Win an Android and Me limited edition Exploded Andy tee

Last week this shirt made the rounds on a lot of the Android blogs. And rightfully so, it was one of the most awesome Android tees to date. Notice how I said was, because today we are announcing the limited edition Android and Me version of the popular Exploded Andy tee by artist Garry Booth. The new tee is available now for $19, or you can try to win one below…

A few weeks back, a contact from a design forum I frequent sent me a message asking if I thought it would be a good idea to explode the Android logo or if I had any input to share. While the whole of my input was Uhhhh, yes?!, I did get a sneak peek or two at the art in progress, which I’ve been given permission to share with you guys today.

Android and Me limited edition

The Android and Me edition is limited to 99 shirts, 10 of which we’ll be giving away this week in a contest on Twitter. The design features the Android and Me logo and a special colorway (outline only) not available in the run of the original shirt.


We need to know why Andy exploded. To win, simply tweet an explanation with the hashtag #andyexploded or #explodedandy (depending on your sentence structure). For example, you could say:

I think #andyexploded because he ate too many apples.


I think a well-tossed grenade #explodedandy all over my shirt.

Make sure you include a link to either this post (http://bit.ly/csIUPe), the limited edition tee page, or the original tee page (whichever you prefer) so people know what you are talking about. Also, try to be funnier than my terrible examples.

Five winners will be picked on the spot based on the merit and hilariousness of the tweet. Not very clever? Have no fear, because just like in tee-ball, five people will be rewarded just for trying. We’ll announce all the winners this Thursday afternoon, and all the shirts will start shipping this Friday.

Recap (for the skimmers): Tweet the hashtag #andyexploded or #explodedandy and a link ( http://bit.ly/csIUPe or the tee site).

Deadline to enter: Thursday @ 12pm EST

According to TechCrunch, the Android fanboy has arrived. If you’re an Android fanboy to the point of wearing it on a shirt, I figure you might as well show them which site pushed you over the edge.

If you can’t wait to win it, you can always buy the tee now for $19 at andylimited.com.

If you want to tweet now, here is a link to Twitter with the hashtags and URL prefilled.
