CNN is doing something odd. Some of their headlines on their home page have a little t-shirt icon. Click it, and you get an ordering screen where you can order a t-shirt with that headline on it, as pictured above.
While…interesting, doesn’t this run the risk that editors will write headlines to be as “t-shirt marketable” as possible? And while this is vaguely interesting at first glance, won’t this get old quick? I mean, it’s kind of a one-trick pony, right?
“Hey, look at that dude with a headline on his shirt!! That’s crazy!!” I don’t know if it holds the same humor on the 20th viewing.
