i wonder how they rotate the blocks...

Don't believe it, people, it's just propaganda! Don't you realize that the final block you drop on the end will just make the bottom floors disappear?

A regulation Tetris game has 10 columns and the workers are only building up 9 of them...I KNEW the Russians would be up to something!

Anyone have a translation of the Russian text? Just to make sure I'm not advertising something stupid before I buy.

It's fun to know that the Tetris theme has words, and they actually relate to blocks and stacking!

Steady now, figure out where you're going to put it--

Hey this is pretty easy--

Don't do that!

OH NO WHAT'S GOING ON WHY IS THE MUSIC GETTING FASTER?!?

YOU BLOCKED US IN!!1!

I CAN FIX IT! I CAN FIX IT! I JUST HAVE TO--

NO NOT THERE! NOT THAT WAY!

THERE'S NO ROOM, I CAN'T--

GAAAAHHHH!

Oh hey, in for one. ^_^

I hope those workers are careful, rows of blocks may disintegrate at any moment.

I'm not ordering until I know what it says! I don't want to actually show support for Socialism while I'm "enjoying" unemployment....

Translations: on the guy's shirt it says "Build like it's for yourself"

and at the bottom it says "We'll gift happiness to the new settlers".
Roughly.

you're forgetting the reserved space for the straight line drop!

Leave it to the Russians to focus on progress and forget the foundation.

"Hey Charlie, we just finished the last floor!"

"That's great Frank...wait...what the...NOOOOOOOOO"

*insert crash*

Silly Tetrisians.

This is how video game references are done right. It's funny and the reference is recognizable but far from the only aspect of the shirt to make it worth wearing. Great work, and congrats, Jewelwing!

My wife studied Russian, and was trying to read/translate the words. She has no idea what it says. My response: "Honey, it's a shirt."

I bet Yakov Smirnoff would buy this shirt, if he were still around.

He's not dead-- just in Branson, Missouri.

Oh Lawd, that's pretty much the worse possible way you could bring down the T block! I mean, it's so inefficient!!

Here is your translation, guys:

On his shirt it says: build as if you are building for yourself.

Underneath it says: let's deliver happiness to future building occupants.

yarp, this is also why the bottom rows are still intact.

I love the style and design here, but the Tetris reference just spoils it for me.

As perhaps the only child of the 80s/90s I know who never really had any first-hand experience with video games (and perhaps even if I hadn't been), I'd feel a bit of a poser latching on to this particular overdone nostalgia trend.

QFT. Those colors are GORGEOUS, and major respect for making a good orange woot.

Look closely - there's a person with a big stick getting ready to push up on the top block, while another with extended hands is going to complete the rotation!

Believe it or not, this is how blocks were turned at many Soviet construction sites and it's still used on some to this day! Don't underestimate the power of Communism. You can build cities on pure enthusiasm - why buy expensive machines???

All these years, I've been warning of Communism to my friends. Now -- come to find out -- I've been participating in what seems to be a Commie-training program disguised as Tetris..

I feel so dirty..

The top block being brought in should have been a more tetris like piece instead of one block....

Google Language Translation (I know nothing of Russian):

СТРОЙ КАК ДЛЯ СЕБЯ! = HOW TO BUILD FOR YOURSELF!

ПОДАРИМ РАДОСТЪ НОВОСЕЛАМ! = PRESENT RADOST housewarming!

Maybe someone who knows something about Russian can do something better with the second one

Wait...I got owned by woot!?!

Why does the guy standing on the left have an erection (pun intended)?

Also, is the smaller guy on the right facing forward or backwards? I can't tell.
