LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 2, 2022 / UMAX Group Corp. (OTC PINK:UMAX), a Nevada corporation, has announced that its subsidiary, Funny Media Group ("FMG"), was successful in the first phase of trademarking, "Me Gusta Latina"-the phrase coming from the hit song "Me Gusta Latina" produced by FMG.
"The trademark has been published for opposition by the USPTO, which in effect, is them clearing the mark," said UMAX President and CEO Rondell Fletcher. "If there are no objections, then we are issued the trademark."
Me Gusta Latina features Tryf da Comedian and a world-famous rapper. The music video, produced by FMG, has nearly 4.5 million views on YouTube.
"This video and this phrase really resonated and we look forward to doing a line of apparel and accessories featuring this phrase," Mr. Fletcher said.
After the acquisition of Funny Media Group in May 2021, UMAX has now fully transitioned into comedy development as the vehicle to achieve a cash-flow positive operation and to provide the best return on shareholder's investment.
Fletcher also praised Tryf da Comedian for his unique style of music.
"Tryf is the pioneer of a style of music called Symphunny - a fusion of raw comedy storytelling with a soulful beat from a live band complete with backup singers and a string section," Mr. Fletcher said.
The song, "Me Gusta Latina" and the Symphunny album were both submitted for Grammy consideration in the Best Comedy Album category.
Tryf da Comedian's music can now be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Tidal.
Mr. Fletcher has an extensive background in production and media. He has owned his own production studio in Los Angeles for the past 20 years and has produced national shows for CNN, FOX, Food Network and Comedy Central, among others.
The short-term goal for Funny Media Group is to produce content for streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon with the long-term goal of building a large media catalog for acquisition.
UMAX Group Corp. is a Nevada corporation, is a public-quoted Pink Sheet issuer under the ticker symbol "UMAX". UMAX reports as an alternative reporting issuer with OTC Markets Group, Inc. and is current in its mandatory required filings (E.g., "Pink Sheet Current").
