If you've had it with the rampant hyperbole in popular music from the 70's, this pattern will help you make a cross stitch to express your displeasure. I mean, obviously there would have had to be some conscientious objectors to this massive martial-arts brawl, right? There were probably even a few people who were doing Karate or Aikido instead, right? So let's try to make our disco songs a little more accurate and take fewer liberties with the facts from now on, hmmm? This stitch is inspired by the classic 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game, Kung Fu (itself a port of the arcade game Kung Fu Master) from 1985.

It depicts the game's protagonist, Thomas (because OF COURSE the greatest kung fu fighter in the world is a white dude, right?) about to kick one of his thousands of nameless, identical enemies so hard that he'll become capable of passing through solid matter. The colors and graphics have been represented as faithfully as possible, so this will make a great gift for that nostalgic gamer nerd in your life.

This was one of the most played games for the NES, so they're sure to recognize it as well.

It also serves as a sobering reminder to be careful about overstatement in your disco songs.
