Someone didn’t check their clefs before printing this musical t-shirt...
Music geeks have been roasting the slogan on this band t-shirt, after the designer mixed up their treble and bass clefs.
The t-shirt, which is supposed to spell out ‘BAND GEEK’ in music notation, actually spells out ‘BAND BGGK’.
A photo of the shirt was posted in the Facebook group Music Geeks, and a thread of savage comments ensued.
“Oh dear, wrong clef!” one user commented.
Another said: “Omg I don’t know what a band bggk is.... but as a band geek I pray none of my fellow geeks are dumb enough to purchase this shirt.”
“I had a very brief moment where I thought I forgot how to read music... My AP theory kids would have been really disappointed in me,” another person commented.
One user wrote: “I love how all the real band geeks come and immediately comment on the error!”
Another suggested this could be a test from a teacher: “‘Does anyone want to buy the band t-shirt this semester?’ And then, the students that bought one, he assumes are the ones who are ruining his band and can’t read music, and fails them?”
Look, we reckon it’s great to show off your love for music in what you wear, so hats off to the t-shirt makers for attempting what is, outside the music world, a pretty niche slogan.
Just maybe run it by a musician before getting any more copies printed...
