| 24 – gone but never forgotten
We may have seen the last series of 24, on TV at least, but BBT Clothing and the rest of the world will always remember Jack Baeur. Who could forget him really? Entertainment Weekly voted him as one of the 20 All Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture, and TV Guide ranked him in their Top 50 TV Heroes. Is it any wonder our cool 24 Jack Bauer T-shirts are so popular? So what made this fictional character such a hit? What was it about him that so gripped the public imagination? Well, how long have you got?
Jack Bauer, the Counter Terrorism Unit’s (CTU) main man, was certainly one of the coolest and most effective agents to have ever graced our TV screens. It didn’t matter what the problem was: whether it was preventing terrorist attacks on the U.S. A, saving civilian lives or coming to the rescue of various government administrations, Jack was your man. He became our own modern-day Superhero: he didn’t need a Green Lantern power ring, or kryptonite, he was just an ordinary guy with extraordinary powers. He always got his man using simply guile, courage and sheer determination. So, why did 24 strike such a chord in the public’s imagination? I guess it just came along at the right time following as it did, 911 and other subsequent terrorist atrocities. The world needed a hero, albeit a fictional one, and Jack Bauer was it.
He was undoubtedly the CTU’s most effective, if occasionally controversial agent, but he was the kind of guy you’d always want on your side. Whatever the problem, Jack Bauer would fix it, often at great expense to both himself and his family. It’s fair to say that his ‘methods’ weren’t always exactly what you’d call conventional, and he certainly wasn’t afraid to use torture occasionally if it got him the information he required, but no-one could doubt his heart was in the right place. As they say, sometimes the end justifies the means.
So BBT Clothing thought it was only fitting that we recognised this TV hero, and celebrated his place in popular culture. We’ve got 2 super cool 24/Jack Bauer T-shirts, and we’re sure you’ll love them. You can either choose our generic 24 Jack Bauer T-shirt, which is cool and understated, pretty much like the man himself, or our ‘Guns don’t kill terrorists – Jack does’ T-shirt
