Co-Tee TV Episode 71: Fur Face Boy, I Hate Clowns and T-Shirt Forums

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear Little Fur Face Boy and review the Experimental Jetset Parody Tee by I Hate Clowns, a brand that was established in 1996 and passionately hates all things clown related. Like, they seriously hate clowns.

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Coty’s Thoughts:

I Hate Clowns Experimental Jetset Parody by I Hate Clowns. Pros: Perfect T-Shirt for those of you who loathe clowns and everything clown related. Tagless tee that instead features a custom screen printed neck tag. Relatively soft print on a 100% cotton T-Shirt. T-Shirt ships in a plastic bag to protect it from the elements during shipment. T-Shirt also came with an I Hate Clowns keychain and stickers. Cons: The T-Shirt itself, though a bit shorter in length than I am typically used to, is otherwise flawless. Experimental Jetset purist might disapprove the use of the “I Hate” text above the clown names. Price: $19 but you can save 15% off your order by using the coupon code “YAKKO” at checkout.

Unique LA Spotlight: Three Apparel

During the next few days I’ll be featuring the awesome clothing brands that will be setting up booths at Unique LA, an independent design and gift show that will take place on April 24th thru the 25th at the California Market Center.

If you’re an adult with the heart of a big kid then you’ll love the tees that Three Apparel have to offer. Three Apparel specializes in modern cartoon style T-Shirts. Their shirts features vibrant colors and fun, off-the-wall characters. They’ve got a bunch of cool designs but by far my favorites include the one-eyed and five-legged Happy Attack tee and the Mario and Luigi parody, Arab Bros.

Three Apparel features the artwork of Peter Michail and Tony Salama. T-Shirts are printed on 100% Cotton Fine Jersey tees and are available for sale for $20.

Video Games Lied To Me

Our friends over at Made With Awesome just released a brand spanking new tee that is perfect for people who aspired to be plumbers based solely on their experiences with Super Mario Bros. You see, Super Mario Bros. changed everything in 1985 when it came to the plumbing industry. Super Mario Bros. was a game changer. It made plumbing exciting and almost James Bond like. As a plumber, you jumped through pipes, beat up the bad guys, smashed a few turtles along the way and then get the girl in the end. Super Mario Bros. made plumbing awesome!

But as with other things in real life, plumbing was not all it was made out to be. After the release of the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES was released, a number of eager kids aspired and eventually became full-fledged plumbers. Needless to say, there was to be no pipe jumping, no beating up the bad guys, no run in with turtles and unfortunately, plumbers never got the girl in the end.

And so the lives of these ordinary plumbers carried on. They’d fix broken pipes, but not do much else. For many children turned adults, the plumbing industry was a big fat lie. And to bring this sham to the attention of the masses, Made With Awesome delivers their very straight forward Video Games Lied To Me About The Adventurous Lives of Plumbers. Because sometimes, you just need to draw a line. This is Made With Awesome drawing a big fat line. You can buy it now from Made With Awesome for just $22.

And P.S., if you enjoyed this shirt then it is a necessity that you check out this list of 101 Nintendo T-Shirts.

Coty’s Thoughts:

I’ve Developed A Theory That Proves I’m Not A Nerd by Made With Awesome. Pros: Shirt comes packaged in a clear plastic bag and included with the shirt were a few Made With Awesome stickers. The T-Shirt is printed on an American Apparel tee so you know that I am a fan of the sizing and fit. The print is nice and large, and more importantly, it’s soft. The shirt features a screen printed neck label with the name of the shirt and its creators. Cons: There is truly nothing that I disliked about the Made With Awesome tee or my Made With Awesome experience. Made With Awesome is in fact … awesome! They put out an excellent product and I think you try them out it you haven’t already. Price: $20.

So in Philadelphia I’ve been told that there are three main places to get Philly Cheesesteaks: Pat’s, Geno’s and Jim’s. Jim’s Steaks is the best of the three in my opinion by a mile! They’re cheesesteaks are so mouth watering good that they’re awesome! beyond belief

That’s me and that’s the Liberty Bell. Awesome!

I Mario New York by Nintendo. Pros: A nice alternative to the basic I Heart NY tourist T-Shirt. When I first saw this shirt at Nintendo World in New York, my eyes just gravitated to it and I knew that I just had to have it. The shirt is screen printed on the front and back and is also tagless and features a screen printed label inside the neck. Cons: What cons? Well, the only con is that maybe you won’t be able to find this shirt anymore since I picked it up nearly three years ago. Price: $22.99.

101 Nintendo T-Shirts For The Ultimate Nintendo Gamer

To say that the Nintendo Entertainment System was a part of my childhood is quite an understatement. The original NES was in fact a big part of my childhood. I recall countless hours playing Super Mario Bros., Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, Rad Racer, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, just to name a few of my favorite titles. I remember leaving the NES on overnight just so that I could save my place in in a particular game and continue playing the next day. I remember vigorously blowing into cartridges to kick start them back to life. I remember the countless hours of fun that I had with my NES.

101 Nintendo T-Shirts

This list is built on that childhood love that I had for Nintendo. To this day, you can still catch me playing with the Nintendo Wii or my DS. The only difference now is that I can look good (and so can you) in Nintendo gear while I am gaming out. Enjoy the list!

I’d love to hear which one of these are your favorites and whether or not you own any of these tees! And if you know of a NINTENDO related shirt not on this list then please tell me about it. Leave a comment below in the comments section and let me know!

If you enjoyed this post then please, please, please, tell your friends about it! A simple Tweet or post on your Facebook page will help to get the word out, and a link back on your blog would be greatly appreciated!

The Amphibian suit is useful for underwater jobs, The raccoon suit for those hard to reach toilets in the clouds, and a doctor’s outfit is always nice to have on hand for… umm… we’ll let you use your imagination.

Tetris Taught Me the Fundamentals of Architecture

Here’s yet another excellent shirt from Twitter Tees, the Threadless and Twitter side project, and it’s a shirt that any kid who grew up in the early 90’s with a Gameboy or NES can attest to. It’s called Tetris Taught Me The Fundamentals of Architecture and is an obvious homage to the brick building game that was a gaming and cultural phenomenon. The featured tweet was originally tweeted by @nintechno. You can pick up this shirt from Threadless Twitter Tees for $18.

Coexiist: Ultimate Gaming Shirt?

In theory, Coexiist from ThinkGeek.com should be the ultimate T-Shirt for gaming geeks. That’s in theory. In my eyes, simply slapping on components of 8 different gaming brands and logos makes this shirt look like one hot mess. You know why gaming consoles cannot coexist? It’s because the good stuff thrive and the bad stuff, well, they disappear quicker than you can say Apple Pippen.

Airdrop by Glennz Tees

I’ve been talking a lot about tees that bring back feelings of nostalgia (see NES Zapper post below) and the newest tee from Glennz Tees really hit my nostalgic soft spot. Airdop is yet another excellent design by Glenn Jones, how he comes up with these awesome ideas on a consistent basis amazes me. I need to pick up this shirt, dust out my vintage Game Boy and blow on my original Tetris cartridge and get my game on. That would be awesome. You guys can pick up this tee from Glennz Tees for $19.95.

ZAP Exploded

The Exploded guys (that’s what I’m calling em’) have done it again! This time, they’ve deconstructed the original Nintendo Zapper for our geek pleasure. Designed by artist Garry Booth, this design brings us all the way back to the 80’s when Duck Hunt was a fresh faced phenom and not regulated to the used video game bin at the local video game store. 

Growing up I LOVED playing Duck Hunt if only because using a gun to shoot flying pixels resembling ducks on my TV screen was the closest I would get to duck hunting in Hawaii. 

This gem can be had from ZapExploded.com for $17.
