Remember those choose-your-own-adventure books that we used to read as kids in the 80’s? Well, this T-Shirt from Wordboner is sorta like those books. And I dig it. Wear the shirt and the people around you fill in the blank. You heart someone? Then look at that special someone in the eyes and then point to this shirt with an affectionate smile. Annoyed at someone? Roll your eyes and then point to the shirt. Absolutely hate someone? Well, you could always flip them off and then point to this shirt. It’s multipurpose.
Bad tempered. Moody. Don’t Admit To Anything. One could argue that I can be all three of those things (sometimes at the same time). Then again, most of the time I’m a pretty fun and easy going guy. And that is basically what UQ Tee is all about, mixing our virtues and vices, our good and bad characteristics. Each tee design features human contradictions printed on the back of the shirt.
“This idea is a spin-off of another project of mine, called life paper (available only in Portugal), that consists of surprising someone on one day, by taking him/her to visit places related with his/her life past and present to meet important friends and family in each one of them. Last year I did a postcard campaign to promote this project, focused on bad characteristics from each one of my surprised customers. Some people told me that it would be fun to make a brand of t-shirts based on the same concept, which I did. So here I am.” -Hugo Quinta
The shirts are available in in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. If you love wordplay, then I think that you will dig these T-Shirts. My favorite from the bunch is I’m Moody, which also features the words but sweet scribbled on the other end of an arrow. Love it! My only gripe with these T-Shirts is that they all seem to feature the same front design, featuring the UQ Tee logo and the words Do You Want To See The Back of Me? I think it would be cool if it was just the back main design placed on the front of the T-Shirt.
If you dig these UQ Tees then you can pick them up over at their online shop for €22.00 each.
