(PCM) Initially, singer Frank Ocean and Chipotle were supposed to be working together and Ocean was signed on to record a remix of the song “Pure Imagination” for a new ad in support of the restaurant chains new video game app.
Chipotle shelled out $212, 500 dollars in advance for Ocean’s participation, however Ocean decided to pull out of the project due to the company wanting to use its’ own logo at the end of the video advertisement. Wow, would you imagine that! A company wanting to use its’ own logo in its’ own advertisement! Ocean apparently had other idea, although we could not image what they would have been.
After Ocean pulled out of the project, Chipotle took it upon themselves to sue Ocean for the return of the over $212k advance. Not wanting to get caught up in all the legal drama, Ocean recently sent a check out to Chipotle for the exact amount of the advance which was $212,500 dollars and wrote “F**k Off” in the memo!
Ouch! Someone definitely didn’t want to part with their money, but in our opinion it is only fair. Can’t bail out a project and then still expect to be paid. Let’s hope he doesn’t bail out of the sequel to “Channel Orange”.
