New German police helmet is straight out of ‘Spaceballs’

Police in Bavaria, Germany, revealed their new police riot gear in response to increased threat of terror attacks across Europe.

The suits reportedly cost 65 million euros and can withstand attacks from Kalashnikovs, but are attracting interest across the internet for another reason. There’s something about them that looks awfully familiar…

Do you see it??

That’s right! The new protective suit looks very similar to the one worn by Rick Moranis’ tyrannical boob Dark Helmet in the 1987 Mel Brooks classic Spaceballs.

Being the internet, the internet went and had some fun with Photoshop:

Ahhhh, we have fun don’t we, internet?
