Say what you will about Seattle real-life superhero Phoenix Jones, but dude has good taste in armor. Not long ago we documented on The Daily Weekly Jones' efforts to buy a $198,000 crime-fighting suit. Now it's a bulletproof helmet the ALL-CAPS loving vigilante is after, although this time it appears the new toy may come with a significantly smaller price tag.
How much below cost? Well, by the sound of it, the deal comes down to the ever-valuable Facebook "Like".
From Jones' blog:
I just worked out a deal with Nightmare Armour Studios to begin production on my new bulletproof helmet at below cost. I NEED YOU to LIKE his page. (click the nightmare studios button and like his Facebook page) (sic) Every 1000 likes his page gets takes on fifth of the total price off the helmet. If he gets all 5000 LIKES he will make an extra bullet proof (sic) helmet for my team.
Jones goes on to post two photos of helmets he's apparently digging, and encourages others to do the same in the comment section of the post. He says helmets posted by fans that he likes may get incorporated into his final design.
Here are the two options Jones posted:
See a helmet here befitting of Seattle's premiere ass-kicking real-life superhero?
