A Karate Kid Halloween

Halloween is a pretty big deal at ThinkCash, so this year the marketing team decided to dress up as the entire cast of Karate Kid for Halloween.  We’re pretty big fans of the movie (and 80’s culture in general) so we put a lot of effort into getting the details right.  Here’s the cast:

The ThinkCash marketing team (from left to right):

Pam as Daniel-san’s mom, Lucille Larusso
Lauren as Daniel-san’s girlfriend, Ali Mills (Lauren is a dead ringer for Elizabeth Shue)
Sarah as Ali’s friend (not sure what her name is in the movie)
MikeS as Daniel-san
Michelle (5 months pregnant) as Mr. Miyagi
Ben as a student at the Cobra Kai dojo
Eric as the Referee (who appears in all 3 Karate Kid movies)
Marcin as a student at the Cobra Kai dojo
MikeD as Johnny, the defending All-Valley Karate Tournament Champion
Andres as a student at the Cobra Kai dojo
Me a student at the Cobra Kai dojo

No Karate Kid reenactment would be complete without the final scene in which Daniel, barely able to stand, assumes the “Crane Kick” stance and delivers a blow squarely to Johnny’s chin, winning the tournament, Johnny’s respect, and Ali’s love.
