"Faithful Friend" T-Shirt Worn by "Hangover 2" Star Now Available to Order From Friskybizpet Designs

The Hollywood Production Company Contacted Rita Reed Directly to Secure the Yellow Lab T-Shirt for Zach Galifianakis to Wear in the Smash Hit Comedy; Now the Original Can Be Yours to Own

OLATHE, KS--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) - Friskybizpet Designs today announced that one of its T-Shirts is worn by movie star Zach Galifianakis in the movie "The Hangover Part II."

The T-Shirt can be ordered from multiple retailers including Amazon.

Titled the "Faithful Friend" and conceived by Friskybizpet Designs CEO Rita Reed, the T-shirt was handpicked by the studio for the character "Alan," played by Zach Galifianakis.

The first "Hangover" movie catapulted Zach Galifianakis to super stardom, and became the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time. The sequel opens May 26, and is estimated to gross over $100 million during the opening weekend.

Friskybizpet Designs was contacted by the movie production staff in October 2010 after seeing the "Faithful Friend" shirt online.

The T-Shirt has become an online phenomenon, even having its own Facebook fan site.

"The buzz for this Yellow Lab T-Shirt is incredible. I am so honored that my Faithful Friend design was worn by Zach Galifianakis in 'Hangover 2' and is prominently displayed on the movie promotional posters," says Rita Reed.

Friskybizpet Designs is the brain child of Rita Reed, an Olathe, KS, radiology tech who has designed pet themed apparel and giftware since 2005. With over 5,000 designs based on 250 breeds, Friskybizpet is one of the largest providers of dog portrait apparel in the world.

Rita's passion for dog portraits evolved as she began taking pictures of her own Shelties, and realized how much she enjoyed photography. Shortly thereafter, she was taking pictures of friends', neighbors', relatives' and co-workers' pets, mostly dogs and cats -- but also the occasional hedgehog and baby goat.

Once Rita opened websites that offered dog-themed apparel to the public, dog lovers nationwide were quick to embrace her work.

"More than a perfect gift for a loved one, dog portrait designs are an excellent way to stir up fond memories of man's best friend. It appears there may be a fashion trend towards dog themed t-shirts. I have already been contacted by another major movie studio wanting to use one of my designs for an upcoming movie," says Rita Reed.
