Grats ace- Clever idea-

@woot -

I like the idea of sponsored derbies as long as they are rare. I think that adds to their charm- If they became a regular thing, THEN I think the YOUS SOLD OUT banners would start waving. ;)

Since comments on the whole idea of "sponsored derbies" were requested:

I don't play Temple Run. I think the subject wasn't a great choice for a derby; the submissions were highly similar. There's a man, some skull-headed monkeys, and usually a golden idol.

I think sponsored derbies in a similar vein are a great idea, though. But hopefully the theme will be something that people have different things to say about.

I love the game, and I love Patrickspens' winning design. Great choice, Imangi!

As for sponsored derbies, I like the idea in moderation. Having them too often will likely be overkill. Thanks for starting with this one!

Maybe do the sponsored derby as an occasional side deal kind of thing?

Congratulations on the win, Patrick.
Congratulations on the comment from Patrick, Imangi.
He has more individual shirt prints than comments.

Great, now I've got to put Temple-Running Shows on my Christmas List.

I'm still waiting on the Nancy Spumoni Snow Boots.

I agree... I'm not familiar with the game, so this shirt design was lost on me. I've been a Woot member for a long time and have loved many of the past shirt designs but his one left me scratching my head. I don't play games on my mobile phone (since it's provided by my employer) and I don't have much use for a tablet; my plain old PC provides me with plenty of entertainment on a nice big 24" screen. Why would I want to bother with watching a movie or playing a game on a tiny screen? Seems rather L-a-m-e to me...

Only 5? Click Patrick's catalog link, aka Destroyer of Closets.

Congrats on being selected as the winner, PS!

I like how the patrickspens bio text on this one just says "Bio text." It's almost like he wins these things so often that woot's actually run out of things to say about him.

I agree that the sponsored shirts should be rare, possibly once a month at the most. Has anyone considered that this would open the door for a Woot sponsored derby?

erm, don't want to be a party pooper, but i'm thinking sell-out on this idea. i wouldn't think that shirt.woot is hurtin' for money that they need sponsors...tho it is a cool marketing tactic for imangi. thumbs up for imangi from a marketing standpoint, thumbs down to shirt.woot for going with it.

Congrats, Patrick!
And I think these sponsored derbies are a great idea! I just wish I was good enough to win one. I've never entered a design before.

I actually love the idea of sponsored derbies (derbys?...I dunno). It breaks up the monotony of the usual ones. As for those who have never played Temple Run (me included), it's no different than when a winning design is themed after a movie or show you've never seen. Happens all the time to me. No biggie. Anyway, I personally like sponsorships...seeing Woot partner up with businesses I like is a good thing.

I can't stand when people label others as sell outs. This is a capitalist society! THEY'RE A BUSINESS!!! Of course they're trying to make money!

An occassional sponsored derby seems like a win-win for everyone. My 11-yr old daughter is going to LOVE this shirt! As an aside to the Temple Run people, she prefers Temple Run over Temple Run 2 for reasons she cannot explain.

Most Woot shirts leave me scratching my head, especially ones based on comic books, videogames, or TV shows created after 1990. I still check Woot daily and own about 30 different Woot shirts. So this curmudgeon doesn't think the occasional head-scratch is a reason to skip a theme.

The first thing I thought of, when I saw this shirt, was Spy vs. Spy.

I had never heard of Temple Run, before this derby.

Clever cartoony fun.

re: sponsored derbies: interesting to see what artists did with the limited elements, although I don't get that excited about the competition when I'm not likely to buy a shirt. I am now a little curious about the game so that cross promotion angle worked. As mentioned by a few people,the occasional sponsored derby seem like a good idea, although it'll help if the sponsors/theme/swag remain cool/fun/intriguing. There probably won't always need to be archeology involved for that ; )

I liked the sponsored derby for a rare occasion. Like some have voiced already, I'm not a TR player, but when the derby was announced, I downloaded the game to try it out. So, sponsors probably got some good run out of the derby if some people like me actually downloaded the game.

Fun change, but try not to over do it.

Great design. Wish that it could be printed on a running shirt - like a Dri-FIT material.

Not all businesses are entirely or primarily motivated by money. When they compromise those other purposes to make more money, they are said to be "selling out." I see no problem with the term, and think it applies to what happened when Woot was bought by Amazon (in general, but particularly on shirt.woot). I don't blame anybody, as I'm sure shirt.woot's margins were razor-thin before, and they are in fact a business, but I do miss the "old days."

Although the people are still pretty cool, such that whiny posts like mine will probably not get deleted.

And yeah, sponsored derbies aren't all that different from the standard pop-culturey stuff, so no big deal.
