I watched E.T. again the other day for a VERY SECRET PROJECT. For some reason on this rewatch I was fascinated by his look and design. I was mostly just interested in his weird neck.
What a weird neck, am I right folks?
Then I started to think about how funny it would look if you put a turtleneck sweater on E.T. and his weird neck. It was very amusing.
Now, there’s a lot of truly wild and wonderful things on the internet. Some times it feels like any strange thing you can imagine probably exists somewhere out there on some obscure website. I like to play this game of “surely, I can find this on the internet.” I’m confident I’m not the first person to have this weird thought.
So I google “E.T. wearing a turtleneck.”
And I’m shocked at the lack of results.
Luckily when I put this call to action out to the world there were brave men and women who were ready to rise to the occasion.
I got this one from Hazel.
Patty went full french with hers. Looking great, E.T.
And Seth Urbina drew this beauty.
I don’t know why I couldn’t get this weird and specific image out of my head but I’m glad people drew it.
E.T. looks better in a turtleneck. He looks chill and trustworthy. When I was a kid I was terrified of him. If only he had a turtleneck, I wouldn’t have felt so threatened.
