As you know, MFS is fascinated with the Cat 3 condition slash phenomenon slash lifestyle. That’s why we invented #cat34lyf and AACK and Knife Fights. And that’s why we started following @cat3memes on instagram. What started as feed-based curiosity blossomed into a conversation which blossomed into a correspondence which blossomed into this collaboration. Wait, back up. Collaboration is a bit of a misnomer. We basically just called the Cat 3 Memes dude up one day—like I mentioned, we’d been texting at this point anyway—and said, “Hey dude, you should put these works of art on a t-shirt.” And he was like, “No way that’s stupid who would buy them?” And I was like, “Ummmm, I would, I think?” And he was like, “Yeah but what would they look like?” And I was like, “Dude, they’d look like they look like in the internet. Verbatim, basically.” And he was like, “Ahhhhhhhh okay yeah let’s do it.” So we did it. It took a minute because printing images on a teeshirt is a bit of a thing. There are options and, as you might expect, there are pluses and minuses associated with each. In the end we chose this method become the medium most accurately reflects the message. It’s got a fancy name but it’s basically just an Advanced Iron On. Bottomline this is art. These are (important) conversation starters. Should we have made mugs? Yes. Will we make mugs next time? Maybe. Will there be a next time? While in some ways only you, the reader and consumer of Cat 3 cultural artifacts, can answer that, let me interject and say yes, there will most certainly be a “next time.”
That said, if you love these memes in P-A-R-T-I-C-U-L-A-R, BUY NOW because these are limited AF.
