Pantone Song Memes: Chic & Artistic's 'Panto'N'Roll' Series Will Brighten Your Day (PHOTOS)

Well played, Pantone. The self-described "authority on color" proved it can make a joke with a new series of memes based off pop culture's favorite colors.

Chic & Artistic's series "Panto'N'Roll" combines a simple color swatch with the musical phrase that made it famous. The Paris-based creative studio shows the simple power of graphic design when it's done well. Check them out and let us know if you too cannot say "purple" without thinking "rain."
