Jeremy Pruitt’s bizarre gaiter and hat combo was the talk of college football on Saturday as we all marveled at how the Tennessee coach managed to cover almost every part of his head that wasn’t his mouth or nose. Pruitt’s attempt at a face covering was not only ineffective, it was absolutely hilarious, launching a thousand memes on social media.
As we prepare for Saturday’s showdown with the Vols, I spent some time wondering what Pruitt’s inspiration was for the look, which took me down a Photoshop wormhole. Let’s start with the most obvious:
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
The Great Cornholio
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Unella, aka “Shame Lady” from “Game of Thrones”
