Ok, this was the first time that we had an epiphany while using one of our WTFs. At first we thought this was to cover your arm, so that your arms wouldn’t get darkened by the sun. This we found silly, because – well – if you want long sleeves why not go out in a long sleeve shirt? It’s not like the sleeves are particularly fashionable. Anyhow, it wasn’t until we started using these sleeves that we realized that they’re probably less meant for protecting your arms and more made for cooling them. Holy crap were these sleeves awesome for cooling your arms! Sure, they might not look cool, but they feel cool! Hell, why hasn’t someone made a full-body suit of this? Korean summers would be muuuch more tolerable if you covered yourself head-to-toe in this wristlet. Though, I’m sure people might stare at you a bit…FOR LOOKING SO COOL! Seriously though: we’re still not fully sure what these are for. Anyone? We just guessed that they were to protect your arms, but now we think they’re for cooling them. Does anyone have the official answer? We’d like to know.
Otherwise, WOOHOO! It’s time for another WTF giveaway! Last time we made the mistake of announcing the contest the week AFTER the first four weeks, so there was a bit of confusion. We’ll be doing these giveaways every 4 weeks, rather than every month, which means 13 giveaways a year instead of 12! Sweet! This giveaway is for the Twonkle Cup, Double Eyelid Tape, Ddung Products, and arm covers. All you have to do to enter to win is make your own Twonkle Twonkle Nursery Rhyme! Submit it in the comments here or via YouTube. There’s no line limit, but please don’t write an epic of a poem :D
On a side note, we’re not sure what happened, but within the past week we had something close to 20 emails asking about what camera we use. Why the influx? A lot of people starting film classes recently? Who knows. Anyway, if you’re one of the people who are wondering, this is our camera here. It’s not the best DSLR video camera out there (we’d go for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II if we could afford it), but for what we need to do this camera gets the job done. In fact, we list our full camera gear here, with all our filters and audio recorders and lenses and whatnot, if you’re geeky and interested as well.
