Welcome to this week’s edition of “Trending Topic Tuesday,” where we share our take on what’s going on in the world and what promotional products would appropriately (or inappropriately) market the subject matter.
Held annually since 2002, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is a four day music festival that takes place on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. It features an array of musical performances that span multiple genres with past notable acts including everyone from Phish, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Kanye West to Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Stevie Wonder.
This year’s festival – the 10th annual – will be held June 9-12 so you may want to start getting in the mood now and don your tie-dye custom t-shirt from last year.
Get this year’s line-up below the fold.

On my way to work this morning, a local radio station was discussing how reality star Mike “The Situation” of MTV’s Jersey Shore has one of the highest grossing phone apps ever with GTL locations and a “Grenade Dodger” game. “The Situation” already has several other businesses in the works and he also, supposedly, has a t-shirt coming out that will have a hole in the belly so you can show off your “abs”. You may not initially think of that product being custom t-shirts, but it definitely is, it promotes the brand that he is making for himself and MTV indirectly for introducing him to the world. So if someone like “The Situation” can make himself famous with custom t-shirts, think of what it can do for your business.

In a world of Ben and Jerry’s, Coldstone Creamery, and more frozen yogurt shops than I could possibly count on one hand, what does it take to successfully sell frozen treats? Well, just take a look at Steven Carse, who is better known as Atlanta’s own “King of Pops.” Using fresh, local ingredients to create unique flavors such as Grapefruit Mint, Green Apple Lemonade, Mexican Chocolate and my personal favorite, Valencia Orange Basil, Carse has become a local legend. Other startups can take note from the King, who has an avid presence on Twitter, where he shares daily flavors with more than 2500 followers. He also promotes his handcrafted pops with custom t shirts that local readers can purchase when they visit his promotional cooler (see pictures below) at the corner of North Ave. and N. Highland.
