For the Slovenian philosopher, Slavoj Žižek, Dreamworks Studio’s animated movie “Kung Fu Panda” is a perfect embodiment of the way a disavowed ideology fonctions in modern times we live in when for an idea to spread and to flourish noone even has to effectively “believe” in it… Thus the concept of this pop culture/culture theory design mash-up that blends the film’s main hero, Po the Panda, the master of ancient Kung Fu martial art, with the present day Master of popular culture analysis, the great and powerful Slavoj Ž. himself!

Finally, now in t-shirt form, the image you’ve always longed to adorn yourself with: a jostling sea of worried Prussian philologists. A lone central figure dares to challenge the viewer directly, demanding that you in turn, engage him. This is a very challenging shirt, and not for the faint of heart. Also, his moustache is ridiculous. This item is perhaps the ultimate gift for a loved one, or pet. Imagine a dog or a squirrel wearing this shirt! That would be adorable.

Coffee-without-milk instead of coffee-without-cream serving movie scene from Ernst Lubitsch’s black and white classic “Ninocka” is one of Slavoj Žižek’s all time favorite anecdotal examples that Slovenian marxist-lacanian philosopher uses to illustrate.. well, basically all sorts of things, the complex functioning of Jacques Lacan’s “objet petit a” (object small a) topological concept being only one of particulars. Thus the idea of an imaginary creamers brand designed to let you enjoy your morning coffee neither with cream (or milk) nor just plain but specifically with-without-cream which is already whole other cup of coffee – just the way you like it!
