First came ‘Out For A Rip’….
About as Canadian as it gets!!! But here’s the follow up, from the guys responsible for ‘Out For A Rip’…
Here’s the scoop. I was grocery shopping in T’ranna, and by pure coincidence, stumbled upon a bottle of Coke, with “Out For A Rip” printed across the front. As you may or may not know, that happens to be the name of a song i wrote that made a fairly significant impact here in Canada. I also own the trademark for the phrase. (see link)
The bottle is being used as part of a music promotion by Coca Cola which allows folks to scan their bottle with their smartphone to bring up an online music playlist. The “Out for a Rip” playlist, for some reason, does not contain the song “Out for a Rip”.
Soon after making this discovery, i was flooded with reports of these bottles popping up nationwide, and decided it was time to respond to this seemingly unlicensed use of my intellectual friggin’ property. With my lawyer, Rob Kittredge, (RKIP.ca) I decided the best possible course of action would be to detail the whole ordeal in a music video that also serves as my legal demand letter to Coca Cola. I hope this answers some questions for all those who’ve been enquiring. Friggin’ right on.

So yes, they made a follow up song, in response to Coca Cola… it’s called ‘Out For A Sip’…
Funny stuff. If you’re a Canadian, this is perfect english lol
