It's nearly twelve months to the day that we posted the BlackBerry loving Ping Me Baby! BBM Theme Song here on the CrackBerry blogs. The song went on to get a lot of play, even getting the song's mastermind Riz up on stage to perform it live at BlackBerry DevCon 2010.

A year later, Riz is back at it with a new BBM-related endeavor. This time it's not a song, but a new initiative surrounding t-shirts. He's launched BBMShirts.com where you can easily order up a t-shirt with your own BBM barcode on it. You can check out video above to get a good overview of what it's all about. I just ordered up two for myself - pretty stoked to wear them around (gotta mix it up with the RIMPIRE Strikes Back and #1 BlackBerry Fanboy shirts). I sure hope to see a lot of BBM Barcodes on T-Shirts out in public. I'll definitely be scanning any I see. Be warned ladies... :)

First.

Cool idea. But I wouldn't wear that. LOL

jjetson

saying "First" on the first forum post is exponentially worse than wearing a BBM Shirt.

I wonder how well the scanning process would be on a non-flat (curvy) surface...

Especially true for Bella, damn girl!

Sucks if you switch BB's, lol steep price.

Hey take a picture of my chest!

ryanlrobinson

Yeah, this has just provided a lot of men a lot of excuses to stare at and take photos of women's chests.

chiefbroski

LOL.... +1.

But hey, we take what we can get!

Marc_Paradise

The mistake you made lies in assuming that any female of the species would wear one of these.

oldtimeBBaddict

Yeah, I'll wear one of these. It should go well with my Vulcan ears.

"Only" $19.99 :p I like the idea, but not the price. I'll print my own, thanks.

c0rinne

Do you get lifetime replacements for new blackberrys? Otherwise, I'll pass.

People are so funny! They think $20.00 is too much for a one off custom printed Tee Shirt!
Hilarious!
This shirt should be $30.00 or more!

I think it's a cool idea. Wear it at a bar, a gentlemen's club, or a job fair or a networking meeting.

I think it's a great idea and the price is very reasonable. We buy t-shirts printed with someone else graphic all the time like Ed-Hardy or Nike for much more. At least this shirt is about me and customized to my Pin. I've already ordered one. Another great post @Crackberry!!

Dinodeal

Just ordered the xl in black. Cant wait!

El Platanero

hahahahah, when NFC kicks in everybody will be tapping their phones together and these shirts will be obsolete, hahahahahahahajaj

ignites

actually they'll be tapping their phones on other ppl's chest....... LOL

How about a RIMPIRE shirt with the barcode?

orangepit

So if I come up to a good looking chick with a QR code on her t-shirt, I wouldn't be out of place if I asked if I could scan her chest?

Denny_Crane

This is so nerdy, but I love it! I just ordered mine!

deathwalkr

RIM India did this for free!

And you could choose from a variety of stuff like keychains, mugs and of course T-Shirts.

Just had to register with full address and of course your BB details and voila in 2 weeks i got me a BB Bar Code T-Shirt!

The promo was called "Flaunt your BB" or something

jussimple

This is a cool concept. Nerdy as it is, it's screems of stand out in the crowd type personnalities. I love it. Going to order a couple today. The only issue I see is if you or someones says "No". The Scanner doesn't have a flash and doesn't make a sound. This could lead to some ramdom adds but maybe that's part of the fun. Wouldn't mind a "Rimpire" barcode shirt though. I'm a "bin there, done that, and got the T-shirt" kind of guy."

ritesh

I got my T shirt from flauntyourbbm.com for free. Unfortunately, I sold that phone :-(

Will order a keychain,since thats the cheapest thing :-)

I've got a shirt with WHEN IS THIS BIG UPDATE COMING FOR PLAYBOOK ?
THE END OF NEVER LOL

nickbettschen

I just ordered mine Male/Black/S saying BBM me cant wait to wear it to the bar or out to a house party :-)

Wazzy9

Is it just me or Steve is gay?

UnknownError507

I might think so, cause i notice that to he only get scanned by guys :)
Or the pp who put this animation together dint thought about it.
If im gonna see a chick with one of this T-Shirts i definitely gonna scan their Bo*@s(Barcode).

Cb3540

It's funny that the only thing you take away from such a brilliantly executed 'How-To' video is whether an animated fictional character was Gay or not. And if he was Gay, is there anything wrong with that? Gay guys do use Blackberry too you know.

ladeberry

yeah got this free in India, a flauntyourrbbm shirt with d QR as the shirt badge ... turned alot of heads

chuckmaster

Cool idea. My company (Mr. Creativitee - www.mrcreativitee.com) offers custom QR Code tees for just a fraction of the cost ($12.99) and you can have anything you want coded to pop up when scanned. Websites, a certain message, business card information, etc.
