My Life by Vó Maria is definitely a relatable concept, as I think every tech user has been frustrated with an overly tangled cord at least a few times. And this one is well-rendered, with realistic holes in the earbuds, an accurate plug, and just enough detail in the tangle to make the complication clear. What cements the concept for me, though, is the use of rough, almost MSPaint-style writing. Having the slogan in such a state of disarray makes it clear that this shirt isn’t just about having a messy, knotted cord, it’s about having a messy, knotted whole entire life. And now that this style of headphone is more old-fashioned, with many users moving towards cordless air pods, it says something not just about messiness, but potentially also about cheapness or lack of money as well. If anything, that just makes the concept even more relatable!
