Our Fave 5 Promotional Products of the Week: 'Tiger King' Spoofs, Album Art Puzzles and More
Folks, sports are back! Well, the Korean Baseball Organization is airing games (albeit at 2 a.m.) and the German Bundesliga soccer league is back (at much more reasonable hours). For non-sports fans, well, we don’t really know what to tell you. But this is big for us, so we’re going to talk about it.
We’re also going to talk about some of our favorite promotional products we’ve found from around the internet over the last week. Some of them are even sports-related. Others are not. Enjoy!
1. San Antonio Spurs ‘Family Together’ T-shirt

Fans of the San Antonio Spurs don't know when their hoops heroes will return to the court, but they can still count on the ballers to prove their community connections through this Family Together T-shirt. The tee will go to the first 1,000 people who make donations to the organization's Give Together Fund, which is helping families, first responders and small businesses as they contend with COVID-19.
2. Seattle Academy Senior Shirts

We really feel for high school seniors whose final year did not end the way they planned. But some students at Seattle Academy used tough times as inspiration and created these T-shirts influenced by motivational murals around the city, turning the project into Community Threads. T-shirt sales benefit local food banks, too.
3. Gardner Minshew's ‘Jaguar King’ Bobblehead

After a successful 2019 rookie campaign that saw him become Jacksonville's starting quarterback, Gardner Minshew appears ready to carve out a decent career under center. FOCO is banking on that through this bobblehead that dubs him the “Jaguar King,” giving us a funny take on Netflix's "Tiger King" documentary.
4. PUP’s 'Morbid Stuff' Puzzle
A Morbid Stuff puzzle? With artwork updated for these strange times? 1000 pieces, you say? With an upper left corner as annoying as the band who created the music? Oh yeah baby it’s available for pre-order now! https://t.co/5M8DoBvU90 pic.twitter.com/5B3kZAkkQe

Puzzles are all the rage right now. Fast food companies are using them for promotional marketing, and now Toronto punk band PUP is turning its album artwork from last year’s “Morbid Stuff” into a puzzle.
5. Throwback ‘You Don’t Mess With the Zohan’ Merch
You Don't Mess With the Zohan
— Movie Promotional Merch Unlimited (@NightPromoting) September 14, 2019
Somewhere, we hope there is somebody who uses this promotional hairdryer every day. It’s just part of their daily routine. Their friends ask, “Why do you still use it?” And they say, “Because it works well and I love that movie.” That’s an ideal promotional outcome, isn’t it?
