Some More Thursday Morning (True) Comedy: “Thank You, Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt”.

May 21, 2009

From the BBC, a story about 21st century marketing practices, the phenomenon of viral communications, the influence of consumer reviews on, wildly popular clothing styles and, of course, this:

An excerpt from the story:

A T-shirt has become one of the most popular items sold by online retailer Amazon in the past few weeks.
Sales of the kitsch Three Wolf Moon T-shirt shot up 2,300% after a spate of ironic reviews went viral.
The first review gave the shirt five stars, saying it “Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women” but “cannot see wolves with arms crossed”.
That prompted hundreds of others to post frivolous reviews, turning the page into an internet phenomenon.
“When I put this T-shirt on for the first time, my wife left me! Thank you, Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt,” wrote one wag, while another said that “the Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt gave me a +10 resistance to energy attacks, +8 Strength… and I have successfully solved 7 crimes in my city”.

    FYI, One of the ladies in our neighborhood has a tee that says, “MY X WAS ONE OF THESE” Under the caption is a large screened photo of a horse’s ass. She had it made up special and is deluged with people that want one like it.
