Whatever your thoughts on the hard seltzer explosion, the phenomenon now has its quintessential viral moment courtesy of comedian Trevor Wallace’s YouTube video titled *drinks White Claw once*. (Choice quote: “It’s like a Four Loko that went to private school.”) The video, which has 1.1 million views and counting, led Wallace to sell a t-shirt that read “Ain’t No Laws When You’re Drinkin’ Claws.” But, it turns out, there are laws—specifically, trademark ones.

Wallace tweeted that fans who purchased the shirt were issued refunds; VinePair reports White Claw’s legal team asked Wallace to stop selling them.


“I’m TRULY sorry,” Wallace tweeted.

I have yet to try Hard Seltzer of any kind. Is it another one of those malt beverages like Zima or Smirnoff Ice?  Or is it closer to Perrier or LaCroix?
