This vintage tee has been loved on hard over the years rendering it super thin, buttery soft, and perfectly worn-in. It's a 1980s tribute to MTV, which is known to have revolutionized music and played a huge role in pop culture and entertainment.
Music Television dates back to 1981, first hitting the air with their slogan "Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll." The channel kicked off its debut with a music video of "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles.
MTV's humble beginnings comprised of basic music videos and video jockeys. Record companies were letting them use the videos for free, and soon after the record industry realized MTV's impact in promoting artists and musicians. Lots of money began going into creating awesome videos and iconic directors, like Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze, became involved.
Many of our most celebrated celebrities and performers are thanks to MTV, who played them heavily in the 1980s. This includes the likes of Prince, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, and Madonna. In more recent times MTV has shifted gears and focuses more on reality TV. Still, its musical legacy continues to live on in the hearts of fans, epic music videos, and amazing collectibles like this vintage t-shirt.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Paper thin, distressed, super soft.
