Torsopants is a sister site of the more crude T-Shirt Hell. It opened just this March, I believe. T-Shirt Hell is famous for its offensive t-shirts and I imagine the humor and imagery turned away as many people as it attracted so I surmised back in March that TorsoPants was an attempt to grab another market sector with tamer, less offensive tees. Anyway, I got an email the other day saying that it’s all over.
It is with great sadness that I announce, at the urging of Bilderberg, that I am closing the doors at TorsoPants.com at midnight December 23rd, 2008. I cannot get into complete details, but my higher masters have told me that my mission will be changing over the next few months and this is the first step in a series of movements I will make in my life to fulfill the prophecy that is Sunshine Megatron.
There seems to have been big changes in the T-Shirt Hell family recently too. I guess all is not well. As I have just mentioned, Torsopants is about to close its doors for good. I notice that BandGeekHero.com, a Torsopants spin-off focusing on Guitar Hero parodies, is also gone, with the domain redirecting to TorsoPants.com. I think it launched in July of this year. That’s a short life. And also Hell Jr. seems to have disappeared from the radar less than 3 months after its launch.
I have no idea what happened over there but if I had to guess I would say that the makers of Guitar Hero sued them for copyright infringement and they are selling off assets and streamlining their business in order to raise capital to pay. Just a wild guess though.
I don’t think TorsoPants really added anything to the t-shirt industry though and I imagine it will be quickly forgotten. The success of T-Shirt Hell will probably ensure that Torsopants won’t even remembered as a failed business idea.
Important: Also, I have been informed that any Torso Washingtons that are left unusedby December 23rd will be lost forever so if you have some you better get over there soon and don’t let them go to waste. Affiliates with Torso Pals will get paid on that date.
