This humorous double-sided tee features a hilarious parody of the classic Stanley Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange. The movie, which was based on the Anthony Burgess novel of the same name, was released in 1971 and it starred Malcom McDowell as Alex, the delinquent leader of a gang of "droogs". This shirt spoofs the movie's famous poster art created by Bill Gold, who also made the iconic poster images for Casablanca and The Exorcist. The back of the shirt depicts a group of extra-terrestrials next to a sign for Thamesmead, an area in southeast London, which became famous for being the filming location of A Clockwork Orange.
With the fake tag line "Little green men in braces, boots n' bowlers..." Clockwork Alien was likely a funny mashup image conceived by a skate company. This shirt was made in the 90s when skate culture was in style, and it wasn't unlikely to see a group of 90s youth sporting baggy graphic tees, cargo pants, and chunky skate shoes from brands like Vans or Airwalk. The alien motif was also incredibly popular, and some skateboard brands, such as Alien Workshop, even adapted them as their signature symbol.
