That’s right, just in time for the holidays, we are rolling out some new TMtP swag. And this time, we’re going way beyond t-shirts. And by that we mean, Troi and Crusher may have gone a little nuts in the Spreadshirt product creator.
Okay, all of the new merch is available in our Spreadshirt shop, where you can also still find all of the old classics. You’ll notice that you can now sort by product category, which we hope is helpful. Also, Spreadshirt has said that purchases should be made by December 12th to guarantee they get to you in time for Christmas with standard shipping. In case you’re actually going to buy some of this awesomeness for the people on your list or put it on your own wishlist.
Here are some of the highlights of the (ridiculous) holiday line:
Bags to Carry all of the Things:
You guys! We found out there were all these different kinds of bags we could put blog jokes on! They sort of fall into three subcategories. First there are:
The Magical and Non-magical Backpacks.
Inspired by Bobert and Mega-G’s tour of Robert’s magical Mary Poppins bag, the Magical Backpack lets everyone know you are prepared. And magical.
As for the Non-magical Backpack? Well it’s true… Unless you mean a cappella magic! Because you can use this bag to carry the only tool of the trade you need: your handy dandy pitch pipe. That way, if Ross’ pitch pipe ever breaks again, everyone will know to turn to you for help. *Pitch pipe not included.
Next up there are:
The (Preemptive) 2010-2011 True Group Reunion Tour Bags (Duffel and also available in Beyond the Point Drawstring).
You may think we’re jumping the gun on this one, but we just want to be prepared for when the True Group has their reunion tour. We sort of imagine that they’ll go by the name “Beyond the Point,” which is why it’s featured on the drawstring bag. So you’ll be way ahead of the game if you get either of these bags.
And finally, for those days when you have a few extra things to carry or plan on doing some shopping:
Classic TMtP Tote Bags. Featuring McButters, Dear Keith, and Elmo Sings Bass.
They’re bags! They’ll hold things! Lots of things! Please note, these bags only have designs on one side (so they do not feature whatever appears on the back of their respective shirts). They’re still way more silly than any tote bag you have right now. Guaranteed.
But Maybe You’d Like to Adorn Everything in Your Life with Buttons:
We can help with that!
Here are a few of the options. Show people you’re the favorite or go retro and get some blog points. More options are available in the store.
T and C, I Thought this was a Holiday Line, Where’s the Christmas Swag?
Oh, we’ve got ya covered. 🙂
Yup, let everyone know you’re just as dangerous as Hunsaker and as adorable as Scoot with this I’m Gettin’ Santa Hat.
Not much of a hat person? Well, how about this little piece of VP holiday cheer?
That’s right, the newly-intelligible words to the BB gun rant in “I’m Gettin’ Nothin’ for Christmas” grace the front of this I’m Gettin’ Stocking. You can thank Scoot for the fact that we can now transcribe it without mentioning bell-bottoms. And don’t worry, the punchline is on the back!
If You Didn’t Believe We Went a Little Nuts, Here’s the Random Stuff We Came Up With:
So, you may be thinking, “Bags, buttons… this all seems fairly normal, Troi and Crusher (I mean, for y’all… on the TMtP scale.)” Which, we’ll grant you, is kind of true. But don’t worry. We’ve got weird covered too. Like this:
Yup, that’s a McDictator Hot Chocolate Mug. Because nothing warms the heart like a good McTakeOver and a cup of hot chocolate.
And in either our moment of greatest pride or deepest shame, we present to you this:
The Being a Human is Hard Reflective Safety Vest. The next step in protection. If your glow-in-the-dark shirt isn’t enough, it may be time to upgrade to this safety vest, to let everyone know that, well, being a human is hard for you.
Be sure to head over to the shop, where other craziness awaits, including dog shirts, iPhone cases, and something that says “McThuggin‘” on it. Again, greatest pride or deepest shame, we’re not sure. You’re welcome or we’re sorry.
And of Course, We Need to Introduce Some New Shirts!
And boy, do we have some winners for you. First up is this gem, inspired by and featuring a quote from one of our readers:
The Pocket Scoot Shirt, in both Men’s and Ladies’. Because… don’t we all want a pocket-sized Scoot on a shelf, in our hearts? Not only can you proclaim that with this shirt, the printed “pocket” also features, well…
…a pocket-sized Scoot, peeking out from his perch on a shelf… in your heart.
But maybe instead of the shelfness of Scoot, you prefer the bold styling choices of TMtP’s resident prince. We’ve got ya covered:
It’s the Trevortastic Unisex Shirt! Embrace the bold, tie dye-loving style of Trevortastic himself. Features neon pink text.
Of course, there are some people who come to the concerts not because of the music, but for other reasons. May we present:
The Fan-fangirl Ladies’ Shirt. Let everyone know you’re a fan-fangirl. Which is, as explained on the back of the shirt, “A female fan of the human pinwheel.”
Or, to put it more simply:
Available in both Ladies‘ and Men‘s, let everyone know the REAL reason you show up to Vocal Point concerts. Features “Black Glitz” writing.
Alright, folks, that’s the new stuff! We hope you all enjoy it, or at least get a laugh from it. We certainly had fun coming up with the stuff, and there’s more than a few things here we wouldn’t be mad to see under our own Christmas tree.
