Looks like Drake is truly living up to his motto.
With his hit “The Motto” making the acronym YOLO (you only live once) an annoyingly pervasive phrase for the past year, Drake thinks he is entitled to a pay cheque with his famous tagline appearing on merchandise everywhere.
Spending his Christmas Eve strolling around Macy’s and Walgreens, the rapper took a couple of pictures on his Instagram page to show his dismay with the label appearing on clothing such as hats and T-shirts.
Under the image from Walgreens, which features a stack of tacky caps, Drake wrote, “Walgreens … you gotta either chill or cut the cheque.”
And under the photo from Macy’s, which features a T-shirt featuring Peanuts characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, he added, “Macy’s … same goes for you.”
I can’t even blame Drake for being offended. Seeing Snoopy and Charlie Brown used like that is JUST disrespectful.
But even if Drake is planning to ask for the rights to “YOLO”, the rapper might run into some trouble. According to Gawker, there has been already more than 100 U.S. trademark applications to use the acronym on an array of different products.
But honest to God, if I see another shirt or hat with the tagline YOLO on it, I’m going to have a fit.
