Gene Simmons: “If I could, I would trademark the air you breathe”

On a recent interview, Gene Simmons from KISS, said: “If I could, I would trademark the air you breathe.”

Simmons tried to trademark the “devil horns” gesture and the “I love you” sign, that extends both the pinky and pointer fingers, but instead of tucking in one’s thumb, the thumb is extended as well.

Simmons withdrew his trademark application just two weeks after filing it. It was unlikely to succeed in the first place since, hand gestures traditionally can’t be trademarked unless they are part of a logo.

When asked by Metro News about the backlash he faced for the trademark attempt, Simmons responded, “You can’t please everybody. Not everybody likes Jesus, either. Instead of worrying what people think, I just go my merry way and do whatever I want to do. If I could, I would trademark the air you breathe. Every breath. Yes, I would.”

On a recent episode of the Loudwire Podcast, the website asked KISS bandmate Paul Stanley to share his opinions on the trademark attempt. “Gene elicits some very strong reactions from people. And what he does he does for the reasons that only he knows,” Stanley said. “I don’t know why he pulled it, and I don’t know why he started it … I haven’t asked him.”
