famous last words

Remember that super viral Scarecrow Chipotle ad from last year? Well, Frank Ocean, the guy that was originally hired to sing the song (prior to Fiona Apple, refused to finish recording because he claims he was told it was an ad to promote responsible farming, but then at the end it was revealed to be a Chipotle ad.

So, as any corporation would, Chipotle sued for the half the money they paid him in advance since he didn't finish the project. And, because they probably could afford good lawyers, they won. So, Frank Ocean wrote them a check, in a way that would ensure they didn't get the satisfaction of the last word. See the memo line.
