Hackerman's windbreaker is quintessentially 80s, featuring bright colors and bold patterns. Look for a jacket that combines shades of blue, purple, pink, and white, preferably with geometric or abstract patterns. The more it looks like it came straight out of a vintage store, the better.

About Hackerman

Hackerman is just one of the many characters to appear in the Kickerstart crowdfunded film, Kung Fury.

Since Hackerman sent Kung Fury to the wrong time, the rest of the crew including Thor, triceratops, The Viking Babes, and a tyrannosaurus came to the aid of King Fury. Hackerman altered the time line and finally got the group the historical time of the Nazis. The team bans together to destroy the Nazi army, and then Hackerman revived Kung Fury to defeat Hitler once and for all! Kung Fury may have been the hero, but he couldn’t have accomplished his mission without the help of Hackerman.
