Two college students were sued by The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company d/b/a A&P -- a 337-store supermarket chain -- for allegedly defaming the company in a music video which they recorded on-premises without the company's consent.

Priding themselves as rappers known as the " Fresh Beets ," the young men appear to be engaged in a musical parody of their work, rather than on a mission to disparage or harm the company's products or reputation.

While the video is certainly childish and crude, we're of the opinion that the company overacted when it filed a lawsuit seeking a million dollars in damages, and terminated the two New Jersey residents from their respective positions as "produce clerks."

"Is it all about the produce, produce?"

See for yourself!
