This should be printed in the light blue for girly sizes too! Cyan is fine, but the light blue is closer to the original design.

Reprint Girlie sizes!!!

Too bad it's not a scoop neck!

You counted wrong, vindicco. There are most definitely 99 balloons. I used Paint to but a black mark on each one that I counted, just to be sure =)

This seems like it would be a great candidate for a girly scoop or v-neck option

There are not 99 red balloons on that shirt. Totally not buying it. Disappointed. (Yes, I counted them.)

Yeah, I'm positive it's not about baby Elliot. "Neinundneinzig Luftballons" came out in 1983, and the English counterpart "Ninety-Nine Red Balloons" came out in 1984, years before the whole Oprah baby thing.

Cool shirt, though.

This would be lovely on a whitish background.

I'm pretty sure the 99 red balloons song is NOT about baby Elliot, but about the cold war.

one of my all-time faves... reprint girly tank sizes!

This was one of the first Threadless tees I owned... I've just placed an order for 16 more - they'll be a uniform for my Ultimate Frisbee team this season!

I agree that it looks like blood droplets.

But there is a story behind the 99 balloons. Its about a lil baby Elliot who lived for just 99 days.

You can look it up on YouTube.

I own two of these! Just bought two more are replacements (after 5 years! these things are well made and last forever!)
