The James Kopp 'Crane Kick' t-shirt gives the infamous 'Karate Kid' poster image a funny spin. In place of the boy's leg, a construction crane appears. As cranes pack a bigger punch than any human leg, this tee presents quite a dangerous situation.

The punny James Kopp 'Crane Kick' t-shirt is available now on Threadless; check out Kopp's site for more of his pop culture-influenced artwork.

Implications - Fashions that incorporate cartoons and pop culture will always remain popular in terms of consumption patterns because they are both fun and relevant. Businesses that capitlize on the modern obsession with celebrated cultural icons by producing familiar products will be successful with regard to profit and massive consumption.
