AKRON, Ohio – January 20 is “National Good Day Day,” the day rapper Ice Cube was supposedly describing in his hit song “It Was a Good Day.”
That (partially) explains why the Goodyear Blimp will fly over South Central Los Angeles on Monday with a message for the former member of N.W.A.
But it won’t be the phrase made famous by the song.
Instead, it’ll say, “It’s a Good Day.” And for LA-based non-profit A Place Called Home, which works to protect at-risk kids, it will be too.
This was all put in motion two years ago when comedian Donovan Strain divined the day Ice Cube described by using context clues, like the Lakers beating the Sonics and there being no smog.
In celebration of the unofficial “Good Day Day,” a group of folks turned to fundraising platform Crowdtilt to pressure Goodyear into playing along by offering $25,000 to charity.
The fundraiser hasn’t yet reached its goal but it got Ice Cube’s attention and he pledged to make sure the Good Day Blimp folks get there.
