How to Dress Like "Link" from "Encino Man"
Have you ever wanted to look and act just like Link from Encino Man? Here's how you do it!
Get the shorts: You'll need a pair of plaid shorts that hit just at or below the knee. Bright colors preferred, 90s grunge style recommended.
Get the Shirt: A worn out T-shirt in any color (preferably NOT a neutral) To be more like link, have the shirt in an orange-ish peachy tone.
Get the Vest: A 90s style vest in any style will work. Look at thrift stores.
Get the shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor Hi-Tops are a MUST! Black is preferred, but any color will do.
Get the socks: Wear 2 pair layered in your shoes, in 2 different colors
Get a necklace: Some kind of long necklace with a rock pendant on it will work fine
DO THE HAIR: If you have dreadlocks, you're already set, but if you don't, you can tease your roots with a comb, and hairspray it to death, then pin it all up on top of your head, and twist the ends in as many wisps as you can. Look at at picture of him for ideas.
Get a pair of shades that look like Ray-Bans.
- If you need a jacket, get a long trench coat, preferably in a khaki color.
- Say words like "Wheeze the Juice!" and "Aaaaoooo! Bud-dy!" And if you see a girl, say "Betty Betty Nugs!!" But don't say much else. Just grin really big and grunt a lot.
- Climb and jump around everywhere. Try to act primal and caveman-ish.
- Have bad manners and spit food everywhere and make a mess when you eat. you can even eat out of a dog dish on the floor for a better effect.
- DANCE!!! You can't be link unless you dance all crazy and silly. ;)
- If you're having a bad day, go in the corner and cry and try to build a fire with some sticks, or you can whip out your lighter and play with it.
- Go to the arcade and be really loud and make primal noises when winning.
- Draw pictures on the table with ketchup and mustard bottles in the cafeteria or restaurant.
- If you can do a back handspring, do that as your "mode of transportation".
- If your prom is soon, dance on the dance floor and be the star of the show.
- Don't grab a woman's breasts because Link did. You could be registered as a sex offender.
- If you're going to put on the act, make sure it's the right time and place for such acts. Acting like this in a serious setting could result in taunting, annoyance, and the asking to be dismissed from the premises.
- Don't REALLY go to 7-11 and Wheeze the Juice. You can get in trouble.
- Don't attempt to drive like Link in the movie. That could result in an accident or the loss of your license.
