With the success of Meghan Jenkins’ weekly comedy/improv/talk-show/singalong YouTube show, The The Ding Wrong Show, came the demand for swag, for merch, for articles of clothing and items that fans could purchase and wear to display their devotion.
A couple months ago, TTDWS opened an online store to meet this need as it grows: THE THE DING WRONG SHOW STORE. Meghan and Panda have regularly added designs and new products ever since. New this week is a face mask that features the iconic “Silence Please” sign one can see on the set of TTDWS:
The mask is reusable, 100% cotton, and comes with the endorsement of Panda: “I wear this mask.” For those who are tired of the plain, light blue, disposable masks or feel that you want to wear a stylish mask that communicates thoughts that you might not speak out loud, this mask is the one for you. It is available for $9.99 and orders will start to be shipped from the manufacturer on December 17.
“You told them that I designed it, right, Mark?”
“I even used a ruler! Do you know how to do that? They said I had to make masks for human faces, which are smaller than panda ones, so I scrunched my eyes and smished my face down to a frown, took out the ruler, ruled those measurements, and sent them off to Bonfire. And then Meghan measured her human face and sent those, so not all of the facemasks are Panda-sized. Mine is going to be, though.”
“Thank you for that superfluous clarification, Panda.”
Also available in the TTDWS Store are crewneck sweatshirts that feature Panda’s ink portrait drawn by Meghan herself and available in five colors, a range of sizes, and only for $35.99. It is a 50% cotton/50% poly blend of materials. And here you can see it modelled:
And the most popular garment so far is the 100% cotton TTDWS t-shirt, which features Meghan’s hand-designed and -lettered logo for The The Ding Wrong Show and is available in four colors and a full range of sizes. Here is the forest green edition of the t-shirt as modelled by the author of this article (he looks like he wants you to see the back of his phonecase, but he is really proud of the t-shirt):
All of these items are limited editions, but they are available right now at our Bonfire store.
