Stryper Tee in Whip It


Stryper Whips It Good

vintage stryper t-shirt whip itIf you’re a vintage tee aficionado or a huge Stryper fan (just kidding) check out the film Whip It. This flick scores bonus points with a vintage tee that isn’t just wardrobe eye candy – it’s an integral part of the script. Elliot Page’s character “Bliss” sports a vintage Stryper t-shirt throughout and it actually thickens the plot.

The tee had the surprisingly still-together band (still on tour in 2023!) in publicity heaven. They even weighed in on authenticity and pointed out that the shirt in the film is a actually vintage bootleg and compared it to their licensed version. But Stryper management would have had to give clearance for the tee to appear in the film, so the fact that it was a bootleg shouldn’t have come as any surprise.

The best part of the movie is that there is no music by Stryper in it. Features 38 Special, Ramones, and even Dolly Parton.
