Planet X/On One Tshirts by Reg Mombassa
I think they are about the most original cycling t-shirts I’ve seen in years
Original doesn’t make it good. They are infantile, naff and dont “say” anything other than “ooh I’m a bit avant-garde”. And no, I am far from a Rapha/Howies fan.
From the same school of marketing as Phaart pumps, Cove Handjobs, Stiffees and G-spots. Not being an adolescent doesn’t make you a prude or a Philistine any more than having a known artist’s name associated with something is a seal of quality or depth.
You’d look special/like a grown man with learning issues
My view of the world is complex ta.
Ah, the Ricky Gervais “Mong” defence 🙄Posted 4 years ago
You’d look special/like a grown man with learning issues wearing them.
that post is unacceptable, unnecessary as stated above very sad.
As for art sorry for me no but art to some okay no going into that debate but as I said who will buy them looking at the posts here very few, and what is planet x core customer …art loving, avant garde hip beatnik? Not the demographic I would have thought of, would love to have seen the market research on these t shirtsPosted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Just out of interest, I work with a chap who has severe learning difficulties, mental age of five.
He takes the piss out of my dress sense all the time, constantly telling me that when we’re out everyone thinks I’m the service user and he’s the support worker.
To be fair, he has a point. 🙂
And better dress sense than me.

Hand-wringing- its a joke comment
Lighten up folks
its a ‘joke comment’ using outdated terms that have long become associated with ignorance and discrimination, like Gervais’ using “mong”. I’ve never been accused of being PC or a hand wringer but I think certain terms (puff, nigger, special needs, spastic, mong etc) just have too much historic baggage to be flippantly used by people who aren’t part of that group.Posted 4 years agofervouredimageMember

Guerrilla marketing is an advertising strategy in which low-cost unconventional means (graffiti, sticker bombing, flash mobs) are utilized, often in a localized fashion or large network of individual cells, to convey or promote a product or an idea. The term guerrilla marketing is easily traced to guerrilla warfare which utilizes atypical tactics to achieve a goal in a competitive and unforgiving environment.
While most modern squibs used by professionals are insulated from moisture, older uninsulated squibs needed to be kept dry in order to ignite, thus a “damp squib” was literally one that failed to perform because it got wet. Often misheard as “damp squid”, the phrase “damp squib” has since come into general use to mean anything that fails to meet expectations.The word “squib” has come to take on a similar meaning even when used alone, as a synonym for dud.
Thanks for clearing that one up…
