I actually liked the sound shirt - it was a good use of an object (sound waves) to get the point across - but the reason I bought it was that it looks like a joint from farther away hahahaha




This shirt probably took 5 minutes to make, nothing more. Eat your own words, no one said it was a bad thing. This is just a waste to the people whom actually tried hard to make a nice design, instead get beat by something like this.

I've already thought about it, a shirt like this would be laughed at if seen in public. It's a shame that people actually voted for this. I didn't see the derby (I was on vacation) but I know there were at least 5 different designs better than this.

Simple designs for simple minds.

True, but I think this shirt is a little more than a little bit nerdy. Of course, this is just my opinion and obviously not shared by everyone since the shirt sold out.

Ridiculous to make the generalized statement that whoever likes this shirt design is 'simple.' Get over yourself. It's a tee shirt for Gawd's sakes. Everyone needs to calm themselves.

That said, I am pretty sure that after people laugh at this shirt, it will be followed up with "That's so awesome... where'd you get it?"

Nice sell out though.



Hey...I bought 2 of those 'sound' shirts and both the guys I gave them to liked them very much. My son likes the little quirks in it. He would have loved today's shirt. Wish I could have bought one before they sold out. He still has his original Gameboy by the way.

TheCrowing wrote:My biggest gripe is that the derby only produces shirts on 3 out of 7 days in the week, so it's disappointing whenever an interesting theme comes up and one of the top spots is taken by a design that was less than inspired, leaving a much better shirt either in fourth place or out of the fog entirely. As a consumer, it makes me feel like I'm being robbed of a superior product.

Take into account that I'm getting Woot Shirts shipped to me in Canada, which means A) I pay more for the shirts regardless of when I buy them and B) I have to wait at least a month before they even get here, and I think I'm in the right when I get up in arms about something like this.

(P.S. A note about copyright infringement. Someone else stated that the design patent on the Game Boy expired a number of years ago so no, the design is technically not trespassing on copyright, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't "stolen" on some intellectual level. And if you're going to steal, you might as well steal something that no one ever thought of stealing before.)



Woot may pick a good entry from the derby that didn't win, and print it later

On a side note, has anyone here had their shirts shipped internationally? I've ordered before, but I've always had them shipped to friends and family in the USA. Any idea whether an international order would have a chance of arriving by Halloween?


Highly unlikely. It takes a month to get to Canada, and two weeks to Japan (it's air mail here...and Japanese post is extremely efficient). I've never heard of quicker shipping for a shirt.

Late, but still in for one. As a sucker for nintendo products, I have owned nearly every iteration of the Gameboy (except for the micro).

I ordered this for Halloween but didn't get the expedited shipping. I want to change that and pay the extra 5$. Is there anything I can do?

If it hasn't shipped yet, you can try e-mailing Woot at service@woot.com to ask if they will overnight it and charge you the extra $5 (don't forget to include your order number). No guarantees they will, but the worse they can do is say No.

After missing the woot by a couple of minutes I broke down and paid the extra money. It seems like a great everyday shirt. The design may be simple, but it is wonderfully clever.

I hesitated to get it on the first day because I thought this shirt might scare guys away. I paid extra the very next day--one for me, another for my dear brother.

I am still waiting for the shirts. Estimated delivery date was a few days ago. Oh well...

Hopefully you've got yours by now; I ordered the shirt the 1st of the month and I have yet to receive it - and I live four hours south of the Dallas area. My tracking says that the shirt is currently in Denver, Colorado, which doesn't make the least bit of sense.

My last shirt arrived within just a few business days. If not for that, I probably would let it go, but I think I should drive up to the Woot offices and just ask for a shirt, then drive back home. It'll be faster, since tomorrow there's no mail (Veteran's Day).
