What would be the reasons why someone would want to "carjack" a car?
From the 1960s to the early 1980s, a huge wave of semi-trailers was hijacked, the driver being forcibly removed from his truck. Normally, the assailant would steal the truck and leave the driver unarmed. A few years later, "carjacking" was described as the act of stealing a motor vehicle on the public road using the violence or threating its driver. Drivers reported that they were taken out of their vehicles and propelled to the ground; some were even beaten.
This long sleeve t-shirt takes a look at this phenomenon. Are the beings of this real world inspired by video games to commit such a crime or are video games inspired by the beings who commit such acts? A hypothetical answer, so absurd to elucidate.
Having no definite answer on this question given the double influence, Materiel decided to join these two dimensions in which the execution of this same action can be observed; namely the popular Grand Theft Auto San Andreas video game and the real world. The colorful cartoons- style cars are funny inspired by those found on the roads of video games, where the main character himself "carjack" cars.
