Welcome to the strange,
dark and mysterious.
Not everything is as it seems.
Take a closer look.
If you are a fan of the strange, dark and mysterious, John Allen AKA MrBallen might just be for you. Growing up in Quincy, Massachusetts, John Allen struggled to find his calling in life but was determined to make something of himself. At the age of 22, Allen enrolled at the University of Massachusetts, graduated with a degree in English and Philosophy and started his training to become a Navy SEAL after being inspired by family and friends that had joined the military.
Whilst on deployment in Afghanistan, Allen’s fireteam scouted out and engaged with enemy combatants, in the midst of the gunfight he was struck and injured by a grenade. He ultimately survived and was awarded a Purple Heart for his service before retiring in 2017 and returning to civilian life. Allen started to produce story-telling content on TikTok and eventually went viral after sharing a mysterious story about missing Russian Hikers. This content continued to thrive and lead to the creation of his 6 million subscriber YouTube community.

As a former SEAL who was medically retired in 2017 after being injured in Afghanistan, John’s first hand experience with loss and trauma has sharpened his focus on the real life consequences of violence.
“So I try to tell all these stories from the victim’s perspective, knowing that their families or friends might be listening or watching. And I know that for them–these stories are not entertainment. They are personal tragedies.” Ironically, taking to the Internet to tell stories about the Strange Dark and Mysterious turned out to be part of John’s own recovery. And in June of 2022, John–who earned the nickname Shakespeare back in SEAL training–launched a non profit that raises money for victims of crime and for their families. Now–at the request of his fans–and his two sisters–John is offering a line of Strange Dark and Mysterious merchandise, most of which features John’s widely recognized logo of a bandaged YouTube “Like” button.
SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
WHERE IS MY ORDER/WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY ITEMS?
Estimated ship date is late November. Once the item is shipped, standard shipping times apply. If your order has items with different estimated shipping dates, your order will only ship once all items are ready. Once shipped, US shipments (depending on shipping method) will take 2-9 business days and international shipments will take 4-20 business days to be delivered. Orders being shipped to South America, Middle East and Asia may take 1-3 months to be delivered once shipped.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
We ship to most countries around the world with the exception of limited countries based on international agreements and USPS restrictions. If we are unable to ship to your country, you will be notified at checkout and your purchase will be blocked.
HOW MUCH DOES SHIPPING COST?
Shipping costs are displayed on the checkout page and are calculated based on weight, shipping method and destination.
WILL I HAVE TO PAY TAXES/IMPORT DUTIES IN MY COUNTRY?
Import duty is a tax collected on imports and some exports by a country's customs authorities. A good's value will usually dictate the import duty. While the cost of shipment for your package is included in your order total, you may be subject to taxes/import duties for your package upon arrival to your destination country. Kindly note, we are not able to cover additional costs in order for you to receive your package once it arrives at customs. We do everything on our end to declare customs (value, items, weight, material) to ensure that there is no added customs charge when your order arrives to your country. Most of our packages ship without any additional fees or charges, but each country has a unique customs process and occasionally random packages will be pulled for inspection. We cannot control if your order gets pulled and there are additional fees during the customs process in your country. We do our due diligence on our end to prevent this from happening, but unfortunately we are not in control of each order and it is up to your country's postal service how your order is handled. We recommend speaking with your local post office if you have any specific questions regarding your country's customs process.
CAN I UPDATE MY SHIPPING ADDRESS AFTER I HAVE ORDERED?
If you have incorrectly formatted or entered your address, please contact customer support immediately with your order number and correct shipping address. If you fail to communicate a shipping address change before your order is shipped you will have to contact the courier to reroute your order. Revolt is not responsible for shipment to an incorrect address if we are not provided the information prior to dispatch.
If your package fails to be delivered due to an insufficient delivery address the goods will be returned to us. Please contact us if this occurs and we will organize a reshipment to an updated shipping address.
HOW DO I TRACK MY ORDER?
Tracking information will be sent to the contact information you provide us. This will be sent via email/sms when your order has been fulfilled. For specific tracking details or if your delivery is late, you can contact the carrier directly for the most up-to-date information, including any carrier or regional delays.
WHAT IS A PRE ORDER?
A pre-order is designed with the customer in mind, where orders are taken over a period to ensure that you can secure your order before the collection sells out. All orders from this pre-order campaign are expected to have shipped by late November.
