Newest Online Shirt Store: CNN?!

Thursday, April 24, 2008 7:53 AM

I was checking out CNN this morning when I noticed an odd icon next to some of the headlines under Latest News...

It looked like it was a...well...a t-shirt...

Intrigued, I clicked it...

I would *love* to hear the business-case conversations that led to this being added to their site! So someone was like "Hey, I bet some of our wilder, tabloid-like stories would make *great* t-shirts...and I bet people would be willing to pay $19.99 for them! Let's add it to our site."

I mean, I guess a lot of sites sell merchandise with their logos and what not, but it's an interesting way to integrate their products with what they've been known to be their bread and butter for years: the news.

I don't think they went far enough. I want coffee mugs, hats, and mouse pads. They should also come up with a CNN mascot, then they could make various sized plush dolls and sell those too. Finally, in the year 2015 I recommend "CNN Land" where you can ride all your favorite new stories from history. Imagine the Cuban Missile Crisis Roller Coaster? 4/24/2008 8:13 AM | Dave Harris
