An Open Letter to JayJays

by Bartlett / 19.02.2014

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and that you flatter to deceive. Well whoever ‘they’ are must’ve been talking about the clothing company that is JayJays, who’ve flattered us with deception by copying our original WTF T-shirt, as worn by SA gaming champion Robert Botha (below). Below the belt.

champ

An article recently appeared on Moneyweb.co.za, stating (amongst other things) that: “This is all rather ironical, because Laugh it Off specialises in adopting and adapting other companies’ trademarks in order to pass social comment.”

To answer Moneyweb’s question – “Is this a case of the pot calling the kettle black?” Sure, we smoke pot. Lots of it. Our designer who came up with WTF said she was totally baked at the time. Which was August 2009, according to the date on the original design file. Who needs a good memory when you have Adobe Auto Save? But just because we smoke pot doesn’t mean we’re not original or that we’d call a company of Raymond Ackermans ‘black’. That’d be racist. We’d rather call them gay. And we don’t mean that in the awesome, homosexual sense, but rather in the lame, weak and creatively bankrupt way.

GAY-GAYS

What we are also saying is that Laugh it Off needs you. You, you soldier for freedom of expression who fought with us in spirit all the way to the Constitutional Court. You, you once proud owner of a Laugh it Off T-shirt who eventually gave it to your gardener. You, person of awesomeness reading mahala.co.za.

We need you to send a mail to: shaunh@jayjays.co.za and let him know just how awesome his company is for the great lengths that they go to trawl the internet for original content and then plagiarize and reproduce it in the Far East at prices so cheap they can afford to undercut the original underdog. Talk about screwing the pooch, the panda, and the SATirist.

Go a step further if you feel to and let them know your thoughts on their Facebook wall.

Maybe y’all can make enough noise that their marketing team will sit up and pay attention and realize that this kind of business practice is uncool and that it could affect their sales?

Maybe their lawyers will pick a fight with us, or maybe, just maybe, their HR department will commission one local artist to produce some original T design work that they can call their own.

Wouldn’t that be a result? One more graphic designer gets paid, one more chocolate starfish gets thrown back into the sea of discontent. That’s all we can hope for.

For our part in this dodgy episode, all we can do is try and be the best chocolate starfish we can be: stay fresh and stay close to the high water mark.

Undergrad English Lit tuts all over again – intellectually and morally superior contrarians bitching about everything other than the point and cussing people actually trying to achieve something. And yes, I said “bitching”; enjoy calling me a misogynistic jock / uneducated neanderthal… Good luck to the little guy. Blatant thievery of your intellectual property (which is not the same as a copyright, Mike) is swak, outsourcing to sweatshops in Asia and bullying you out of the market is even worse. Hope you can afford someone decent to do your lawyering.

    Its interesting who Laugh it Off thinks its “comrades-in-arms” are. Clearly, neither gays nor people who don’t have gardeners.

    I once counted myself a supporter, and over the years leant my help in both time and donations to your “struggle”. How disappointing to realise that all the while I was supporting a bunch of privileged homophobic idiots.

    Good luck in your call to arms, but you’ve certainly lost the support of this Gay.

    That would be pretty funny wouldn’t it? AND ORIGINAL! No?

    Why not give it a try and see how well it’ll fly with the South African majority? After all, if you can insult an already marginalized minority, I’m certain it would cause a riot.

    Didn’t think the ‘panda WTF?’ thing was clever in the first place. What’s it getting at? If anything, it was a milder version of the flagrant homophobia of ‘GayGays’. Not cool or clever in any way. And as for Justin’s version of the word ‘gay’ as meaning ‘lame’, ‘weak’ and ‘creatively bankrupt’… Well, let’s just say I’m stunned at this glib and derisive cluelessness — especially given the context of widespread violent gay rights abuse in the world right now. No! Really not okay.

  18. Jeff says:

    The use of the term gay, in the sense that they have used, is perfectly acceptable, however in this case, of attempting to garner support… foolish. let me explain.

    Colloquial English and even slang, allows for this, and all the people up in arms about it should be ashamed of themselves. Seriously. If you don’t like it, then don’t use any other Colloquial terms either. Its all acceptable or nothing is. To sit here as a comment warrior chirping about the homosexual slurs, is seriously misguided. Most of you doing the complaining are straight anyway. Who or what are you trying to compensate for? Your action to this, is just like Justin’s attempt at humor… completely misguided.

    As a homosexual, being called gay is like being told the sky is blue. its being used in the sense is not offensive, just foolish, as if you were proud to be gay, the association of meaning should be water of a ducks back, and if you have ever had the *pleasure of coming out , you should know, that fighting over an alternative meaning of a word, something like this, is not what we have worked for so long to emancipate the stigma of homosexuality.

    Justin’s point here about JayJays stealing work. It is the same thing that Beach Party had with a clothing retailer stealing their instagram photo and printing it on shirts, and is the same shit heuwils had with Justin Bieber and Wil.I.Am. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9IdtChadhR4

    Help the artists… and don’t victimise a person for the misguided use of a word that has more than one meaning.

  20. Shaun says:

    Hi there,

    As with every situation it only makes sense if two sides are reviewed to make a decision. The print in question is not original, neither by us NOR by” laughs it off “, I never denied that. It is quite clear that by going to Moneyweb he expected a more favourable response, which clearly on the facts he did not get. For clarity and maybe a little too much smoking on his behalf, the original has been around since 2008, so clearly not a fresh idea even then (this is fact and can be proven). As a rule we do not steal peoples design for any garment, what would the point be of that, customers aren’t stupid, they would ask why we are copying someone else, no brand would or will have longevity is this is the principle on which they work, he has tried to make this the case by this example but he is ill informed. We subscribe to the legal parameters of design, which for those who don’t know have strict guide lines on what classifies copying. I fully admitted that in this case we did get it off the internet as we found it funny, we are a small team and we only do very limited items from our office here ( design that is ). This print is and has is and has been around as I said since 2008 (note a year before they printed it), again not original design from Laugh it off and seen everywhere across the world as a parody; we saw no harm in using it. I searched responsibly to see if it was registered and found that it hadn’t or could not be as the original logo is not owned or designed by anyone other than WWF. I can also clearly state that I had no idea that it had been done here locally , if you google WTF panda you will see that other than the current activity Laugh it off doesn’t come up as a reference but many companies in America do .
    We are not the big ogre in this case and as much as they want to make a stink and have rude mails sent to my inbox, I will not admit liability. Had we been wrong I would have done the right thing. Again this is not likely to happen as we stick to design rules and have no intention of hurting someone or trying to make a quick buck out of someone’s else’s time and effort , least of all hurt someone who is trying to make a business for themselves in this country . Keeping in context, this is one tee shirt, had we done something in error we would admit financial damages without question.
    I would also like to add that Jay jays has brought nearly 30 % of our production back to SA which has been our own initiative to support local production , of course it also makes business sense to do so. We are also helping to employ two graphic designers to do SA original design instead of using solely garments from our Australian principle.
    I have a clear conscience, had his case been better Moneyweb would have slaughtered us, show me a journalist that doesn’t want to discredit “moneymaking business “, she couldn’t do this for very fair reasons and facts.
    Personally gay gays is derogatory , he obviously couldn’t come up with more original material ,he obviously knows that I am gay and wanted to be offensive and rile me up. If the end decision is not to support us on what he has said and what I have replied then there isn’t much more I can do, he made it quite clear that his angle was to trial me and Jays by clever writing, misrepresentation and a one sided view in order to get some sort of settlement (this is subtly written in his prose and also mentioned by him when I called him to discuss) .I can’t change that but won’t be bullied by him either.
    Thanks you for reading my reply, I am very happy to field any other opinions.
    Shaun

    Has the richness of the English language become so narrow in relation to interpretation of meaning of the word ‘gay’ that one has no right to use it in a ‘non-sexual orientation’, without being accused of bigotry, discrimination or slander. Sure ‘flay gays’ is arguably homophobic and ‘yeah gays’ homophile but have we lost all sense of reason when ‘we had a gay day at the amusement park’ is interpreted as containing a surreptitious reference.

  27. comrade says:

    What gets me about this is that Justin is not actually stupid. I don’t doubt that he is *perfectly* aware that the entire reason for the development of the insulting form of “gay” is homophobia. It is not *coincidental*. ‘Gay’ is used as a sneering insult – only, and I mean *only*, by the profoundly ignorant or very young – as a reflection of a homophobic society. Justin knows this. But he is clearly very angry – that much is evident from his letter. So in his attack on JayJays, he opted for what he presumably thinks is the worst insult of all – to be called gay. But he knew that right-thinking people would find this puerile and offensive, so he tried to cover his back by creating an entirely artificial distinction between the “awesome homosexual” use of gay, and *his* use as an insult. Does Justin honestly not see that the semantic pairing of “gay” with “rubbish” sends out a continual message that gays are inferior? Of course he does. He sees it perfectly well. This is breathtakingly cynical.

Justin is homophobic towards gay people. Remember to always look at issues from another perspective. Gay people face a lot of issues. Look at lesbian corrective rape in this country. In a way Justin is actually endorsing hatred against gay people. His use of the Word Gay Gays is obviously used in a negative way. Young people look at these sort of comments and don’t want to come out as gay because they don’t want to be called gay gays or you shopped at gay gays.

The “Black Labour – White Guilt” & “Corruption” tees were/are at least clever, but I’m still not sure what makes two pandas rutting funny or clever – WTF? indeed. Gay Gays is just scraping the bottom of the barrel – not funny, not clever, not acceptable. I supported your fight against the big boys when you actually had something worthwhile to say.

Stop being so sensitive. Justin was wrong to make this so public. But I’m pretty sure Justins definition of gay will soon be added to the dictionary as one of the meanings of the word. It’s just like the word bitch. I don’t get insulted by it because I don’t define myself as gay. Use the word more often I say. I joke about it with my friends and im sure many of you do too. Ignoring it makes it worse. Say it enough and you can change the meaning and maybe we won’t have to be gay anymore. We can just be people.

    I think what we can decipher from this is that perhaps it was an opportunity for Laugh It Off to create an up storm on Mahala in order to prove their strength against such a dominant brand such as JayJays who own majority of closest space amongst South African teens. This is similar to their case against SAB, their first tactic is to cause a ruckus amongst ‘you guys’, which by reading the previous comments, has been successful. The second would be playing the role of a ‘black widow’, small but deadly, using its resources to create as much buzz around the topic as possible, creating free brand exposure even if in a negative light. We know that JayJays has been sourcing images from the net, I must force the fact that Cape Town is a design capital, therefore its only logical that JayJays should employ one of many struggling designers to come up with original content, even if they source images, atleast change it by 25%. By doing so they are creating jobs as well as living up to the international expectations & standards of our city. I am certain that Mr.Nurse understands the implications of using a homophobic word and perhaps these negative comments are like music to his ears, its almost as if you are telling a villain his own plot. Perhaps some further research into this topic from previous examples is what we need.

We have risen up to get our hands dirty quite a few times – once again look at the reality as well as history to which you are once again oblivious to. We do not need anybodies pity. We don’t want to be pitied. I would suggest that you rather educate yourself with the world of gay people, the history etc. before writing such utter rubbish as you just did.

    Wow! Lost all credibility when you decided to throw some good old homophobia in there. Even if that’s not what you meant by it, your use of words was astonishingly bad. If you’re a designer you could have perhaps put a little more thought into it and come up with something witty, instead of offensive.
