It's clearly intentional and self-referential. I don't think it's trolling, per se. I think it's meant to be ironic.

Hey look on the bright side, if you buy the charge it shirt you can get the bag, cut the bottom out and instantly have a $495 tank top, this post should be in the the mustachians around the web thread!!!

Just buy one of those reusable grocery bags for 99 cents and cut the bottom out.  Viola fashion!

No, you have to have a "brand" that has lots of shopping bags price really high, that way people know you paid a lot.

Irony is like quality: you can't put a price on it.

I say go the DIY route and just write whatever brand you want on with a sharpie.

Use the $495 instead to buy some food!

Write your own name on it with pretentious handwriting and you can have a "one-of-a-kind GuitarStv exclusive".

Mmmm . . . could probably up charge for the artisanal back to roots style of shopping bag clothing.

I shop at Nordstrom for a few things like dress shoes, shirts, and slacks. But seriously, that is whacked.

I clicked on your link a few weeks ago and now every time I am on Yahoo, I get an ad for this crazy shirt.  I have been pegged as a sucker!!  Probably best to get ads for things that you have zero interest in buying.

My Mom made her reusable shopping bags by getting tank tops from the $0.25 bin and sewing the bottoms shut.  Maybe she should be fashion forward and cut the bottoms out of them...

I am having the same problem :)  At least they aren't ads for things that actually tempt me now :)
