Kawasaki Loses Iconic Slogan to Canadian Coffee Giant Tim Hortons

Kawasaki's iconic and heavily trademarked tag line "Let the Good Times Roll™" has been scooped up by Canadian coffee and doughnut giant, Tim Hortons, in the chain's latest North American advertising campaign, "Let the Good Times RRRoll".

With only two capitalized "RR"'s separating the slogans, Tim Hortons, who recently celebrated the opening of their 500th US location, continues their broad expansion into America's coffee and snack market. It is unclear whether the addition of the two capitalized "RR"s constitutes a new trademarkable slogan, or if Kawasaki has licensed this to Tim Hortons - and if so why?

"Let the Good Times RRRoll" billboards, promoting the "RRRoll up the rim to win" contest are appearing North America wide.

According to Kawasaki press material, "Kawasaki's tagline, "Let the good times roll™", is recognized worldwide and the brand is aggressively carrying its heritage of leading-edge power, performance and exhilaration into the 21st century."

If you're a Tim Horton's fan, you can find out more about their "RRRoll up the Rim to Win contest online by following this link .

And remember... "Let the Good Times RRRoll"!

"Just DoOO it"

"The HappPPiest Place on Earth"

"Built FFfFord Tough"

WeEEE Bring Good Things to Life"

"SSSSnap Crackle Pop"

"Intel InsidDDDe"

I thought it was Cajun, or French before that... "Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez" ... guess Kawi trademarked it at some point.. I can't remember a time when I didn't associate "Let the Good Times Roll" with Kawasaki.. at least 2 decades? Help me out here... how long have they used that as their tagline?

maybe Kawi needed the extra cash to fund their MotoGP team so we could all watch them lose for another season!

Fish- since I can remember, that slogan has always referrrence Kawasaki!!! Wow.... how times have changed. Today, it seems that instead of companies deriving an original slogan, they just remix an old one(says something about the creativity back then that some would copy-cat today).
