Irish rockers Kodaline have convinced bosses at cereal giant Kellogg's to change a new advert amid fears the soundtrack is too similar to their tune All I Want.

The band took to Twitter.com last week (ends15Jun14) to complain about the commercial's music, claiming it sounds just like a track from their hit debut album In a Perfect World.

A post on the group's account read, "Hey Kelloggs Uk we nearly choked on our cornflakes this morning when we saw your new ad. #writeyourownsong #whataripoff."

Representatives for the company, which makes popular brands such as Cornflakes and Coco Pops, have now responded to Kodaline's complaint, revealing they have now commissioned a new song for the commercial.

A statement from the company reads, "The song used in our current storybook ad is an original created by an artist called Libby Kash.

"However, being mindful of Kodaline's concerns, as a gesture of goodwill, we have decided to change the song. The new song will be in place the next time we run the ad."
