On the Internet today: a supercut mixtape of the most iconic t-shirts to grace the Silver screen. The edit includes some memorable faves — Vote For Pedro, Nigel’s Green Skeleton tank top from This Is Spinal Tap, the so-called Shark Cat design from Pineapple Express — but is carefully leavened with some curious artifacts of the slogan variety from the ’80s.
Think you can identify all of the movies? Be the first to do so and you’ll win a $100 gift card good for anything at Found Item Clothing! Details on how to enter right at Found Item’s blog, It Goes To 11. (A full list of every film will be posted after the winner is announced.)
Highlights here in this sprawling, 21-minute (!!!) odyssey include a gaming-as-addiction montage (:38 seconds), a Pong tutorial from Jeff Bridges and Harry Dean Stanton (2:03), a three-piece tribute to Michael J. Fox (8:57), and a montage of digital dance offs (10:29)!
See a full list of the films as sequenced at YouTube.
Spotted on the Internet last week: a gallery of fake cereal box designs, most with a sugary, pop culture twist. Some of these have likely appeared previously on HYA, but two of my faves are posted below; you can see the rest here or by clicking on the image squares below.
The price, you ask? A cool $100,000! (It’s not exactly high fashion, but you would have a trump card come Halloween…)
More about the garment, from the product’s official descrip:
This Cobra Kai gi was worn by William Zabka’s character Johnny Lawrence during filming of the 1984 movie The Karate Kid. We obtained the gi on eBay from a collector who purchased the gi from ReelClothes.com. The gi comes with a framed Certificate of Authenticity from ReelClothes.
Kevin Stecko, the founder of 80sTees.com bought the gi because he always wanted to wear an authentic Cobra Kai gi for Halloween. We used this gi to create copies which we sell as our Exclusive Movie Quality Cobra Kai Costume.
As you may be guessing by the price our goal is not really to sell the gi as much as it is to put it out there for the world to appreciate. The Karate Kid is Kevin’s favorite movie of all time and he wanted other fans to be able to see this amazing piece of 80s movie history.
