"First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin" products

These are not any collector's items but I'm posting this anyway.
I spent some days in Berlin, and to my big surprise at a souvenir shop
near the Branderburger Tor I found a whole product line of
T shirts, bags, caps, and mugs, all in many colors,
with the text “First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin”.

I guess the title of the song has not been registered as a trademark,
so probably these products are legal, but certainly those are
unauthorized.

Wow loving these! Would love the bright yellow bags in the first photo to bring to the concerts to carry my "official" merchandise ;-)

Perhaps it's a bit sneaky using the lyric, but they're pretty damn nice! Nicer than some of the tour merchandise! Wonder if they ship abroad... :D

Wish I'd known about this when son Richard was in Berlin a few weeks ago! I suppose they'll do a roaring trade come September ...
