It’s Completely Impossible To Make Fun Of Drake

In another case of Drake just getting it, tonight in Toronto for Game 5 of the Raptors series against the Brooklyn Nets, the team will be giving away complimentary lint rollers at the Air Canada Centre. But these aren’t just any lint rollers; they’re limited edition October’s Very Own x Bounce collab lint rollers. Per Word On The Game:

“Bounce, a Procter & Gamble company, has come on board as the official lint roller supplier of the Raptors.

“They have produced 1,200 limited edition Raptors/OVO rollers that will be distributed after the game to fans in the 416 Zone, in the square and via social media. The tagline: ‘Bounce, helping keep Raptors and OVO fans lint-free.’”

ICYMI, lint-rolling has become a bit of a thing at Raptors games since Drake was caught on camera removing lint from his black dunagrees during Game 2. In the front row. Of a televised game.

Like always, Drake is in on the joke, and capitalizing on it as well. Actually, it’s cool to see him be a sport about these things, managing to turn the Internet’s jabs to his advantage as the Raps’ global ambassador.

Guess he wasn’t playing when he said lint rollers were on deck. Now, it looks like the whole city’s behind him, including the mayor. Which leads me to believe that Drake is the best thing to happen to Toronto since Vince Carter won the 2000 slam dunk contest.
