Ryan tweeted that during the madness. I know i want a shirt to commemorate this awesome and heartwarming event, and i know that we have some pretty creative people in this community, so i thought maybe we use a thread to brainstorm. I was thinking of a design that was almost patriotic, akin to something a presidential candidate would use. Possibly something with his face and a quote under it?

Witness the inception of Team Brad here:

Something like his face at 3:54 on this video with the tag "the face of a hero"? I don't know, just spit balling. Let's make this happen.

Here are a few starting points: Ryan seems to be into the idea of a picture of Earth and the tag #TeamBrad wrapping around it and Eric Pope seems to be into this picture and it's getting around Twitter, maybe someone can spruce it up?

No Caption Provided

image/design credit to ? (that's what his Twitter handle is at least)

Also, i feel like i should mention, i have no photoshop skills so i'm just kind of here trying to get something started.

UPDATE! Sept 15th

Hey all! Figured i keep this top post updated with a few of the ideas posted in this thread.

I was thinking of adding some guidelines for the shirt. I think the_Nubster said it best, the phrase Mile High Club has a different meaning to the world and shouldn't be the focus of the shirt. The hashtag #TeamBrad should be on the shirt, but it doesn't have to be predominate factor of the design. It can be located on the back of the shirt, on the sleeve or whatever. Yes, we can have a solid color shirt with the hashtag in bold print, but anyone can design that and it would defeat the purpose of the thread. I'm not saying that it shouldn't be on the front, but i'm just saying it shouldn't takeover the design.

Here's another idea that Mr. Ryan Davis seems to be interested in: https://twitter.com/Red_Stalker/status/246850472227516416

THIS IS FUCKING GREAT GUYS.

UPDATE!! SEPT 16TH

New and/or updated shirt designs, and i totally feel like this is getting somewhere. Just a reminder to everyone making a shirt, the quote is actually "Tango down in SECTION One Alpha" and not "Tango down in SECTOR One Alpha". I believe that's what it says in the captions. Anyway...

UPDATE!!! SEPT 18TH

We're getting closer and closer to having a shirt designed as Ryan mentioned on this week's I Love Mondays, they're going to have a Team Brad shirt made soon, possibly to take advantage of the hype (TEAM BRAD WILL NEVER DIE THOUGH). Here's another batch of designs, hopefully we'll hear something about the shirt by the end of the week, but who knows!?

I believe RD retweeted one of Maajin's design, so maaayyybe that's the one? I have no idea, all i hope is that one of the designs in this thread is picked, because most of them are pretty rad.

On the front 'If you believe in one thing, believe in Brad'

Then on the back 'Team Brad'

Probably too much for a shirt. Maybe a bumper sticker or something. Or I'll get it tattooed on my forehead.

Team Brad hashtag on the front (maybe with a drawing of Brad and Pope hugging), and "Tango down" in the back. Maybe a tiny GB logo on the sleeve or something, but that might be too much.

I dunno. "Always bet on Brad" on the back, then under that, #teamBrad and then front, maybe "Mile High Club".

Whatever it is, lets do it! I have been waiting for this sweet sweet moment. Been with you since you started doing these Brad, and I think it was just as great for me as it was for you.

The twitter tag team brad written multiple times in multiple font sizes forming the continents of the world, while the circle encapsuling them is one of the colors of the orbs from Insanely Twisted, with the cthulhu arms all across the left (body right) side of the shirt.

I'm having a tough time coming up with Team Brad shirt ideas but I came up with the perfect Team Ryan shirt. I'm thinking it would be a bright orange t-shirt, made of coarser fabric that's thicker than average, with a series of numbers and letters over the right breast pocket.

Basically I'm thinking it would look identical to whatever shirt they make child molesters wear in prison.

The A-Team with Brad as Peppard and the giantbombers around him as the others.  Like this one:

Why not switch it up and do jersey's instead? Or hell, in addition to shirts. Mix it up a little. Obviously, I assume they'd be more expensive, but I'd wager there's enough people that would buy them to make printing them in the first place worth it.

Ideas of "Mile High Club" and hashtag bullshit need to go immediately. That shit is dumb and would make for a design most normal people would be ashamed to wear in public.

#22 Posted by RE_Player1 (8005 posts) -

@Peanut: I agree although I do think Team Brad has to be on the shirt either being the main focus or accompanied by a picture relating to Brad or Brad himself. I would want a little more complexity when compared to the China Don't Care or Fuck Ryan Davis shirts, even though I did buy both of those, but still simple.

I think the Tag should be on the shirt, but not predominately placed. Possible on the back under the GiantBomb logo? or on a sleeve? I am all for throwing away the phrase Mile High Club.

I had an idea where it's the generic men's bathroom sign guy, but then there's another stick figure sprinting past him with a knife, slashing his throat, with an arc of blood following the knife.

Sort of like this, but not as shitty.

I think you can have Team Brad on it without it being a hash tag.

Personally, I think a stylized version of Brad's happy face (from above) would work just fine. Something along the lines of that old classic Gamespot shirt. Put Team Brad on that, or something like "Unbreakable!" and then maybe Team Brad on the back.

Even though there's not a chance in Hell this will make it into the final design it can always be incorporated into the Team Black Guy With A Sparkler t shirts.

Riffing on this one a little bit, I'd kinda like the idea of a shirt where we see the parachute (like just the strings and the chute and the shirt itself is sky blue or something), and on the parachute is written "Mile High Club 2012" or something like that and the chute itself and then #teambrad on the back. I'd wear that.

Sorta like this:

But, you know... not shitty.

Or instead of Mile High Club it could be Achievement unlocked. I guess. But overall, when it comes to shirts, in my opinion, the simpler the better. I don't like shirts with a lot of detailed shit all over them.

If you can't wear a fucking shirt in public because "people won't get it" than what the fuck are you doing, Who the fuck cares? Most, if not all, of the shirts Giantbomb sell won't make sense to normal people.

I want something dumb from just about any t-shirt sold by Giantbomb.

Here's why!

- There's a team.

- There's Brad.

- People are in poses that should be immortalized. Even if it's just Brad.

- It would spread cheer to all that see it.
