20 E.T. Parody Shirts That Will Send You Over the Moon

It’s amazing where hunts for t-shirts lead me. After doing a blog for this August’s total solar eclipse, I thought I’d do a complementary blog here with some cool moon shirts. But when I entered that celestial body, I got a few shirts showcasing that iconic image from E.T. of the bike crossing over the moon. And with that, there came lots of great parodies. And you know how I love good parodies!
This collection has everything from the obvious to the ridiculous. Of course there has to be a Stranger Things shirt in this mix, since most of that show was an homage to E.T. and the movies of that time. Almost to the point of being a direct copy. No, I won’t say rip-off, because I loved every minute of it.
There also had to be a Nightmare Before Christmas parody. Since the big yellow moon plays such a big part in Jack Skellington’s world. Of course, that’s another image often parodied, so you may see a round-up of that closer to October.
And yes, there are a few Star Wars t-shirts. I had to get a Yoda reference in there somewhere, since Yoda and E.T. have both shared some screen time together (the Halloween scene from E.T. and in one of the senate scenes from The Phantom Menace).
So, E.T. wasn’t lying when he said: “I’ll be right here.” He’s not left our hearts, or in this case, our chests. Or at least images inspired by him…
