Found Item Clothing’s latest movie inspired T-Shirt comes at the perfect time, especially with the the resurgence of vampires in film, albeit teenage ones. Why Waltz When You Can Rock & Roll never “fully” appeared in the classic 80’s flick, The Lost Boys, so the FIC crew had an especially fun time recreating this beauty.
For every vampire, there is a vampire hunter. Count Dracula traded blows with Van Helsing; Deacon Frost went fang-to-fang with Blade; likewise, The Lost Boys were tracked by Edgar and Alan Frog, a pair of comic book-obsessed nerds portrayed with enthusiastic gusto by Corey Feldman and Jamisom Newlander.
And to hunt the undead, you need a killer wardrobe. To wit, we present the Why Waltz When You Can Rock & Roll design, which makes a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance during an uneasy, get-to-know-you sequence between the Frog Bros. and their relunctant ally, Sam (Corey Haim). However fleeting, the mix of non-sequitur sloganeering and provocative imagery instantly caught our attention here at FIC HQ…
You can pick up Why Waltz When You Can Rock & Roll from Found Item Clothing for $21.95. And no, vampire hunting is not a pre-requisite to purchasing this shirt!
A little side story: Before I started blogging about T-Shirts I used to do design DVD covers. I’d create my own covers for films that had deficient ones. Needless to say, for a few years I ran a site dedicated to that hobby. I had a couple hundred of covers in the bag and hundreds of others uploaded by some other people in the cover world. One of my DVD Cover friends, Bunny Dojo, actually started doing legit DVD Covers and one of the first films he worked on was 2008’s Lost Boys: The Tribe. Bunny Dojo is also the designer that came up with the logo for this site! Be sure to check out his packaging work for films that you may and may not have heard of!
