This Metal Band Apologized For Releasing A Shirt with A Big Dick On It
Wellington, New Zealand-based Dark Divinity were just trying to create a new shirt – and it ended up being the most publicity the band ever received. The shirt features typical metal tropes – a hooded priest, crows, skulls, some tentacles – but I guess the artist spent a little too much time on the details.
Maybe he should have zoomed out on his illustration, because then he would notice it looked like a big ole dirty dick:
Once Dark Divinity were alerted of this mishap, they offering this pun-filled apology on their Facebook page:
“So it has been brought to our attention that our t-shirt artwork may or may not resemble male genitalia. This was a genuine cock-up, no member had noticed the resemblance previously and we can assure you that we weren’t trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes or jerk people around. If anyone who ordered a shirt feels shafted, we are offering full refunds, so rest assured you will be endowed with your hard earned money once again.”
Congrats, fellas. Your SEO just shot up huge (good news) but it's all about dicks (not good news.)
Here's what the band sounds like:
