seen in Real Genius & Repo Man
Summer Games 1984 has
been a long time coming. This is without a doubt one of the most complex - and awesome - re-creations
so far. Working with an illustrator and graphic designer, we’ve
brought this shirt back to life with the quality and accuracy we bring
to all of our shirts. This fine top, worn by Val Kilmer in Real Genius
(it also appears in Repo Man
), commemorates the 1984 Summer Olympics
in California and features a runner with gas mask and torch hurdling
his way through the polluted LA landscape. Most memorably, Chris Knight (Kilmer's character) sports this shirt
when he’s asked by Susan, “Can you hammer a six inch spike
through a board with your penis?” Summer Games 1984 is printed on white American Apparel t-shirts.
Accidentally Appropriate Attire!

"I'd just got my first batch of Real Genius
shirts in and I was wearing the gas mask runner shirt at our movie night called Los Angles is Toast, where we watched Miracle Mile
and Repo Man
. I'd never seen the latter before, and I was shocked to see the gas mask Olympics shirt from Real Genius
in the film. Thanks FIC!"
It's A Moral Imperative

"I bought this shirt for our 1985 movie night party (natually featuring Real Genius
and it looks terrific! Exactly the same as in the movie and it was shipped fast enough to make it on time. Great job FIC!"

"For years, I had been obsessed with the shirts worn by Val Kilmer in this movie. I nearly made a mess in my pants when I found them here. They look so authentic and
have the highest quality, that even people who order fish at diners and send it back couldn't find something to complain about.
I could easily spend $500 on other shirts but I apparently eat at diners... not fancy restaurants.
I do hope they continue making shirts from other great movies. I would recommend the site and all the products on it to both friends and enemies alike."

"My favorite movie is Real Genius
and I`ve always wanted the shirts Val Kilmer wears. I found this site a few years ago and I`ve been waiting till I had some extra cash so I could pick them up.
When this day came I was extremely pumped! The images rock, and the shirts are super comfy. I think the prices are good and the shirts arrived pretty fast.
Even though most people will have no idea where these shirts are from, it`s puts a big smile on my face everytime I wear them.
Plus I threw in the Rad Racing shirt for good measure. I look forward to being able to pick up a few more in the future like the Senor Pizza tee and bunny Slippers."
