Join Us for Deadshirt Date Night: Pain & Gain



This Thursday we’ll be hosting another Deadshirt Date Night, and this time we’ll be watching Michael Bay’s unsung, near masterpiece, Pain & Gain.

We know you’re drinking and grilling right NOW, but in a few days you’re going to be revisiting the best film Michael Bay ever made without Will Smith, and you’re gonna do it with us! Pain & Gain tells the (somewhat) true story of some gym rats who kidnap and rob a rich guy, all in pursuit of the American Dream. It’s a farce. It’s a satire. It’s a dark comedy. It’s a tragedy? It’s kinda the best thing ever. Mark Wahlberg, The Rock, Anthony Mackie and Tony Shaloub all turn in amazing performances and Ed Harris plays a private eye! It is so much better than it has any right to be.

So, join us Thursday, May 29th, at 8:00 PM ET, for some patriotic banging and clanging with Pain & Gain (available on Netflix instant) and chat with us about it on Twitter.

How it works:

  • First, follow @DeadshirtDotNet on Twitter!
  • Then, at exactly 8:00pm ET on Thursday, May 29th, press play on your copy of Pain & Gain.
  • For the next two hours, join members of the Deadshirt staff – including Dominic Griffin (@captain_fuck) Max Robinson (@DieRobinsonDie), Haley Winters (@winterzzzzzzz) and more – in commenting on the film, cracking jokes, trading stories and trivia, and just generally having a good time.
  • Use the hashtag #DeadshirtDN (that’s short for Date Night) and we’ll retweet our favorite comments on the @DeadshirtDotNet account for all to see!
  • Make new friends, have some laughs.

Come follow us, drop us a line and let us know you’re coming!
