SHOW ME THE MONEY!

Hello, agents.

You know, britpopbaby and I were thinking... Wouldn't it be beyond wonderful if there was an online store where you could buy Jake Gyllenhaal stuff? I mean, not just Jake Watch stuff (although there'd be some of that, too) but stuff that any Jake fan could wear? Stuff that would be so awesome and so well-designed that Jake himself would want one of everything?

That'd be cool, right?

Um, cool? Try the best idea in the history of the world! Which is why we've spent every waking hour of the past week pulling together the ULTIMATE place to buy Jake Gyllenhaal merchandise, and now present to you the


Damn fucking straight. It's fucking awesome. And I'm not just saying that because we want you to buy shit. Our profits on these things is, like, tiny. If we sell 1,00,000 t-shirts, we might be able to pay for the damage to the HQ incurred during our kidnapping situation. Maybe.

The truth of the matter is, we wouldn't pay $20 for a t-shirt, so we don't expect you to, either, even it means less towards the Official Jake Watch Bank Account (which allows us to do things like pass out free buttons at premieres where the stars don't show up).

- We want you to want to buy this stuff because you're a fan. Let the world know that any actor worthy of inspiring such a fabulous online merchandising campaign is probably the greatest celebrity who ever lived (or at the very least has the world's most amazing fans).

- Most of the stuff is general Jake Gyllenhaal merchandise and not strictly Jake Watch related. There was a gap in the world of Gyllenhaal swag, and that needed filling before we concentrated on pimping ourselves.

- There are four pages of merchandise right now so be sure to check them all. We also have tons of ideas that haven't been put down yet so be sure to check back for updates. We'll also mention it here on the blog when we have a new design available.

- Feel free to tell us what you like and what you don't like and if there's something you'd like to see. If you guys want to buy it, we'll make it for you. We're dedicated like that.

So check it out. And bookmark us: http://jakewatch.spreadshirt.com. I think you'll not be disappointed...

Fantastic idea. I have been wanting something other than the t shirt and coffee mug I already have to represent my obsession. Thanks!

ncwoman said...

AWESOME, you guys. Totally awesome.

NO problem making up my birthday/Christmas lists this year!

Thank you!! Can't wait to put in my first order!

cina said...

I love the "I see dead rabbits" tee! I could easily get one of those. :)

city girl said...

Great idea!! I would love it if you could get the t-shirts in size 2X

I'm also crazy about the Stalking buttons. I gotta get several of those.

Thanks a million!!!!

Prophecy Girl said...

We're working on sizes. Right now everything's pretty generic size-wise but we were more concerned with getting the designs done than anything else, so we'll see what we can do about that!

The stalking buttons are also available at www.cafepress.com/jakewatch. We had a problem putting everything over there because CafePress has a clause against using celebrity images, but we kept the buttons because you can buy either 1 or a pack of 10, whereas on Spreadshirt, you can only buy 5. Whichever better suits what you're looking for!

Prophecy Girl said...

OK, apparently that link doesn't work. But you can type in the address and it'll take you straight to the buttons. :)

OT: Jake Heath and Ryan Gosling all interested in the On The Rode movie that was just scripted. Them and every other young actor in HW I bet. Jake & Heath again? I wish and again this is just talk:

Dahling what a fab store you have!

BeABee said...

I must buy it all!:0

phoebe said...

OMG this is BEYOND AWESOME!!! I want to buy like everything!!

smurfette said...

hahaha, brilliant designs and products! i also love the "i see dead rabbits" catch phrase. i only wish i could see better how the actual t-shirts would look, u know? since the images are more like pictures and not photos. do you have any pics of the real shirts? like are the designs silk-screened or what? sorry, i'm 20 questions today =P

jacknastygirl said...

hey, that's fantastic

Prophecy Girl said...

Smurfette, that's as good as we can do. :/ The shirts aren't made until they're ordered, so the best they can offer us is a preview of the graphic on the shirt. If we ordered one of everything just to get the pictures, we'd never get out of debt. brits and I are poor! :D

The shirts aren't silk-screened but transferred digitally, so the images will be raised just slightly from the surface of the shirt. Does that help?

Katie said...

I'll be definitely placing an order.

Can I put in a request: I'd love a JW mug and a JW key ring or 3? Could that be possible?

britpopbaby said...

We have a mug predictament. We can do mugs on CafePress but we can't use Jake images there. We can make 'JW' mugs but not 'Jake' mugs. I think keyrings are available on CP too.

smurfette said...

yes, your description helps, PG, thanks! and i totally understand. it wouldn't make sense for you guys to order everything just for a better pic.

ok, i shall go to my corner and ponder my choices... =)

S4M985 said...

OMG SQUEEE!!!!! I cant decide!!!!

phoebe said...

^^ Me neither!! But OMG, the "I was a gay cowboy before it was cool"-one might be my favorite, it totally cracks me up! I just have to get that one!! LOL!

heddaparsons said...

You guys are so creative, what a great idea! Ilove the Variety/Jakewatch movie t-shirt and the I see Dead Rabbits from DD, decisions, decisions! I will definately be placing an order!

call me cherita said...

Can I just say that you guys fucking rock? I'm starting to develop a crush on britpop and pg that'll rival the one I have on Jake!

Katie said...

If you could do a JW mug and keyring without the forbidden Jake images, I'd certainly buy them.

An 'I'm stalking Jake' mug, like the badge, might be fun? Or just JakeWatch on it would be instantly snapped up... I need a new work mug...

Thanks for the answer, Brits.

welliwont said...

Question: Will the orders be shipped from the Old Country to the New World, or vice versa? In other words, what does shipping cost, approx?

Prophecy Girl said...

Welliwont, it's a US-based company. I believe shipping is around $5 for US orders and $10 for international (although there are options so it could be a little more or less) but I know you can go through the ordering process and get the shipping cost without actually putting in your payment information, so you can check how much you're paying before you place your order.

Katie, we can definitely do a Jake Watch mug through CafePress and I'm not sure if they have keyrings, but I know they have what they call "ornaments" which might work. We'll throw something together and let you take a look! :D We'll keep you posted!

Prophecy Girl said...

Oh, I should add that shipping, of course, depends on how much you buy. :D

call me cherita said...

The shipping on one T-shirt (I picked the navy Variety one!) was $4.99, so, yeah, $5.

veeveevee said...

Shipping was still $4.99 and I got a set of buttons and the white Variety Ad t-shirt (squeee - I wanted that on a T-shirt!)

And yes, Agent Vx3 is alive!

Real life is a bitch, sometimes. I'll be back to the forum really soon, although I admit to being apprehensive/overwhelmed at how much I must have to catch up on! ;)

Anonymous said...

I bought some 1" Team Gyllenhaal buttons! :D It's just the sort of Jake item I wanted, so thank you, guys! They'll look so unique on my bag or collar, like a campaign button -- except I'm a campaigner for life, haha. I can't wait to get them. :)

Prophecy Girl said...

Fabulous! Thanks to everyone who's already bought something/planning on buying something in the future.

Vee!! We're so glad you're back! We were starting to get worried...stupid RL. :( And the Variety shirt was made especially for you since you requested it a while ago. :)

I just put up a new post with some updates and all the graphics because we got some complaints that they were difficult to see on the site...

ncwoman said...

^^^^SQUEEEE!!!! Agent Veeveevee is alive and well!!

Whew, glad to hear from you, girlfriend! I was getting SERIOUSLY worried about you!

Look forward to you getting back on the forum....

*hugs*

OT: If these pics are recent, then Jake is back in the States, looks like L.A.

Anonymous said...

Totally off topic, BUT NOT: Celebrity mania blogspot has pictures of The Precious out jogging. He has a warm little (!) knit cap on his head and his sweat socks are pulled up infashionably high on his lovely calves and he is dressed for a chilly day, but he is definitely running somewhere in Los Angeles...as in California...as in USA!!!! I don't know if the picture was taken today or yesterday, but it indicates he's here!!!!!!!(sigh!)

Prophecy Girl said...

Actual quote from an e-mail I sent brits yesterday, discussing Jake's absence and the launch of the store:

"...watch. He'll show up tomorrow in LA or something."

Did I call it or what?! I KNEW he was going to show up when we launched the store!! Trying to steal the spotlight, as usual... :D

veeveevee said...

^^I've missed you guys, too!

And thank you, PG, for the Variety shirt - I LOVE that ad, and I can't wait to wear it! :D :D :D

veeveevee said...

P.S. Yeah...that Jake is always trying to steal our thunder! ;)

Linna said...

Ooooo!! I love it all!! Of course, I want to buy everything!!

But.. If there's anything lacking, I'd say it would be socks :-) Is there any chance of that? I'd just love me some "Team Gyllenhaal" socks!!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
