State Hopes To Harness Power Of 'Three Wolf' Shirts [NH]
WMUR ^ | January 26, 2010 | staff reporter

CONCORD, N.H. -- State economic officials are hoping to harness the power of a Keene, N.H., company's T-shirt that has gained some serious buzz on the Web.

The Three Wolf Moon T-shirt has spent nearly 200 days on Amazon.com's Top 100 list. The shirt, which depicts three wolves howling at a moon, gained cult status after a satirical review was posted claiming it had the ability to attract beautiful women, among other powers.

Similar reviews were posted, and demand for the shirt grew until printing company The Mountain had to work overtime to handle the spike. The state Division of Economic Development said Tuesday it is designating the shirt the official T-shirt of New Hampshire economic development.

"The Mountain's Three Wolf Moon is a true New Hampshire success story," said Steve Boucher of the Division of Economic Development. "What started off as a tongue-in-cheek take on a cool T-shirt has resulted in worldwide acclaim for a very creative and growing Granite State business."

The shirt has been worn by actor Rainn Wilson of "The Office" and Allan Hyde of "True Blood." It was also worn by the U.S. Marine's Bravo Company 1st Combat Engineer Battalion.

Boucher said an online campaign will be launched featuring local business officials and celebrities wearing the shirt. The Business Resource Center also plans to give Three Wolf Moon shirts to winners of its monthly "Innovation Rocks!" initiative, which recognizes the ingenuity of New Hampshire's innovation leaders.

Boucher said that regardless of the truth of the claims of mystical properties possessed by the shirt, he's optimistic about the effect it will have on New Hampshire's economy.

"If it can generate half of the results that Amazon shoppers are experiencing, we're in awesome shape," he said. "Every CEO should be wearing this shirt."

At first I thought *Cool* ... then... WTF? A promotion based on a chance promo, based on a wolf?

Where’s the ingenuity that New Englanders are known for?

I’ll bet there are three wolves in all of NH....if that.

Grasping at straws. ;(

Keene is the sinkhole of liberal progressives in N.H..
Mostly Massachusetts transplants that have invaded that part of the state.
Figures, wolves would be the attraction.

One reviewer stated he had worn the shirt for 3 weeks with no luck.

I suppose the stench may have something to do with it.

From Amazon: (lol) "I do have one complaint, and that's that I must stay

indoors on windy days. Last fall we had a windy day and I

received notice that hundreds of women were suddenly

pregnant, carrying my offspring, up to 12 miles away."

The reviews are a MUST read....plain and simple....probably some of the funniest stuff I’ve read in a long time. There are some very creative people out there.
This is cult like status in my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Dual Function Design, November 10, 2008
By B. Govern “Bee-Dot-Govern” (New Jersey, USA)
- See all my reviews

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

looks like one of those flea market cheesy black velvet canvas pictures.

Someone should make a “3 barking moonbats” shirt with Reid,Pelosi,and Franken on it.

It's working, too. I sure hope they're good capitalists at heart because it's working very well for them.
