The Year In Swag 2011: The Swagdown, part one

The Year In Swag 2011: The Swagdown, part one

Every year, The A.V. Club receives veritable tons of ridiculous promotional items, all of them vying for notice like a pack of screaming children begging for the slightest scraps of attention. This year, we decided to make the competition a little more literal by running down our top 10 swag items of the year. Here, Nathan Rabin and Tasha Robinson present the first half of our Swagdown Countdown. Write-ups and pictures of these and many, many more swag items are available in our annual Year In Swag piece; these are just the cream of the crop, the ones unusually suitable for wearing, caressing, or smuggling home from the office when no one else is looking. Watch part two of the swagdown here.
