Heh... I spent like 30 seconds on "Three feet" before I realized it wasn't looking for a person or animal that had 3 feet instead of 2 or 4.

I think _____-Ay-Ee-Oooo is an unfair clue since we can't hear the tune. I thought it referred to Old MacDonald had a farm.

Missed the Kanye and Drake questions, but as I have no more than a vague awareness that there are people with these names and they are musicians, that isn't too surprising. Also missed the basketballer but it has virtually no presence in the UK, so again, not a big surprise.

Stumped by the seventh clue though.

i think the seventh clue is fine, but kanye and drake are just as inconsequential to me too

The seventh clue is one of those, when you see the answer you wonder how the heck you didn't get it, but it threw me totally. Twice.

As did Kanye. I got Drake purely by guessing “Y” words

I was thinking this too, but apparently he changed his legal name to "Ye". So I guess it doesn't count as a nickname?

Yugo is a type of car, not a brand. It was manufactured by Zastava Motors.

Maybe Yakult is also an acceptable answer for the dairy product?

Actually, Yugo was the car's brand name. You are correct in that Zastava Motors was the manufacturer, but Yugos were never marketed under that name, at least not in the US. There were various models (types as you said) of Yugos. The model sold here in the US was known as the GV. And they really were a horrible car. It was common to see them driving around with the exhaust system dragging on the ground.
