There’s no laughing at Canadian rapper Drake now, especially since a limited edition Raptors OVO lint brush just sold for $55,000 on eBay.
Drake caused a social media frenzy during a Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets playoff series game when he whipped out a lint brush while sitting courtside and starting cleaning his pants.
It was caught on video and of course he was made fun of on social media.
The Raptors since decided to capitalize on the fad, giving away 1,200 custom lint rollers during game 5 of the playoff series. It was created by OVO (Drake’s record label Octobers Very Own), Bounce and the Raptors.
So this is a real thing in Toronto. pic.twitter.com/pYsyTKP5UV— Jim ICE (@Jim_ICE) April 30, 2014
Fans went crazy over the lint roller.
Since that game, a limited edition of the roller went for $55,000 on eBay.

There are other lint rollers available on eBay but be prepared to dish out quite a bit for the item.
When the Raptors signed Drake as the team’s ambassador, they probably didn’t think he would generate thousands of dollars for the club by a collection of lint rollers.
