Fans of 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' are sure to feel right at home wearing one of these 'Everything Sux' t-shirts. After all, who can forget that memorable scene in which Scott Pilgrim feels overwhelmed by his whole fighting-seven-evil-exes-for-Ramona situation and declares, using refrigerator magnets, that "Everything sucks?"
The 'Everything Sux' t-shirts come courtesy of Emma Harckham, who designed the shirt to be sold over on RedBubble. Even though the t-shirt doesn't feature any Bryan Lee O'Malley artwork, true Scott Pilgrim devotees will instantaneously recognize the reference as soon as they see it.
