It was Frankie Goes To Hollywood who first told us to RELAX in the turbulent 1980s. Controversial lyrics, British new wave music and overzealous censorship combined to create a pop culture phenomenon so strong that it echoes to this day with constant references to the song, the movement and the classic shirt: FRANKIE SAYS RELAX.
In 2014 it’s a new pop icon who has instructed us all to R-E-L-A-X: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
With the injury-riddled Pack off to a 1-2 start after many predicted another Superbowl berth, some Backers have reached for the panic button and called for wholesale changes. All-World quarterback Aaron Rodgers delivered a calming message to cheese-blooded worrywarts in his weekly radio show:
“Five letters here, just for everybody out there in Packer land,” Rodgers said. “R-E-L-A-X. Relax. We’re going to be OK.” There you have it folks – AARON SAYS RELAX. Show that you support the message, the team, and the QB with this nod to a classic throwback tee shirt design.
Like all National Fanthem designs, it is not an official product of any player, league, franchise or British pop band -- it's just a comical piece of unique art from our imagination; drawn by hand and rendered digitally as a lossless high-resolution vector graphic for perfect printing. It comes on cotton pre-shrunk tees in sizes small through 5XL. (Alternate brands/cuts/colors/sizes can be custom-printed for little additional cost
