New Shirt Reminder: "Existential BS"

Existential BS Limited Edition T-Shirt at 200Nipples.com

Something always bothered me about those “You Are Here” markers on map directories and such.  You see, because I wasn’t “here” where the marker was. I was there where I was standing. Why didn’t they say “You Are There”? I mean that’s where I really was, right? Does it even matter? Am I terrible  at picking my battles?

“Existential BS” will be on sale tonight at midnight.

If you like this design, let us know in the comments. If you hate it, tell us why. The more feedback we get, the better.

UPDATE: When you guys talk, we listen. There seems to be a group consensus that the arrow in the design above looks like it’s saying some along the lines of, “you are in my crotch” which isn’t all that desirable, so we’re nixing the arrow. The revised design is below and will be posted on the main site before the shirts are officially on sale.

    at first i thought it was supposed to be pointing to a crotch, the way obnoxious tshirts from obnoxious sites usually do when they are most likely also talking about beer. i thought it was telling me…i have no idea what i thought it was telling me, but I thought the shirt thought i was very close to its penis.

    that’s what i got from it, too. i think it’d be better without the arrow.

    Yeah, not good.

    I expected more from 200nipples…

    Maybe could have a basic map under there to highlight the point – I do get what you mean about the penis/crotch thing!

    I agree with Digdag88.

    Yeah, even if it’s not meant to be a crotch notice, it will always seem like that.

    I had the same initial response as all the others commenting. It seemed to be pointing at the crotch, another “massive ego” or “I’m a douche, my shirt proves it” type shirt. On hearing the explaination it does prove to be a rather clever shirt I would actually wear. Except, who really wants to have to explain something like that to everyone who sees your shirt to avoid people assuming you are a douche bag? Not me.

    Ehhhh not impressed whatsoever.

    Eh. It feels a little like a weak Seinfeld joke (“what’s the deal with the ‘you are here’ signs?”). I love this site and have ordered a couple of shirts that I dig, but I’m craving something more clever or unique than I could get elsewhere. The art lately has had a comic fanboy vibe, and the text shirts have been pretty meh. I agree with a couple of the others—200nipples is capable of much cooler stuff.

    Thanks for all the feedback, guys. The crotch thing is unfortunate and a little obvious now that it been pointed out to me, so I’m taking it off. We’ll have correct mock-ups on the site here in the next few minutes, waaaay before they go on sale.

    (See, I ask for the feedback for a reason.)

    I think this is the most boring design yet…

    at least make a shirt that says my dixie wrecked

  13. Posted by miss kitty / On January 5, 2009 at 1:08 am

    Well, crap, Wade, I wanted the penie pointer!

  14. Posted by David / On January 5, 2009 at 2:34 am

    So far, this is the worst shirt I have seen sold on this site… And probably on nearly every site as well.

    It had no thought put into the design, the concept is rather weak, and its just not original what so ever.

    Very disappointed, as I was looking forward to the new design.

  15. Posted by KoN / On January 5, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    That’s a pretty quick response time Wade. Impressive to see change so quick based on user feedback.

  16. Posted by Bob / On January 6, 2009 at 1:06 am

    @David, I think that’s pretty harsh. I have seen far worse designs on other sites.

  17. Posted by miss kitty / On January 7, 2009 at 6:56 am

    @Bob: I agree. That’s one of the best things about this site!

    Great call on giving the arrow the X. I was going to comment that it seemed to indicate that the reader was either in the wearer’s crotch, or – even more disconcertingly – in the wearer’s stomach.

    the design lacks integrity and real unavailability. anyone could make a silk screen just like this. I personally prefer the more artistic designs that you look and and know you couldn’t just get anywhere else.

    A little boring, and it looks like there is no space between “Are” and “There”

  21. Posted by Ida / On January 14, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    Well.. ive seen better ofcourse but, it is smart if you think about the REAL reason of it ofcourse… masybe it would be better if the arrow pointed forward in a 3D kinda way, meh, dont listen to me xD
