MAD Ultimate Challenge – I : Rise of the MADtee

Lo and behold! The basic design of the t-shirt(MADtee) is now ready. As announced here, the MADtee would consist of statements which would start with “You know you are a MADdie if:” 

The MADtee now will sport these statements:

“If the thing that flashes through your mind before passing out after cashing your bike into a truck is ‘Who’se gonna take my class.” (By Jonva)

“You don’t show up for a movie and your friends sell your ticket thinking you’re off being MAD!!” (By Jonva)

“People start using the word MAD as your surname.” (By Jake)

“You stop cribbing and start doing.” (By Jithin)

“You know you don’t need capes and tights to Make A Difference” (By Noorul)

“When you know you are far from perfect but you still try to put up an appearance” (By Jr)

“You wear this T Shirt all the time.” (By Jr)

 

Here, finally is the MADtee

MADtee

 

 

So will you wear this all the time???

Now for the voucher prize …. *DRUM ROLL* 

Not only are the winner’s statements on the tshirt, he is the same person who actually designed it too… And the winner is Jonva! 

*Round of applause for Jonva*

    I am a little late for blogging. I am new to MAD. Can i give a one-liner of mine, is there any scope for a new statement to be added to the MADtee?

    You know you’re a MADdie if…

    ” You know the worth of your freedom ”

    Hey Satya dude,
    Don’t want to do an overhaul of the designs now since a lot of effort went into it.. This event anyhow is closed for now.. So tell you what, roll up your socks, put your blogging shoes on and keep watching this space for the MAD Ultimate Challenge 2.. It’s gonna come soon.. You can hit us with all you got then.. How does that sound?? :)

    Pooja,
    The idea behind making MADtees black is very simple :
    1. Black Shirt + Jeans = Youth Uniform
    2. Universal colour = Suits everybody

    And it especially makes sense for this as there is a lot of writing involved, and as Anu put it, the text stands out..

    And anyhow, I seriously don’t think Pink is the colour to go on this.. :D

  33. Vinaya says

    but MADdie sounds simple and nice… madster is a lil hard to pronounce (for instance if i have a lisp i would have to keep pointing to the tee to let ppl kno what i am)

  57. says

    Now see, that proves my point precisely.. You see, when people see us wearing this tee, they should come up and ask what MAD is..

    If they are reminded of Gangsters and Mobsters, they wouldn’t do that now would they? :P

    Maddie is NOT boring, it’s adorable.. The questions would be flocking to the one wearing the tee.. :D

    Thanks for clearing all that up Meril ji. :D

  65. says

    Because I AM adorable? :D

    Besides, what do you want to wear then? A tee that reminds people of criminals and violence and bloodshed (as Meril so rightly pointed out) and then tell them that we are ACTUALLY volunteers of a good cause??

    Na, don’t think so.. My vote still goes for Maddie.. :)

    @Jr – can’t we have a poll or something ;)

    I still stand by MADster…. MADdie somehow sounds like an MTV VJ’s nickname or something… :D M.A.D material is fine too…but shouldn’t we coin a term for ourselves anyway?
    What do we call MAD volunteers anyway….MADdies, MADsters, MADders, MAD people..?…

    Ok ok.. I’ve got a flash of inspiration..

    So, the Tee will say :

    ‘You know you’re M.A.D if.. ‘

    Glo, we can have all the polls you want, but I’m not gonna be able to live with myself if I give any sort of chance to MADster.. He he he he :P
