Camiseteria’s Peguei!

Camiseteria‘s Peguei! by Fernando Degrossi is the rare shirt design that literally made me laugh out loud when I saw it. It’s one of those images that is at once so wrong, and also so right. Because yeah, Yoda and Miyagi did pretty much fulfill the same role, acting as fatherly guides for their young heroes. Both had wise ways, and spoke lines that people are still quoting today. But of course the differences are just as pronounced, and that’s what makes the design hysterical. To me, it has that same WTF quality as seeing wildly inaccurate bootleg DVD covers – the weird juxtapositions make you think of the original properties differently than you ever have before (and sometimes it even makes you like them both better). What really puts the design over the top, though, is the incredible skill of it. Yoda looks perfect, and the red sun in the background does a great job of both grounding the scene and clarifying the concept. So slick.
