International chain restaurant Chipotle sued Frank Ocean for $212,500.00, after the Odd Future affiliate backed out of participating in an ad campaign. According to Chipotle, they paid Ocean a $212,500.00 advance to record a version of "Pure Imagination," which would be used in a future commercial. However, rather than record the song for the commercial, Ocean sent them a legal notice, announcing he would not hold up his end of the bargain. Apparently, when Frank Ocean saw that Chipotle was going to use their logo at the end of the commercial he became disinterested in recording the cover. Ocean's ultimate response to the lawsuit was a $212,500.00 cashiers check, written out to Chipotle, reimbursing them for the advance they had previously paid him. Ocean made sure his frustration with the company was understood by writing, "FUCK OFF," in the check's memo box. He then posted a picture of the check to his Tumblr.
