Elvis Meets Vader from Headline Shirts

So…this shirt is amazing. If you don’t know, this is based on a (famous?) picture of Nixon and Elvis shaking hands (see the original below), only with Nixon replaced with Darth Vader. Obviously, given how Nixon’s presidency turned out, the substitution is pretty hilarious. I like that it works on two levels–first, it’s funny for people who don’t know the original picture because it’s, well, Elvis and Darth Vader shaking hands. But for those who do know the picture, it’s even more humorous, as well as pretty dang political (if you want it to be).

I think this is one of my favorite Headline Shirts designs (and I like a lot of their shirts, so that actually means something). If you want this sweetness on your chest, you can buy it for $20.00 on American ApparelĀ at their store. I also think the coupon I had for them is still working if you wanna check that out. I hope you enjoyed! Oh, read their product descriptions while you’re at the site–they’re often hilarious, and you’re missing out if you skip them.
