This Group Is Dedicated To Cringeworthy T-Shirts From Facebook Ads, Here Are 68 Of The Worst
Isn’t it cool when you see an online advert with exactly what you’re looking for? It feels like a product was made just for you, or least, marketed directly to you. It could be something that you’re after: maybe a new jacket or a pair of sneakers.
Once in a while, you might see an advert for a product that has been tailored very specifically to someone. Not necessarily you or a general crowd, just... someone.
Here’s where r/TargetedShirts comes into the picture. Users have shared their screenshots and IRL encounters of t-shirts with oddly-specific slogans. Perhaps you’re born in April, like caramel frappucino’s and have an anger problem—well, there’s a t-shirt targeted at you for that.
And the slogans on the t-shirts carry a similar theme throughout: they’re often crass, confrontational and in-your-face. The idea is encapsulated perfectly in the self referential parody t-shirt: “Weirdly specific shirt that mentions my birth month and is vaguely threatening for no reason”.
Here’s our favorite picks for the weirdest, cringiest t-shirts that have been made in mind for, well, someone that wants them.
