Every once in a while a t-shirt trend starts that gets HUGE. We all remember how the movie Napoleon Dynamite created one of the largest t-shirt trends in internet history with the t-shirt that read Vote for Pedro. The movie was a cult classic and the t-shirt that was worn by Napoleon in the movie became an instant classic. As a fan of Napoleon Dynamite I can understand why the t-shirt became so popular. But what is the deal with this trend of Chuck Norris T-shirts? Overture shows that over 3440 people just on the Yahoo network searched for a Chuck Norris T-shirt last month. Chuck Norris whose show Walker, Texas Ranger went off the air over 5 years ago and is just a guy on informercials. Then why the craze?
Shops at Spreadshirt has featured Chuck Norris T-Shirts many times and even has a top spot on their new Visual Buying Guide. The visual guide as reviewed on T-Shirt Talk has a 250 club. Basically if a designer at Spreadshirt sells over 25o of a particular design they join the “250 club” and get extra exposure.
This Chuck Norris t-shirt has also been included in Spreadshirts 250 Club along with Drink Like a Champion t-shirt as seen above. Right now there are only two shirts at Spreadshirt that have that honor. Is Chuck really that cool? A site called called Chuck Norris Facts has some info on Chuck and has the option to customize your own Chuck Norris T-Shirt customized. What has this world come to?
Can someone please explain to me the Chuck Norris craze?
