Australian Chivers screwed out of ‘Keep Calm’ by Father Time. Aussie-friendly release time set (5 Photos)

Traditionally, we launch 'Keep Calm' at 9 am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time). This is a great time for our American Chivers, the day is just getting warmed up here in the West and it's lunchtime on the East Coast.

There' s one big problem though. The Chive is a global community and no county gets screwed harder than Australia. At 9 am PDT in Los Angeles, it's 3 am in Sydney, the witching hour.

Each KC&CO launch, we receive hundreds of emails from the Land Down Under; Aussie Chivers who tried to stay awake for the launch but passed out at their consoles long before they could claim their prize.

So Chiver Sam Clarke and his mates decided to do something about it. They threw a party with all their Chive friends to persuade us to have a more foreign-friendly launch of the ever-elusive 'Keep Calm'. (Sam's Twitter right here btw)

Your voices have been heard. We are going to make 'Keep Calm' available on theCHIVERY this Thursday at 3 pm in Sydney, Australia. That's Midnight in New York for us Yankees.

To spare everybody the mental gymnastics, we've put together a time zone breakdown of when 'Keep Calm' will go live in your country. You'll still be able to grab the shirt in the States but it will be very late and the demand lessened. At the very least, it won't be 3 am in Australia. As always, good luck and godspeed.

Chive On,


EDIT: Chive Logo Tees will also be available.

    Yes, I know it's just a shirt but I love this site and I want to rep the Chive properly. There are so many Chivers here in Melbourne running about shirtless, basically naked. This will help.

    • Jason

      If they look like #4, I'd say shirtless is not a bad option!

    • James

      First world problems.

      • Troy

        Ooo im from melbourne… 4 day weekend… . now i have 3 days of the Chive to go through yay ๐Ÿ™‚

  • dat rugby

    Aussie, Aussie, Aussie… Oi, Oi, Oi!!

    • Stan_Dalone

      hope you all get your T-Shirts, you deserve them with the show of dedication

  • tyler

    Ah, very cool. Nice to know the Chive actually listens when I write angry emails.

      Personally, I think this Aussie Chivette needs to be Chivette of the week.

      cleavage reflection in every shotglass –> everybody wins!

  • beer

    sweet, i always tell myself I'm going to make it until 3am. I never do and the shirts are gone by 3:15. by the time my alarm goes off and i come back to reality, it's all over but the crying as they say

  • the crown

    my mates are going to be fairly happy about this. I'm the only one of my friends who's managed to get one and i'm pretty certain they hate me for it

  • hipsterbgone

    #4 cute but keep your tongue in your mouth girl, let me see yo smile.

    Great Idea Chive!

    • Master_Rahl

      loving this hot Aussie Chivette… but she's not THE authentic Aussie Chivette

  • Dolfan0925

    Aussies are in the future right? So we will be looking for ours on Wednesday right?

    • Jonathan

      took me a while to realise the chart is actually right. the shirts will be available as soon as the New York clock ticks over to Thursday. at that time, because we're 15 hours ahead, our clocks will be reading 3pm Thursday.

    #4 … MOAR

    • Carptulo

      I think her sign is upside down

  • Htisss

    Bah…they are a bunch of crimals and hoodlums anyway.


    • Chris

      As us Kiwi's like to remind them of their lineage…


      • wikisaurus

        Sheep fuckers.

    • Maherart

      hahaha… would hope.

  • SuperDanMan4290

    "Probably the worlds best site in the world"… looks like you're proving them right Chive. ๐Ÿ™‚

    #5 just prove it. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Malkintosh22

      I would highly recommend you remove your signature.

  • Smack76

    • Paula_

      I wasn't home, that was my grandma asshat! I was stocking up on rohypnol.
      She wants to know when you'll be back?

    • Chris

      That would be like throwing a tennis ball down a hallway…

  • Rob C

    Wow this is awesome….. unless you live in europe ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    What would be even better is if you could have a pre-order system for the shirts. Though maybe that's just me being too English and wanting to queue to get an awesome shirt.

    • bramer666

      same here, I am sure there are some belgian chivers/chivettes that want some shirts to

  • soda pop

    I heard they don't have cheddar cheese in Australia…..WTF is that all about? Go America!

    • some guy

      not sure if trolling or just American.

    • ahheadlock

      we have many varied and interesting cheeses in Australia, cheddar amongst them. I hope this post has been informative.

    • Fawx

      I also ride a kangaroo to my job in the morning at the boomerang making factory.

      P.S. Cheddar Cheese – Invented in England. Go America who?

  • jrey81

    #4, let's get a better view of that chivette… so many questions left unanswered… gap, tanlines, hump…

  • The_Dood

    Looks like #4 owes a really nice set of photos to thank the Chive…


    Make Logo T's also available during this launch. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

  • Micker216

    Oh man… hopefully nothing goes wrong with my order this time since i'm still on back order from last go round..

    • Drew1720

      dude seriously!!! same here man. They've told me multiple times that it would be sent out only to be told about the back-order situation.

      • Micker216

        its an exclusive club. they told me that a few times then finally admitted there had been an issue and too many had been ordered. they told me i was in line to get one when the next release started though.

  • JAFitC

    Great! 11:00 pm Central Time (US) is right about the time I get back to my office after my bowling league!

  • Shirtless in Seattle

    How can you have a new release when you still haven't filled orders from the last release? Must be a tension release sort of thing.

    • riley

      i got mine from the last launch, you might want to contact the chivery. They're very responsive actually.

      • leon

        didnt recieve any reply from them after 3 emails ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • CMB

      I haven't received mine either.

  • Stan_Dalone

    #4 if you saw anything but her cleavage I have some bad news for you

    • Shimbamboom

      What? Like the upside down Australia

  • G_Funkatron

    This is an anxiety attack waiting to happen

    • Black6dog

      I truly hope the Chive doesn't entertain this idea. If we give in to one troll we give in to them all!!! For the sake of humanity don't do it.

      • Paula_

        …but I'm their troll! I'm special! I live in their basementsies! And me loves themsies!

        – the one you love to hate

        • Stan_Dalone

          • StansDiaper

            Wow someone missed it completely LMFAO. Paula did that on purpose whereas you my little moronic friend could spell your fucking way out of a wet paper bag. "so go and find a dyke to stink your finger in, so STFU and GFTO. " Yeah thats some good grammar there….

            • Stan_Dalone

              ya ya ya sure sure kiss my ass dweeb

              • FuckoffStan

                We've been through this before Sleeps_Alone my lips are in no way big enough to kiss that fat retired trucker planetoid you call an ass. Now this is where you say something about my lips being as big as a hippo remember?

          • Paula_

            Your… spellingsies? Right!? Moving right along… I've submitted a pic for you dear Wakes_Up_Alone, I hope the Chive randomises it. You'll know it when you see it… ๐Ÿ™‚

            – the one who loves to stick her finger in to dykes
