Larry Mullen Jr.: Scorpion t-shirt UPDATE!!!

31 Comments

OK folks so I shot off two emails last night – 1 to the PR rep at Edun who was nice enough to research the shirt origins for me. The other to the Merchandise Mgr. at ONE. My angle with both was basically: lots of people want this shirt. Nearly 500 people have viewed my posts here on the topic in three weeks and I continue to get searches daily. Do you want to make money? Make this shirt!

In the meantime I’ve been considering getting the design as a tattoo. Now I am not a tattoo person mostly bc 1. I’m a wimp about pain and 2. I could never think of anything I wanted enough on my skin permanently.

I wouldn’t do it if I wasn’t a Scorpio. But I love being a Scorpio, I love Larry Mullen Jr., and I love this shirt. I’ve already spent 26 years of my life to obsessing over him so it is not like it was something I did on a whim. I’m thinking a smaller version between my shoulder blades just below my neck.

Scorpio shirt back 2!!!

The best look yet posted at the @U2 forums - who are also on the hunt!

Although now that I take another look I think “yikes – that’s a lot of little sections. Ouch.”

BREAKING NEWS: The fabulous Bridget at Edun emailed me back! She thanked me (twice) for the feedback and said she will pass on my request to the “CEO and design team” (does this mean Ali Hewson? Am I one degree from Mrs. Bono?) Since Edun does not own the design she is not sure if they can do it but “If we are able to produce them I will let you know.”

So what you guys need to do is back me up if the shirt does get made – and BUY IT!

If this comes through – I am SO making a shirt in honor of Bridget.

  5. Hi imaginarymen.

    I WANT HIS BEAUTIFUL T-SHIRT !!! 😉

    • Hi Matt, thanks for those links. I’ve been so behind in my U2 tour news so I appreciate getting a look at Larry’s latest shirts. I don’t know WHY they won’t just sell some of the designs at the show, they’d make loads of money (hey it could go for charity!) If I ever figure out how to craft one – I’ll let you know 😉

  6. what´s up? are the shirts on sale now?
    or did yo surrender?

    hope the first one….

  7. Wow, much love goes out to you and your determination. I will be first… or shall i say respectfully second in line behind you of course to buy one! i don’t care where in the world they are sold or how much. it will be mine! thanks again

    • Shane – I’m still hopeful! I plan on contacting Edun again to see if there is any news. And to tell them that almost six months later people are STILL looking for this shirt!

      • well if nothing else i’ll get lots of pictures of the shirt as they roll through my town for the concert in june. but ya i love that shirt so much, who thought it would be this hard

  8. please contact me if anyone knows how to get any of Larrys 360 shirts!

    • Mike K: I’m gonna bug Edun again and see what’s up. There’s such demand it is crazy for them not to sell them!

  12. Count me in for the scorpion shirt, But I would want one with the wings as well!

  13. that would be quite the tattoo mmmm amy with a tattoo???well maybe.

  14. i’d buy 10 – does that help????

  15. “If we are able to produce them I will let you know.”

    Remind Edun that it’s the most wonderful time of the year 😉

  16. Are you sure you posted that pic to show the incredible detail on the shirt…. or to show off Larry’s incredible ass? ; )

  17. That’s great! Thanks so much for checking! Keep us posted. My husband is a scorpio and loved Larry’s shirt, so I’ve been on the hunt, too. I would definitely purchase it if it were for sale. Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks Donna! I am so excited. I really hope this happens! I think to thank me for all the money they’re going to make, Larry should GIVE me his ;-p
