Post Malone Files Trademark For World Beer Pong League
Post Malone is making moves to turn the good ol' game of beer pong into a world-renowned league.
The 'Beerpongs & Bentleys' rapper has even filed for a trademark on the 'World Pong League', according to reports from TMZ.
It is believed that the intention will be to use it for beer pong tournaments and other competitions, as well as 'exhibitions'.
According to the entertainment news outlet, Post plans to put the copyright into league-affiliated merchandise as well - with a view to branding glassware, plastic cups, game tables, cup racks, balls and every piece of casual sportswear under the sun.
During the coronavirus lockdown, as people were trying to get into running, yoga and banana break making, Post had other ideas and ended up teaming up with fellow rapper Mike Stud to organise The Ballina Cup - a titanic virtual beer pong contest.
Hopefully the 25-year-old's new venture will go down just as well as his rosé wine, which became such a hit with fans that it sold out during pre-sale.
According to TMZ, 50,000 bottles of Maison No. 9 flew off the virtual shelves just in two days - meaning the first round of inventory was completely wiped out.

In fact, Vivino - the sales platform through which the product is sold - reportedly crashed on the first morning of pre-sale because it simply couldn't handle the overwhelming demand.
Malone's wine making dreams came about during a trip to France's Provence region, which is famed for its rosé.
His own creation, Maison No. 9 (House No. 9, for the non-French speakers), is named after the rapper's favourite tarot card, the nine of swords, which represents overcoming challenges.
As a tipple, the tasting notes promise 'aromas of freshly picked fruit, such as ripe pineapple, pear and strawberry' with 'hints of sweet French desserts once uncorked'.
The description adds: "The clean, dry, crisp finish is balanced and round with a texture that is mouthwatering and savoury, perfect for drinking on its own or with a variety of dishes."
It is made up of Grenache (45 percent), Cinsault (25 percent), Syrah (15 percent), and Merlot (15 percent), with reports saying it took 50 blends before the 'Better Now' star and his team were happy.
