Geek Gear: Humpty Dumpty ‘Tetris’
  |  @   |  

There’s a brand new t-shirt design up for sale over at TeeFury, and today’s design mixes fairy tales with true geek video game nostalgia.

The shirt is called “Told You So,” and it takes the Humpty Dumpty fable and begs the question: “Just HOW did Humpty fall off of that wall?” The answer here, happens to be that he was sitting on a wall consisting of classic Nintendo Tetris blocks, and we all know what happens when you fill in a section of Tetris blocks. Silly Humpty.

As always, the shirt is available for the flat rate steal of $9, and comes in sizes small, medium, large, and extra large for men and women, as well as a XXL size for the larger gentlemen.

If you dig the design, you can go and get your hands on one right now. But remember, this shirt will only available for today, December 2, 2010, until midnight tonight EST. If you miss this one-day bubble, the shirt will be gone forever and you shall weep.

Back at the beginning of April, an amazing short film called Pixels by Patrick Jean and Paris visual effects studio One More Productions was unleashed on the world.

The short video spread like fire, making it one of the more popular videos we’ve seen in a long while. And now that popularity is glowing brightly, as it has been announced that a new feature-length movie will be made based on the concept. Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions are developing the movie with Jean, and they’re out to Columbia Pictures to set the project up with the studio, which has a first-look deal with Madison.
