hey @KellogsUK we nearly choked on our cornflakes this morning when we saw your new ad.. #writeyourownsong #whataripoff."

They then posted several other tweets backing up their claims including one from Voice of Ireland judge Eoghan McDermott and RTE's Diana Bunici.

Kellogg's, who are best known for their cornflake and Special K cereals, released the animated ad in the UK to show how their cereals are made.

The company commissioned Hush Music to create an original song.  The song features a female vocalist with different lyrics but the melody is similar to Kodaline's song.
