Are you sick and tired of hearing about Katy Perry’s Left Shark? Because we aren't!
It’s been almost three months since the uncoordinated fish danced his way into America’s hearts, but for some reason, the country still refuses to let him fade away. People have created costumes, slogan apparel, and home goods based of his image. And some unfortunate soul even went as far as getting a Left Shark tattoo on his body—thus immortalizing the character.
But for a second, we thought we’d have to say goodbye to the Super Bowl Halftime Show breakout star, because Perry was trying to get it trademarked after she revealed her own line of Left Shark onesie. But thankfully, her attempts failed, according to Pigeons and Planes.
The U.S. Trademark Office denied Perry’s claim because the design “identifies only a particular character; it does not function as a service mark to identify and distinguish applicant’s services from those of others and to indicate the source of applicant’s services.”
Shitty news for Perry. But excellent news for us. Long live Left Shark!
