This is not a pipe.
yeah, you really don't need to know the french to understand this - its a pardoy of a mega famous painting. good stuff little g, but i'm a little dubious that the image is lifted straight from the game (correct me if i'm wrong!) 5$ nonetheless
If you want to know the English translation, um, check the title.
I love you :-)
Thanks for the comments everyone. I don't know what happened to my submission comment but basically I said that this is my take on a painting by one of my favorite artists Rene Magritte.
Also, Staffell, This image I actually drew in illustrator. The whole thing is vector, but of course it comes from Mario ;)
dude that is hilarious! i know alot of people wont know this reference but anyone familiar with surrealism will. its great!
can i give this a ten?
now i know how mario felt when he gets a 1up :)
simply great gen!
i'd wear it =]
this is great! and also the first comment cracked me up
Long live Magritte! $5
id like to dip my BAWLS in it!
...and i like the Magritte reference...
i like it... nice colors and reference! $5
It's double-nerdy on ONE shirt! I rarely mark things $5, but this gets it.
omg i will be sad if this is not printed. glow :D
this is a link to this design's reference
the non arty woudlnt get this, but cool.
i would never wear a shirt that has french on it, and its unorigional. 0
Oh, man, littleg! This is great! I'm not big on all the mario brothers/video game designs lately, but this is definitely one I'd wear!! Great idea!!
C'est vraiment top...bravo !
OMG DID YOU STEAL THIS?? U TOTLY STOL THIS DIN'T YOU!! YOU STEALR!!! JUST FOR THAT I'M ONLY GIVING IT A $5. I WAS GONNA GIVE IT A $6, BUT NOT FR A STOLN DEZIGN!!
^ Brian (tracer) You're off your rocker. lol ;)
kirksheltonart: Don't be silly, I don't hate you.
Aw I want Mario on the shirt as well :(
Magritte + Nintendo = Awesome. Oh PLEASE print this!! $5
i love youuuuuuuuuuu
^Click it if you are confused.
finally, a mario shirt that would look awesome on a girl! gimme! 5$
even thought its a artsy reference most people should still get it, it's spoofed on things like TINY TOONS for crying out loud!
But I'm afraid if i wore this I'd get beat up for being an artschool nerd and a videogame nerd. it's like 2 in one!
I'm giving it 5$ anyway! Jocks can die
this is actually pretty cool - love both the references you combined. Nice idea!
yay for a repeated theme with a different design.... 4$
I like how you've managed to bring together two different kinds of nerds together with this surrealist Nintendo philosophy. Hurray!
I wish it said "this is not a pipe" in english because ...this is not a foreign country...I crack myself up, but come one world, learn english, its good for your grey matter
come on* world
(not a good time to typo the english...look at me boost your comment count)
hahahaha super mario bros. rule $5
Looks like someone blew away her comment goal :-D
I think it's an icon we all know of, without being too obvious (mario, 80's )
I would just like to say that I had to skip over this three times before it hit me in the side of the head like a pot full of cold spaghetti noodles and I finally got it.
But now I love it with a love that words cannot express. =]
I really can't get it but it's still COOL.
please print this.
wow, what a lot of comments!! hope it gets printed!! YAY!! 5$
Well my Magritte 'Ceci n'est pas une crack pipe' scored 2.26, but you gotta lotta comments so I'm gonna add .56 say 2.82.
Great as it is, plus I love Magritte so I really like the reference.
the pipe is going to eat you. nice work!
I would buy this in a second.
i don't know how i missed voting on this one, but it would've been a 5$
Super Magritte reference. Very nice.
I have a melody in my head now... which brings back some strange memories from college...
fabulous winner :)))) enjoy, you deserved it!
I hate the fact that due to a glitch this now has the first comment showing up as mine. It's not mine... I feel like I should go on record saying that.
I agree. I did not post the comment "english please?" It is a glitch with threadless. Someone else did and now the first comment in a sub after the site redesign had defaulted to me. Totally sucks cause it makes me look like an idiot.
ZOMG GENEE GOT PRINTED?!?!
shakes fist at Brian
that's not the kind of pipe i use
man, that gag NEVER gets old :-D
You smoke a tabacco pipe then? ;)
Brian, No It doesn't does it?
Just for the record, it doesn't make you sound like an idiot. I thought you were pre-emptively mocking all of the people who've never heard of art. Evar.
sherambles, that would ruin the joke. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Treachery_Of_Images to see why.
Uh, I had no idea about the Magritte reference, but bought it because I thought it was funny in the sense that it is not a regular pipe, but instead, a very dangerous look-a-like.
i did not know it's from a famous painting.
i own this, and i am blessed that i do =D
wow i just found out what this meant, cause im learning about magritte in art.
i was always like, hmm wtf, why is this shirt conisdered so great.
well now i know
knowing genee it probably is
it's so cool to see people after they've learned something
they're still the same
thanks for the kudos. I love popping in and seeing the positive feedback. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside like I swallowed a kitten... and that is a slogan by ladykat and you should go give it love. Go on pet it like a kitty!!
I wish this would reprint :(
i wish genee would come back :(
I wish this would reprint too. Please reprint. Please. :]
Genious! If you didn't get it, try googling it.
woohooo...... need that reprinted! :)
