You can now buy OVO inspired Norm Kelly t-shirts
Norm Kelly might not be the 6 God, but he's still a hometown hero in his own right. And now you can show off your #6Dad love thanks to a pair of t-shirts currently for sale online.
Torontonians Andrew Yeung and Tania De Gasperis put their #6Dad shirts on Tilt, a crowd-funding site of sorts. Yeung came up with the artwork idea and De Gasperis is in charge of social media. Both of their designs are based on Drake's OVO clothing line.
"My friends and I are big fans of Norm Kelly and Drake for putting Toronto on the map," says Yeung via email. "And we're proud to be from here." He and his friends set up a Norm Kelly fan page before deciding to sell their shirts.
Kelly, being a prolific tweeter, blasted out the tees to his followers on October 12. So far, he's gotten more than 5,000 retweets and close to 10,000 favourites. Yeung and De Gasperis, on the other hand, haven't done much publicity yet.
Each shirt costs $25 and features either a Norm Owl or #6Dad design silk-screened onto a white American Apparel tee. Yeung says 20 per cent of their profit will go to the Covenant House Toronto. And as a funding platform, Tilt won't charge anyone until at least 50 people buy-in -- only then will the project get off the ground.
