Brendan Richmond created a viral sensation with his hoser comedy song “Out For a Rip” in 2013, but he was surprised to recently find his popular catchphrase gracing the side of a Coca-Cola bottle.
“I just pulled it out of the cooler — and it was literally in my hand before I saw what was on it,” said Richmond, whose rapper persona is B. Rich.
So he’s now released a followup song, titled “Out for a Sip,” on YouTube taking the beverage corporation to task for using “Out For a Rip” without his permission. The musical threat of litigation had already gathered more than 45,000 views in a week.
A representative for Coke said the company has “reached out” to discuss the matter.
