While most people spent Christmas day at home with with friends and family, Drake spent his on Instagram, complaining about merchandise with “YOLO” on it, the acronym he helped drive into the ground with his 2012 song ‘The Motto’.
– “Walgreens….you gotta either chill or cut the cheque”
– “Macy’s…same goes for you.”
It might be worth noting that Drake didn’t make the phrase up. The Strokes launched Operation YOLO to get airplay for their song ‘You Only Live Once’ in 2005, but “the earliest known use is attributed to Adam Mesh from the third season of the NBC reality show The Average Joe. Mesh launched the ‘You Only Live Once’ (YOLO) clothing line on March 20th, 2004.”
So, go fuck yourself Drake. You can’t just repeat what other people say and get paid for it. Unless you’re Seth McFarland.
