johnny cupcakes london store grand opening

I know I’ve already shown you the Johnny Cupcakes London store grand opening in video thanks to Suck! Clothing, but it’s cool seeing these behind the scenes vids from Johnny (and his crew).

This video shows the build out of the store.

These are the Rube Goldberg-eqsue machines that Johnny had made.

This is the final part of Johnny’s video trilogy, the grand opening itself.


Johnny Cupcakes London Store Teaser Cartoon

by Andy on February 21, 2011

The above cartoon doesn’t tell us anything new, though I would take exception to the use of “baked fresh since 1982″ at the end of the vid. Clearly Johnny hasn’t been seling tees for that long, so it’s a bit disingenuous, I would presume (perhaps wrongly) that he was born in 1982, but that isn’t quite the same as establishing a t-shirt company.


I don’t really inolve myself with sites like Digg and Reddit since I already have more than enough to read and entertain me without even more distractions, but I thought I’d search Reddit for t-shirts just to see if there was anything interesting, and I saw a thread about t-shirt sizes that I thought would be interesting. Instead of the expected argument about how buying t-shirts online is hard because you can’t see a tee and try it on before buying it (something which is negated a bit with the dominance of American Apparel being the blank of choice in indie tee stores), his gripe is with shirts shrinking after washing, leading to him having a bit of a rant and dropping the f-bomb numerous time about not being able to predict the size of t-shirts. It made me laugh, but only because I was half-expecting him to break down in tears by the end.


Vimeo Flag tee at BustedTees

by Andy on June 16, 2009


Have you ever stopped to think about how awesome YouTube is… in theory, and then noticed that the top videos (on Monday) are on the subjects of Miley Cyrus, Big Brother UK, Rugby, and a couple of live Slipknot videos. People have been saying for years that TV is going to die because of web video. They’re wrong.

However, Vimeo is a bit of a different proposition, I’m sure there’s an awful lot of crap on their too, but the videos in general do seem to be of a higher quality in terms of both content and resolution, though I’m sure I must be bringing down the average. They have a series of tees available through BustedTees, and whilst most of them are a bit boring as they’re just the Vimeo text logo, this flag design (which reminds me of a test card, that’s the idea, right?) is pretty darned cool.

Lists: Ten Great Videos About T-shirts

by Andy on April 8, 2008

After seeing rather a lot of sub-par t-shirt videos being posted to YouTube (and therefore my new baby, TeeBurst), I felt that I needed to raise my spirits by finding some videos that were actually worth a few minutes of your time.

1. Justice – D.A.N.C.E: I thought I’d kick off the list with one of my favourite French DJ duos of the moment, Justice, and their amazing music video for D.A.N.C.E which features loads of clever CGI’d tees. I’m amazed that no one has ever released these designs as I’m sure they’d be popular with more than just fans of Justice.

2. The Most T-shirts Ever Worn At Once: There are two videos on YouTube claiming to hold the record for most t-shirts ever worn, one posted by an American radio station, and this one posted by the Guinness Book of World Records… I know who I’m going with (that and the 155 tees to 244 tees discrepancy).

3. How To Fold A T-Shirt: I think this video is proof that I am so manly, I actually need to watch a video to teach me how to fold a shirt! In reality I actually watched it several times before nailing the technique completely, and it has turned into a great space saver for my ever-growing collection of t-shirts.

4. How to Screenprint T-Shirts by Make Magazine: There are lots of tutorials out there showing you how to make your own t-shirts, but Make‘s video (with some help from Etsy) is a bit more professional than most out there.

5. How To Stencil Your Own T-Shirts: If you want to design your own tees but aren’t ready to take the leap into screenprinting, the Threadbanger crew have you well covered with this great instructional video about how to stencil your own t-shirts.

6. The human flipbook: Already HYA featured, but still worth another viewing. How this is promotion for a sandwich shop I don’t know, but it is cool!

Lip Dub – Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger from amandalynferri on Vimeo.

7. Connected Ventures Lip Dub: I’m stretching a bit with this one, but I couldn’t really have a list of videos without putting in a lip dub, could I? Here, the Connected Ventures crew (the people behind BustedTees and defunker & some other non-tee related sites) lip dub to HarveyDanger’s “Flagpole Sitta,” and trust me, it’s awesome, and kinda makes me wish that I worked in a cool office.

8. Spreadshirt’s Hands Per Piece: A very, very cool video from the Spreadshirt team showing just how many people are involved with the production of a tee from Spreadshirt. Its reassuring to see how much effort goes into the creation of one of their garments, considering when people usually think of POD services they imagine them to be a rather soulless process.

9. T-Shirt Folding Machine: If #3 was too much effort for you then this t-shirt folding machine might be for you (providing you aren’t too lazy to make one). This is a pretty cool promo by All-Tribes too.

10. Origami T-Shirt: Here’s a video showing you how to make an origami t-shirt out of a £5 note. May I suggest that you try this with a regular piece of paper first?Do you know of any other cool t-shirt related videos? Post ‘em if you got ‘em.

Hood wearers easily pleased

by Andy on February 21, 2006

Now, I don’t know exactly what Jane was going for, but with that Jackass-esque intro you’d think she was about to set fire to herself then run into traffic. Nope. She just flips her hood off. Jane, were you even drunk?

btw, I was just trying to add some multimedia to the blog, which pretty much involved me going to youTube and searching for the hoody tag.
