80's Coin-op Leather Jacket

Become an arcade action hero from the 80's
  [vote for,

For those who played the arcade games in the 80's. Its a leather jacket with a dragon design across the back. In the cuffs of the jacket are motion sensors which translate your arm movements into appropriate sound affects. Make the 'swishy swish' noise as you flail your arms around. Throw a punch and it sounds like you have broken the sound barrier with your fist. Smash out a back elbow and you get a nice 'Unngggh' sound. Also has the dramtic showdown music, end of level boss warning tune and a display screen which translates what ever you say into japenese and then back to English to really confuse people. Until the jacket is worn on the display screen its flashes 'insert credit', once the jacket its put on it simulates the sound of the coin dropping and the happy 'diddly dee' played by almost all arcade games.. Recommended for those who have to rescue a kidnapped girlfriend, are walking through a bad part of town or are secret crime fighting vigilante - be warned though you may be forced to fight a family member whilst wearing the jacket but for no apparent reason...

       Also, I think it must be lunchtime.

       YES! Double Dragon is the holy grail of the beat 'em up genre. Hence the fighting a family member for no obvious reason...

       Where's that kung foo swisshing sleeve idea?   

       Can't seem to find it. [+]

       By the title I thought you meant having an arcade game built on the back of your jacket, so when you're queueing in a shop the person behind you can amuse himself while you earn some extra coins. Then he dies in an unfair/annoying way and kicks you in a rage . . .
