After Chipotle sued Frank Ocean
for backing out of doing an advertisement for them, he responded with a big check 3 days later !
The Mexican-themed restaurant said in a lawsuit
filed on Friday in L.A., that they paid the R&B singer $212,500 to record a cover of the song "Pure Imagination" for one of their advertisements. (They were planning to pay Ocean another $212,500 after he delivered the product.) However, he canceled the deal in August 2013, claiming Chipotle originally told him that he doing a marketing campaign to "promote responsible farming" and not for the Chipotle brand itself. In the lawsuit, Chipotle asked for the money back, plus additional damages—and Ocean delivered... like a boss.
As opposed to a long battle, Ocean, (real name Christopher E. Breaux), sent a $212,500 check he wrote returning the funds, plus a "fvck off" message in the note section.
