Not a Father’s Day Website

The writers of How I Met Your Mother have done it with notafathersday.com. Barney(Neil Patrick Harris) was excellent in the episode “Not a Father’s Day” (it reminded me a lot of Scrubs, when Jordon told Dr. Cox that she was not pregnant and he went running through the streets screaming with excitement). The Who’s Not Your Daddy shirt’s and other merchandise was priceless. And the cheerleader effect was well thought out and so very true… I’m still pretty confused about the actually date we need to celebrate, is it November 10th?

Still… it’s an excellent use of off t.v. show marketing, you gotta love when shows do that. Check out the site, notafathersday.com; buy a who’s NOT Your Daddy shirt; or just re-watch the show..quite legendary. To encourage you to visit the site here is my favorite not a father’s day postcard from there:

Who’s Not Your Daddy

Who loves t-shirts? They happen to be a favorite hobby of mine.

Another thing I love are t-shirts I see on TV. Call it an affliction or some sort of weird people I will never meet form of peer pressure…hell, call it weak sales pitch resistance. One of my favorite shirts (that I can’t find an exact replica of) come from Scrubs. It’s the “I’m what Willis was talkin’ about” that J.D. (Zach Braff)… I did find one at T-Shirt Hell (*warning: site might have objectionable content), and while it is awesome it is not quite the same.

Either way, in tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother titled, Not a Father’s Day, Lily and Marshall are considering having a baby, but Lily wants advice from Ted and Robin, first. However, she soon finds they have very different views. I haven’t seen the episode yet but I have seen the preview and it show Barney with some pretty clever “Who’s NOT your daddy” tshirts! While not the same (but pretty stinking close) you can get your own Who’s NOT your daddy shirt on Cafe Press there are several variations so check out the choices. Just another way of helping you Be Awesome Instead (of whatever you’re doing currently… sorry I always hate ending a sentence with just “Instead” so I thought I would mention the implied part)
