I heard nothing for a while, but then I got the following email on Boxing Day (26th December);
"Just wanted to thank you for my t-shirt. Got a parcel from my agent
just before Christmas and wondered why someone had sent me a VHS. Of
course on further inspection, I discovered the rather ingenious
packaging concept contained a very cool surprise. Checked out the site
too. Love the Fried Gold Recruitment Farm.
Thanks again Alex,
..and after a cheeky request regarding a possible 'Paul' design I had this response;
"No probs Alex. Perhaps we can liase re: a Paul t-shirt closer to
release. There are some pretty cool angles we could come at it from though. More news, as it's leaked. In the meantime, happy New Year. You have my email. Let's stay in touch.
What a legend, I have nothing further to say!...cos I'm pretty speechless!

Many thanks to Alison for the fantastic write up.
Giveaway: Unique Movie Inspired Shirts From Dark Bunny TeesAlex Chenery has effectively solved that problem by starting his own unique movie inspired t-shirt company, Dark Bunny Tees. Even though he just set up shop in October, Alex has had a huge response to his work and it’s easy to see why.
“I’m trying to be a little different than all the rest, using my skills as a freelance illustrator to create some ‘movie-spoof art’ rather than stick a familiar logo or simply designed parody on a shirt,” Alex explained. Mission accomplished Sir. His creative designs are reminiscent of some of the great old exploitation illustrations, combined with a nifty vintage tin sign feel. The result is unexpected, imaginative and full of win. Each design is filled with enough in-jokes to please the biggest horror fan but doesn’t look like your typical fare. Take note–Alex is a one-man band and all of his shirts are limited editions (100 designs max worldwide), which guarantees you’re getting a one of a kind work of art. He’s considering reducing his line to a 20 print run so the sooner you order the better. One more reason to order from Dark Bunny Tees is the ridiculously cool packaging–each t-shirt is shipped in its own A4 old skool video box with its own cover sleeve design. I think I just melted. What more do you people need?! Order one of these bad boys here! (Ladies, they come in girly tees if you’re worried about a proper fit) While you’re at it, show the man some love on Twitter.

"I love lamp"
Cannot explain how much I love this movie! Will Ferrell at his finest in my opinion. I just had to do an Anchorman homage.
Now, before you start, Sex Panther was the most obvious and not a very new thing to put on a t-shirt. However, I don't care - It had to be done!...Oh, and I have looked about and the other Sex Panther t-shirts are not a patch on this...again, in my opinion!
I have gone totally 70's with the design on this, with it's cool colours and spacey coloured circles (I think I was thinking of the trippy love scene - you know, the one with the rainbow and the unicorn?!?) I have also taken inspiration from the 'Team Jump' and then thought I'd give them a cheeky reason as to why they are all jumping for joy - Because they used the Sex Panther Cologne last night! - And as a little side-joke, I gave Brick a lamp! Still getting lucky, right?
C'mon - Musk-up with this Sex Panther t-shirt.This movie t-shirt comes in Vintage Red.
Remember - Only 100 are being printed Worldwide
Get the Anchorman: Sex Panther t-shirt here
"I think we've got some hoon trouble... "
The fourth in the series is currently in production, minus old Mel, but the Mad Max movies are serious cult classics.
This is my homage to them, the Mad Max escort service. Depicting Max as a means of travelling the future Aussie roads without risking the likes of Toecutter or Lord Humungus.
On here you have detailed representations of Max's 'Last of the V8s' and standard Interceptor models. The centre of the design holds the badge of the Main Force Patrol, whilst the 'A' in 'Max' is represented by the iconic man himself (and his dog) Also if you look close, Max's radio contact frequency is also his MFP badge number.
A t-shirt for the real Max fans and a must for all those loving the rawness of the movies!This movie t-shirt come in Vintage Grey with a worn out distressed look
Remember - Only 100 being printed World wide!

Two New Tees At Dark Bunny
November 12, 2009
DarkBunnyTees.com have just produced a couple of new tees for their spoof movie collection of shirts. As always incredibly well illustrated this time Dark Bunny’s evil gaze has focused on perhaps one of my all-time favourite classic horror films, the original 1978 version of Dawn Of The Dead by the zombie killing hero of a director George A. Romero and Boogie Nights, which admittedly he has sidetracked the main story and it’s infamous giant appendage belonging to the ‘adult entertainment’ star Dirk Diggler and instead safely drawn your attention to John C. Reilly’s role as Reed Rothchild and his role in this sexy romp.
Let’s take a look at the tees…
Featuring ‘Gunner’s Den’ - the sports and leisure store at the Monroeville Mall - a mall I would say surely takes the lead role in the classic Dawn of the Dead movie. Lovely dig at middle America, gun-toting family sporting their firearms in the name of freedom. Who can blame them, they want to keep their brains, that’s understandable. Get this tee for £25 in sizes S to XXL (free shipping in the UK) here.
Don’t expect anything explicit here, Dark Bunny has tread the waters carefully to produce a tee spoofing the classic 1997 movie Boogie Nights. As mentioned it features the character Reed Rothchild and his quite simply awful magic show, still a great design all the same. Get yours for for £25 in sizes S to XXL (free shipping in the UK) here.

Customer feedback on a Dark Bunny Tees t-shirt - This guy is such a fan of Back to the Future he even has a custom BTTF DeLorean which he has kindly offered me for a possible promotion - Bro, possible photo session when you next come down!Dark Bunny Tees Back to the Future movie t shirt
"Just to let you know I received my Dark Bunny ‘Back To The Future’ tee the other day and it’s amazing, thank you!!!
I was really blown away by the attention to detail paid to the product, from the old skool VHS case packaging right down to the movie ticket stub clothes tag! As for the Tee itself - just awesome! I love the design and the retro feel to it, done with style without bordering on nerdy! The product as a whole just oozes quality. Really great job my friend! :o)"
He owns a DeLorean with a Flux Capacitor - You can't get much more of an critic than that!
Ok, ok, so it's not Johnny Depp or even Simon Pegg, but come on - This guy is the real voice of Super Mario Charles Martinet! To me, that guy has talked me through many glorious gaming hours!
However, I didn't get to meet him, instead one of my customers (who runs gaming website and podcasts at Gamesweasel.com) and in turn one of my Dark Bunny Tees movie t shirts did!

My brother James just put a photo on facebook of a new projector he got - luckily for me in the photo he was projecting onto the wall of his front room was the Dark Bunny Tees website (whilst striking a complete nerk pose in front of it.
Anyway, I noticed that the site was all out of whack - Why? Cos I have a wide screen monitor set to a ridiculously high res and was not taking into account those that use the pretty standard 1024 x 768 res!
Here's the photo!

I’m having one of those Donnie Darko moments, if you don’t know what I’m talking about then watch it! If there’s one movie Dark Bunny tees should be reinventing it should be that one, it’d be a great piece of brand alignment. Anyway I love the attitude exuding from this one man brand designed, managed and marketed by freelance illustrator Alex Chenery. Dark Bunny offers a parallel insight into the movie world, and though movie spoof tees are a rapidly growing market, I’ve even reviewed a few in my time at Buy Tees, I’m still convinced that:-
1. There’s plenty more room in the market.
2. Alex definitely has the graphic talent to conquer it if he focuses on building both the collection and brand recognition on the net.
Although his graphic expertise exudes from every pore I do feel the site navigation leaves a lot to desire, but that being a mere technicality I only have praise for Dark Bunny. Artistically these are the best movie tees I have seen in a long old while, I love the distressed effect which really gives the prints a vintage-feel, although I’d pull back from treating every design the same way. The fact is there are those who will love it and those that will hate it, so it’s a gamble, but I admire Alex’s gutsy decision nevertheless.
Asides the beautifully sharp and crisp illustrations there are some nice puns and for once a new label offers a “back story” on each tee, I’ve reviewed sites that don’t even offer a brief description of their t-shirts, bar the usual size, colour and price, so that’s a definite ace in Dark Bunny’s hand. I can appreciate why Alex has used Flash to present the tees and detailed close-ups, but how about a Flickr page to help promote the art, and whilst we’re at it, a Twitter page and blog wouldn’t go amiss. Building a following in a competitive market like this means you have to put yourself out there, the customers will only come if they know where you are.
Check out these tees, there are only five available right now, but I’m sure there will be plenty more to come, hop over to the dark side of movie merchandise with the Dark Bunny!
Jurassic Park Tee
DB’s Jurassic Park tee is awesome, J.A Hammonds has branched out and opened his own pet store, you can now buy a 12″ high T-Rex for just £199 plus a free box of mice. Beautifully macabre, horrifyingly amusing, great concept, great illustration, in fact it’s so good here are a few more close ups.
Get this tee for £25 (UK) and £30.95 (International) including shipping in sizes S to XL. Currently only available for pre-order, they should be available by November-December 2009.
Back To The Future Tee
Loving the composition here, great spoof of BTTF, probably one of the most popular time travel movies ever made, and there slap bang in the middle of this tee is the flux capacitor. I’m a time travel nut, if there was such thing I’d be off in a jot, although as Red Dwarf has pointed out most clearly, you need to travel both time and space to actually achieve anything close to an adventure. Still I managed to catch the original Time Machine movie yet again today, the rather camp version starring Rod Taylor (one of my least favourite actors in history), the machine is the star of that film. I’ve even seen full scale models of it for sale in the USA, unfortunately they don’t work. Still, you’d think the boffins would’ve invented a hover board by now, at the very least. Get DB’s Back to the Future tee for in denim blue for £25 (UK) and £30.95 (International) including shipping in sizes S to XL.
The Ring Tee
Asian horror is fierce and not just Japanese, but Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, if you haven’t seen the original of The Ring, go and watch it, yes subtitles are a bore but damn Hollywood screws up everything of this genre, I don’t need celebrities and cgi, just freaky story lines, spooky filming and great acting, and this movie has that. This t-shirt is appropriately created to the same high standards, featuring perhaps the most iconic scene in the film where a dead girl crawls through the TV, I can hear the bones clicking already. A very nice pun too, if there’s one place you shouldn’t rent a video it’s at Sadako’s. Does anyone still rent videos anyway? Who knows, I’m sure someone’s managed to transfer it to DVD by now. Here’s a great idea for a decent sequel if any movie biz types are reading this, how about “Dead Tube”?. You know, the same plot as Ringu (The Ring) but broadcast on the net, I suppose it would have to be filmed on a grand scale, but it’d work. Ten thousand people doing a ‘Thriller’ walk across Tokyo, should do nicely. Anyway, back to reality, get The Ring tee for £25 (UK) and £30.95 (International) including shipping in sizes S to XL in Vintage Red.
A Nightmare On Elm St. Tee
To celebrate the remake (fingers crossed it’s any good) of Nightmare on Elm Street in 2010, Dark Bunny is offering up this beauty for pre-order on a limited run for November-December. Love the realty idea, the graphics are superb too, but maybe, just maybe this one could have lived without the crackleture effect. Still that’s just my personal taste. Beautifully drawn, as you’d expect from Dark Bunny, this tee is available in vintage red sizes S to XL. Currently only available for pre-order, the Nightmare on Elm St. tee should be available by November-December 2009 on an initial limited print run.
Check out the final tee featuring Tommy DeVito’s comedy club, a spoof on the Scorcese classic Goodfellas here. Perhaps the makings of one of the finest movie spoof t-shirt labels on the net, see more details of all the tees at www.DarkBunnyTees.com

The remake (new ideas please hollywood!) is out in April 2010, so in honour of the original movie, which made Freddy Krueger the reall stuff of nightmares, here's my take on a Nightmare on Elm Street. Pitching Krueger as a real estate agent on Elm Street, he'll turn your dreams into reality. You've got the iconic red and green stripes, the infamous 1428 Elm street house, a skipping girl, a fedora and if you look closely you can spot a cool Freddy face in the bark of the tee. Oh and you've even got the 'Freddy Dance' as part of the logo!

"It's not of this world. It's Sadako's fury. And she's put a curse on us"
The Japanese really know how to make a horror film and Ringu has given us one of the creepiest movie monsters ever. So what's the worst business venture Sadako could set up? How about a video rental and delivery service? Using perhaps one of the most iconic scenes in horror movie history, this movie t shirt depicts Sadako delivering her ghoulish video right into your living room. Make sure you bring it back within 7 days and copying is strictly a no-no!

"But, John. If the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists"
John Hammond's plan to make a dinosaur theme park went a little bit wrong, but what if he decided to re-scale his little genetic wonders and sell them as pets? It's still a step up from his flea circus days! That is what inspired this prehistoric movie t shirt. Children looking on with glee as they feed their new pet t-rex some tasty mice. Not quite as cuddley as a puppy or kitten though!

"You're a pistol, you're really funny. You're really funny......"
So you think Tommy's funny? Funny how? Funny like a clown? He's here to amuse you? Well imagine if Tommy ran his own comedy club where it is open mic every night. If you don't make him laugh you could literally die on stage. This movie t shirt is obviously inspired by that classic scene in the Bamboo lounge (the address of which is on this design) and the imagery is influenced by the 'Spider' shooting scene.
