Baby Inside: Reveal Your Inner Youth by Evian

Aren’t these T-Shirts just too cute? They’re actually part of a marketing campaign from the French brand of mineral water, Evian. The Live Young campaign has actually been going on throughout 2010, but only recently did I catch a glimpse of the T-Shirts. And apparently, the commercials also went viral on YouTube with over 32 million views for the international version. Oddly enough, there is a US version of the commercial but I am yet to see it play here in the states.

Brilliant campaign? I think so. I think that anything that involves babies strikes a nerve, because, well, we’ve all been there done that.

The Baby Inside T-Shirts are available now from the Evian Shop for 30 Euro (~$40 US).

Speaking of babies, have any of you seen the Babies movie? If cuteness is your thing then this movie is a must watch. I didn’t know that a 79 minute documentary featuring the first year of four different babies from across the globe would be so entertaining. If you haven’t seen it, I’d suggest you check it out. However, if you’re on the fence when it comes to having babies of your own, then I’d suggest you stay away from this movie because by the end you’ll want nothing more than to have one.

Co-Tee TV Episode 28: Aaitski, Finroo and Robot Strollers!

In this episode I review Roboboy from Aaitski and wrap up my summer long series on ongoing T-Shirt contest sites by reviewing Stroller by John Fitzpatrick from Finroo!

Follow Co-Tee TV on Facebook for fun contests and exclusive content!

This week I continue my summer long series on Ongoing T-Shirt Contest Sites. Every week, I will be reviewing a different tee from one of many different online contest sites. I’ll be discussing how each of these sites differ, how the submission and selection process work and what your rights are as a designer. Check out past reviews on: ShirtFight, A Better Tomorrow, Full Metal T-Shirt, tFuse, Design By Humans, Teextile and Tilteed.

You can also watch this episode on Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, blip.tv and download and sync all episodes to your iPod or iPhone by subscribing for free to Co-Tee TV in the iTunes Store.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Stroller by John Fitzpatrick and available at Finroo. Pros: The shirt is OMG soft. It seriously is one of the softest shirts I’ve ever worn. Finroo uses Direct-To-Garment printing but this is by far the softest print I’ve felt, screenprinted or DTG. The shirts are printed on organic bamboo. The print seems to be built right into the fabric, it’s the seamless. From touch alone you cannot tell where the print starts and where it ends. It’s tagless for itchfree comfort and features a screenprinted necktag instead. Inside of the lower hem there is a print that shows the number of the shirt (out of 100). Finroo claims their shirts to be all natural and hypoallergenic but i have no way to test this. Cons: It’s a bit pricey but other than that there’s not much that I can complain about. Some of you might find the shirts to be too thin. If you enjoy staying cool then you’ll appreciate the thinness. No custom packaging, just a FedEx mailer. Price: $34.99

Roboboy by Aaitski. Pros: If you enjoy wearing character based shirts then you must check out Aaitski. They feature some of the most fun characters you’ll find on the Internet! This shirt features a custom hangtag. Cons: The sleeves were a bit longer than I typically like and the arm holes were a bit wider than I am accustomed to but the rest of the shirt fit fine. Aaitski URL printed on back of shirt. Price: €25 ($36 US).

Hey Jude

Now this YouTube video of a Korean kid singing Hey Jude is too damn cute. I mean, the kid totally rapes the song, but still, it’s cute. And with 4,724,282 (and growing) views, I think the rest of the wired world, for the most part, agrees with me. 

Hey jude, dont make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey jude, dont be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey jude, refrain,
Dont carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that its a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hey jude, dont let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey jude, begin,
Youre waiting for someone to perform with.
And dont you know that its just you, hey jude, youll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Hey jude, dont make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then youll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.

Na na na na na ,na na na, hey jude…
