When the Lobster Goes Mainstream
I was in the Gap the other day and saw this t-shirt. My initial thought was this is a horrible play on “Rock Lobster”. I pictured the GAP Management team with their khakis and Joey C black frame glasses saying “Lobsters are so in this year, we need to tap that market”. I have an idea “How about lobsters with a guitar head and call it Rock Lobster”.
I did a little more digging and this t-shirt made it to the GAP from a contest on an indie t-shirt website called Threadless. Am I brainwashed by this being in the mainstream at the gap? If I saw in an indie store would I have said how awesome I need that? What do people think of this?
