This sweet double-sided t-shirt promotes the Austin Powers series of films starring comedian and Saturday Night Live alumni, Mike Myers. Myers didn't just star as the title character, the actor also served as a writer and producer for the trilogy of movies, which he based around his love of 1960s British cinema. Myers also played multiple roles in the series, although that was not his original intention.
When development began for Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, the first movie in the series, Myers was hoping that Jim Carrey would be willing to play Powers' dastardly arch nemesis, the aptly named Dr. Evil. Carrey was interested in taking the role but he had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts, which left Myers to step in instead. It's hard to imagine the film any differently considering Myers managed to be hysterical in both roles. Reportedly about 30 to 40% of the film was entirely improvised, including the shushing scene between Dr. Evil and his son Scott, portrayed by Seth Green, an impressive feat given how the scene remains one of the most popularly quoted bits from the movie.
