It may pain him to admit it, but I think JD Dowell of Los Angeles, California, is lonely. Call it a hunch. A hunch based in large part on his passive-aggressive “FriendZone” T-Shirt Kickstarter project, which for god knows what reason requires a whopping $3,000 in funding. As far as I understand it, you can print and distribute low-quality graphic tees for essentially nothing via third-party websites, but I won’t pretend to be an expert, and besides, now that I consider it, JD’s vision is too bold for any existing mass-producer of shitty, socially suicidal clothing.
Why try to explain? Let the man pitch it himself.
I am looking for funding to produce our website and 4 initial designs. Taking the trend of "shaming" and applying it to your "bestie". Each design will feature an individual trap of the "FriendZone".
Most women that I know, are completely unaware that they have relegated someone to the "FriendZone". FriendZone Tees are a fun, and lighthearted way of taking a stand against it.
The designs are in place. The production is in place. All that is needed now, is your help.
Awkward comma usage notwithstanding, I’m not sure I follow. You want a garment that can be used to “shame” the female “bestie” with whom you presumably want to get naked? I don’t have a lot of advice in matters of love, but don’t do that just made the syllabus. Shut it down, JD—there’s a month and $2,975 to go, and no need whatsoever to go through with this. You’ll find another girl, man! But while wearing a real shirt.
