The wires of the wastebasket only adds to the can's melancholy, as if it's behind bars for something innocent.

I couldn't possibly wear this shirt, it's just too sad. Poor little guy

This design captures that sense of alienation and despair that results from being alone, having one's purpose thwarted through no action of one's own, and being unable to do anything about it. I love the emotion and story captured in a fairly simple narrative frame.

I've had a lot of moments over the past year when I've felt like that can. I identify with its despair. A design that can make a human identify with a soda can is touching upon something fundamental to the human experience, IMHO.

Referencing the title, not the singing out loud thing.

I don't understand why there aren't refund programs everywhere. I let the bottles and cans stack up because I know one of those days I'm gonna be strapped for cash and can't even buy a can of tuna - but wait - I have $10 worth of nickels stacked up in my kitchen!

Bloody genius these refund programs. Get the cans out of landfills and food into my tummy. Get in mah belly!

Personal info is personal.

If you look at him long enough, you see him go from a sad, rejected, tossed away little can to someone who is clearly measuring and planning what he needs to do to break out.



He will triumph. He will recycle.

BTW, that song is brilliant.

Would have preferred a more generic looking can...

You're not alone. But what really scared me was that I thought of the song when I saw the title from the woot.com page.

I saw what you did there, shirt.woot. Before you even saw me seeing you doing what you did. (what you did. what you did.)

Make it stop. Please?

I almost feel like the message is a little mixed. The can looks so sad, I feel like I need to set him free on a beach or field...

Yeah, that title kicked it off for me, too.

I sorta want to buy this just so that i can wear it a lot, and then stop.

Then, when it's offered again, I can post that it's just a shirt that I used to wear.

Without referencing the claims of your website... The can is red. That is the only Coke-like thing about it. Red is a primary color.

Had it been Blue - that would been Pepsi-like, Yellow would have been Mellow-Yellow like... Silver would have been Diet Coke, or Coors.... Green would have been Mtn Dew, or 7up or Sprite... Brown would have been A&W ....

What color, exactly, would have been to your liking?

Maybe you should think of it as being red for Dr. Pepper or Big Red or Bud Weiser or Cheerwine or Mr. Pibb...


Read my blog or, you know, don't. It's up to you.

I'd also point out that our protagonist is locked in a spiritual prison. The very aluminum of which she is made is now severed from the great cycle of reincannation. Goodbye friend! Purgarbtory is unjustified, but endure like a can! There will come a day when you again find your purpose, when your biped creators find treasure troves in the trash, when wrought by destiny you find your form traversing the suns

kinda wish whoever picked the design to be printed would do a wright up about why they picked the design...not just on this design i mean every weekend

But should we be recycling sentient cans? What if he comes back as a sentient car? Then you're 50/50 between it being Christine or Kitt.

Alternatively, you could have clicked the word "Now" in the revised lyrics.
Woot is good about referencing the songs they parody.

move along

Great design. Love the frownlyface on the sad can. Catchy singable writeup too, which will now be stuck in my head during my 5 hour drive today, thank you very much. Especially this blasted part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=8UVNT4wvIGY#t=96s.

What the devil is he saying there?! If I were a lip reader, my head would asplode. Ack!

Seriously, the derby had a ton of completely awesome designs! And out of all of them, I would rate this as absolutely one of the worst, and yet here it is...


Shirt.Woot! needs more genuinely artistic and well composed shirts to hit print. Until then, enjoy wearing a massive, practically empty wire can on your chest.

Love this! I especially love how the can is glowing in the sunlight - it adds some hope, maybe.

Also really dig the write-up. I still love that song, and it's various incarnations.

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...

I have a feeling that the switch out from DST screwed up the ordering servers. FIX IT, WOOT!

As for who picked this design - read the writeup; the sponsor of this derby was the guest editor.

Sorry for the late reply, I've pinged staff to see why there could be a order processing issue.
Thanks for you patience

Not only that, but the bar shadows are not carried across the can. Granted, it's an artistic cartoon expression, so it doesn't have to be completely realistic. But as a an amateur photographer, the lighting flaws are apparent.
