Johnny Cupcakes vs. A Syracuse Sorority Ripoff
As mentioned in my previous post about the Johnny Cupcakes lecture at Syracuse, there is no space for fakes! Johnny went in for a while in the lecture about being ripped off and the legal battles and ended by bringing up that a certain sorority on our very own campus was guilty of ripping his design off this year. I see this tee shirt around campus all the time and even the font is ripped off to down to a tee.
Johnny assembled an angry mob of fans to march over to the violating sorority house and give en the business.
(Side contest, comment and guess if Meezy is a)singing b)burping c)yelling an ancient battle cry or d) yawning in the picture above. A chance to win exclusive breath enhancing prizes from SwaggerDap is at hand.)
Finally one of the girls who happened to be wearing the ripoff shirt showed her face, being welcomed to a bunch of “boo’s” from the crowd. As you can see, Johnny was quietly making his point too.
The angry mob kinda turned into a laughing mob, but we still made our presence felt.
Everyone wanted him to light it on fire and cause a scene, but when one of your company credos is “Make cupcakes not war” it’s probably a better PR move to be the bigger person here. He did make them agree to only wear the shirts as pajamas though so that they are never to be seen in public again. And since he has a whole new fan base in Syracuse now I’m pretty sure he will find out if they do. I know I’ll twitpic it to him.
Thanks once again to Johnny Cupcakes for giving us a great and eventful evening at Syracuse. Hope you come back!
