Drake Slams Macy’s and Walgreens For Using ‘YOLO’ On Items

December 26, 2012 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Drake is calling out Walgreens’ and Macy’s for selling items with “YOLO” printed on them. Drake posted a picture of items for sale in the two stores with the motto on them (meaning “You Only Live Once”) to Statigram yesterday with the messages:

Walgreens….you gotta either chill or cut the cheque

Macy’s…same goes for you

The phrase was popularized by Drake this year via “The Motto,” though he is far from the first person to ever use it. As it currently stands there are over 100 applications in various forms of progression for trademarks involving the expression. Whether Drake has his own trademark or trademark application for it is unclear.
