The fake missile crisis T-shirt selling scheme, oldest trick in the book.

Anyway, you guys all think I'm a hero, and I'll accept that responsibility

[–]poopsicle88[🍰] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

A few more missiles and I'll be rich!

Hahaha tricky capitalists

And now you know the answer to the question: if I had minutes to live what is the plate lunch I’d choose to eat?

[–]Vistaer 170 points171 points  (4 children)

I'd take the one that says "I survived the Inbound Ballistic Missile Threat to Hawaii and all I got was this stupid T-Shirt"

[–]pink_echoes 9 points10 points  (0 children)

A redditor with taste in books!

[–]Brenaldo17 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I made out with Skippy for 3 minutes and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt

[–]DrCatsTheDr 161 points162 points  (12 children)

Print On Demand?

[–]WiseWordsFromBrett 137 points138 points  (8 children)

Since it’s the size of a piece of paper I’m gonna say computer print out iron on?

[–]dragondadd 126 points127 points  (4 children)

...you can see the edges of the paper..

[–]manawesome326[🍰] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Another mystery solved

[–]coltwanger 13 points14 points  (0 children)

We did it, Reddit!

[–]LAVA_ENEMA 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You have been made a moderator of r/RBI.

[–]devonthed00d 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Screen printer here, can confirm it is a cheap iron on. Design is ugly af too. Lol

[–]ccReptilelord 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Waste no time on design to grab that early sales rush.

[–]Canadian_Infidel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But if you were wearing that shirt in Hawii today? Worth it.

[–]krystar78 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Yea. Most shops can go from imgur to tshirt in like 10 minutes.

[–]Canadian_Infidel 12 points13 points  (1 child)

It's like they have the technology of 1997 at their fingertips.

[–]krystar78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well there's still development in either direct print and also print transfer technologies. It's not completely stale.

Back in 2003, I was in SC for hurricane Charlie. It hit us at 9pm, the souvenir shops in Myrtle Beach had “I survived Hurricane Charlie” T-shirts by 8am the next day.

[–]MidnightSlinks 66 points67 points  (4 children)

A bit different since we know about hurricanes days in advance.

[–]CjJcPro 41 points42 points  (3 children)

YEAH but no one knew they would SURVIVE. Sooo...

[–]btsierra 21 points22 points  (2 children)

The ones who didn't probably weren't buying shirts.

[–]EltaninAntenna 0 points1 point  (1 child)

And if they were, we've got bigger problems than a hurricane.

[–]ubiEbruis -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Nah those are just people who vote democrat. All is good.

[–]bobbyhill626 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Those tourist t-shirt stands are the most cringe inducing thing in that town. The worst shirts are the ones made for couples. Just the trashiest shit ever.

[–]TheHarperValleyPTA 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The other day I saw a couple walking hand in hand wearing matching “she mad” and “y u mad” shirts. I don’t know if I was more upset about the matching shirts or the fact that they used so an outdated meme

[–]Just4TodayIthink 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's almost like.. T-shirt shops have T-shirt Iron-on machines...


[–]Jc_1978 1 point2 points  (1 child)

When the tsunami hit Japan in 2011 I was on vacation in Hawaii, Crazy Shirts had shirts made the next day with proceeds going to Tsunami relief efforts. It was a scary night. Hotel slipped a note under the door stating the warning and to fill your bathtub with water.

[–]Alan_Smithee_ 27 points28 points  (0 children)

What a time we live in. The T-shirts come out on the same day.

[–]InsidiousTroll 21 points22 points  (0 children)

So it was all just a ruse to sell T-shirts?

[–]selkirk08 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Lotta children conceived in Hawaii today

[–]Donald__Cuck_ 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I'm not so sure making this thing into a joke is a good idea. Right now would be an opportunity to actually launch a missile at the U.S. because people might think it's a mistake.

[–]ThomBraidy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I see what you are saying but I feel like the whole "lunatic with the nukes" situation we have actually plays out as an effective deterrent.


[–]sfdsquid 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is not a drill! Just kidding! This is not a drill!

[–]wcbsignsnc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Capitalism at its finest.

[–]I-seddit 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Man, this has the potential to be the most ironic t-shirt in human history...
(hoping to hell I'm wrong)

[–]Diandeng 19 points20 points  (0 children)

It looks more iron-on-ic.

[–]Sunfysh 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Howww did they do that so quickly

[–]devonthed00d 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Well they only spent about 45 seconds on the design, so yeah.

[–]pm_your_asshole_gurl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah I work for a t shirt company and you can make them with vinyl transfers. Takes like 15 mins and half of that time is waiting for the heat press to warm up.

[–]Roondar1[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Print-out, iron-on design

[–]the_road_warrior 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shoots. No bada me you faka.

[–]p0tat07 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought the text at the bottom was an evil laugh

[–]gcbeehler5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow, that was fast. Was this a thing before or did they really print t-shirts that fast?

[–]ll8bitHEROll 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that thing dry yet?!

[–]azizam213 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's an instant classic

[–]ShinyDisc0Balls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How long do you think it takes to print a shirt??

[–]billyfsupdaily 0 points1 point  (0 children)

President Skroob - Six?! What happened to seven?
A.I. - Just kidding!

[–]DrunkenShitposter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The new "I Survived Three Mile Island."

[–]2_poor_4_Porsche 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I bet that we will eventually find out that NK actually launched a missile on January 13, 2018.

[–]Wheres_that_to 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Na, think about the timing,just a test to see how people react, and instal fear.

[–]f33dback 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They dont have a proper testing regime thanks to Comcast/Verizon :/

[–]2_poor_4_Porsche 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is valid. I suspect something other than just an innocent mistake.

I suspect many of the things we have seen recently, like the fire that shut down Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport, may very well have been trial balloons to gauge the response of the people.

[–]Wheres_that_to 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It seems really odd, would they admit if they had been "testing"?

[–]THN_Hammerman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was just Maui, messin' around.

[–]Foo3112 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This looks like someone worked on this shirt for a total of 25 seconds.

[–]McFeely_Smackup 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Jesus, tacky or not, you have GOT to be impressed with the time to product.

[–]everypostepic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You ever wonder why when you're doing something on your device, and you get those annoying confirmations on your screen?

This is why.

[–]Mariajosegirl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was expecting a "I survived the ballistic missile in Hawaii"

[–]PeopleRCornholes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What?! Too Soon?

[–]larsbeijaard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone even wants to buy that crap?!

[–]Spadeinfull -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

And people always down vote me when I say false flags exist. psht.

[–]GNTR- -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

Has anyone ever heard of a little book called 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' ?

[–]Hold_my_hernia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Never heard of it
