Raptors give away Drake-inspired lint rollers after Wednesday’s game (pics)


Following Wednesday night’s 115-113 win over the Brooklyn Nets, the Toronto Raptors gave away lint rollers to 1,200 very lucky and soon-to-be nattily and schmutz-free attired fans.

Proctor & Gamble’s Bounce company were the suppliers of the lint rollers, which boasted the tagline, “Bounce, helping keep Raptors and OVO fans lint-free.”

Of course, the promotion was inspired by hip hop artist Drake pulling out a lint roller and cleaning up his slacks while seated courtside during Game 2 of the team’s series against the Nets. OVO stands for “October’s Very Own,” Drake’s record label.

Here’s Drake putting his lint roller to work last week.

Some photos of the Drake-inspired lint roller that was handed out to fans after the game in the 416 Zone, in the square and by way of social media:

What an odd thing. But hey, it is Canada, after all. They are a very neat and tidy people.
