Maybe you have seen those images flying around the web recently on Facebook and Twitter etc with the block term “Straight Outta” and then you can type in the term you wish…

straight-outta

Well, that viral meme is the works of Apple Inc. / Beats By Dre / Universal Pictures and was launched on the domain name StraightOuttaSomewhere.com that was registered only 28 days ago on July 23, 2015 at corporate domain name registrar CSC Corporate Domains. At the time and until yesterday, it wasn’t fully clear who owned the domain name, even though the website was Beats By Dre branded.

Whois information for the domain name StraightOuttaSomewhere.com was created using generic whois data, only showing CSC Corporate Domains and even name servers were using CSC.

As of August 18, 2015, name servers have switched to Apple.com.

The website is also featuring the first album in 16 years by Dr. Dre and many other musical artists are features with Straight Outta images by each. The site features limited edition Straight Outta Compton wireless headphones linking to BeatsByDre.com site, a link to iTunes for the new album for Dr. Dre and a few other things. The website in general is Beats themed and provides a link to the movie site directly on the top of the site, right by the meme generator.

“Straight Outta Somewhere” meme was the brainchild of Beats By Dre, in partnership with Universal Pictures” according to HollywoodReporter.com Beats By Dre is owned by Apple Inc.

The Straight Outta Compton movie has been a big hit, which is produced by Dr. Dre himself, Ice Cube and others, which is leading the box office currently. The movie launched August 14, 2015.

The movie is using the EMD StraightOuttaCompton.com, which is owned by Universal Studios but they haven’t always owned it. Frank Schilling’s Name Administration Inc. was the owner of the domain name up to about July 11, 2014 when it sold for $5,500 to Universal. The domain has been registered since 2007.
