Last week, Toronto’s Blimp Rock cheekily suggested that the Blue Jays should pay them $700,000 in royalties for use of the Jays’ slogan, “come together” (#ComeTogether), because they’d invented the motto in their 2012 song, “Oh, Baseball”: “And the people, they come together.”
It appears the stunt led to the quartet receiving a deluge of hate mail, and they’re sharing it with us in this video for “In The Doghouse,” from their Sophomore Slump record. It’s a little frightening to think that this many people took their royalty demands seriously.
Why $700,000, you’re wondering? They’re trying to raise that sum so they can put on a music festival inside a blimp, floating over Lake Ontario.
