Before Lucas went to the dark side
The most requested films for the DVD format will finally become a reality this September as Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox present the eagerly-awaited Star Wars Trilogy on DVD. The four-disc collection will be released on September 21 in the U.S. and Canada, with international release dates following closely.
If it's not enough for you that Urban Outfitters will charge you $40 for a sweatshop-made pseudo-vintage t-shirt that will be clearly recognizable as coming from Urban Outfitters, then consider this idiotic shirt they are now selling.
Then consider what Burnlab's astute Karl Zeiss posted about it:
Could it be that Urban Outfitters CEO (and Republican campaign donor) Richard Hayne wants to not-so-subtly dissuade his liberal-leaning clientelle from voting? Hmmm... The Philly Weekly ran this article last summer exposing the gap between the owner and the image. Maybe it's time for (another) boycott.
I agree totally. Boycott Urban Outfitters! And if you want to buy a t-shirt, consider instead those sold by American Apparel, a much nicer cut than the dreck sold at UO, and completely sweatshop-free!
