We all want to get that original holiday gift, don't we? Another season goes by, you give the same types of gifts to the same people and you never actually see them again. We here at the Mid-majority have a solution to your problem.
Global warming may be creeping slowly north, but it may take a while to get to Burlington, Vermont. Now, to brave the winter cold, you could buy a regular pair of gloves, but who the heck would notice them? We have the perfect answer to that with the Vermont "spirit fingers". Not only do they keep your hands warm, but allow you to be seen in the crowd as well.
A bit ostentatious, you say? Well, duh. Of course they are. That's the point.
Anyone can wear a regular pair of gloves, but how many people can say they have small pom poms
actually attached to the fingers? Really if you want, it gives you the option of showing different levels of support for different levels of excitement. A regular layup? Maybe go with a couple of fingers. A #superhoop? Maybe that gets a whole hand worth of pom poms flying. And then when the omgdunx finally comes? Then you let all 10 fingers fly.
(TMM does not advocate the use of a single finger in a vulgar manner, and the "spirit fingers" were not designed for that purpose.)
Now you say, what use do gloves have at a basketball game? Isn't that more of an outside thing? It's true they can be used outdoors, but why not indoors? How cool would these things look on the hands of a shirtless co-ed in the student section? Or what if an entire section had these? How intimidating would that be for America East teams coming to the home of the defending champions?
So, as you can see, these "spirit fingers" can be used just about anywhere. Walking down the street? Everyone will know you're a huge UVM supporter. Driving your car? Think about when you're caught in traffic or at a light and the driver looks across and sees those things. Pure awesomeness, there's no other way to put it.
And you can get these "spirit fingers" for the low, low price of just $12.95. Why would you buy just one at that price? Buy two, buy three, buy a dozen. Why leave anyone out of the UVM fun?
In the end, there are plenty of gifts you can buy this holiday season, but there are a select few that you truly need to have, that stand out from the crowd so much that they are the envy of everyone you'll come into contact with. The University of Vermont "spirit fingers" are one of those gifts. This kind of opportunity won't come again. Once these sell out, I expect them to be on Ebay for double or triple what you can pay for them right now.
So act now, and tell them the Mid-majority sent you. You won't regret it.
