Before and After
Music fans who took souvenir T-shirts from a rock festival in Gera, eastern Germany, have discovered they hold a secret message.
The so-called Trojan T-shirts bore a design of a skull and right-wing flags and the words “hardcore rebels”. But, once washed, the design dissolves to reveal a message telling people to break with extremism.
Some 250 T-shirts were donated to organisers, who handed them out at the nationalist rock festival in Gera.
The stunt was organised by a left-wing group called Exit, which seeks to reduce the influence of the right-wing in Germany.
“What your T-shirt can do, so can you – we’ll help you break with right-wing extremism,” the message reads, and provides a contact number for the group.
On its website, Exit said it had made contact with the organisers of the Rock For Germany festival, in its ninth year, using a false name and had offered the T-shirts for free.
Har! I wouldn’t be such a nice guy. I’d probably add a message about the wearer being a fool.
Of course, this all requires proto-fascists who wash their clothing – and themselves.
