Star Wars: The Force Awakens meets Apocalypse Now with the Awakening Now TIE FIGHTERS T-Shirt, offering up a perfect mash-up of two very different films.
Apocalypse Now shone a very harsh and gritty light on the Vietnam War, while Star Wars is about the heroes standing up to the darkness and defeating the bad guys. One film has machine guns while the other has blasters and lightsabers. They probably couldn’t be more different. But artist ALIENBIKER23 found a way to make it work, by inserting First Order TIE fighters into a classic scene that originally had helicopters filling the sky. Even if you’ve never seen Robert Duvall say “I love the smell of napalm in the morning,” you’ll still get a thrill out of this eye-catching image.
The Awakening Now TIE FIGHTERS T-Shirt is available for $19.95 at NeatoShop.
