Torcedor Personalizado website t-shirt with QR Code up close

Yup, another website has used my QR Code in a product demo (previously: I’m famous in a random MeeGo demo). Just goes to show that the fidelity of a QR code holds up pretty well even after being shrunk down to 70px wide, rotated, colored green, displayed on an LCD screen, and captured by an iPhone camera.

The website belongs to a Brazilian company called Torcedor Personalizado (Custom Fan) which is apparently selling t-shirts emblazoned with a custom QR Code to coincide with the World Cup. Here’s a line-by-line translation of the homepage graphics:
