This colorful vintage tee features an awesome graphic that parodies the horror and science fiction movie posters of the 1950s and 60s. The shirt advertises a fake spoof called the Moth That Ate LA, and the image brings to mind films like Them!, Tarantula, The Spider, and arguably the most famous movie featuring a giant moth, the kaiju classic, Mothra.
The shirt was made by Hobie back in the 80s and even features the Hobie logo on the sleeve. Hobie is a brand best know for their sailing catamarans which are often referred to as Hobie Cats, but they also produce surfboards, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards. This shirt might be poking fun at another small class of sailing vessel called the Moth. The International Moth Class Association is partnered with one of Hobie's competitors, a sailing apparel brand called Zhik, and this shirt is likely poking fun at Moth dinghys through the use of a fun vintage horror themed graphic.
