Barney Stinson (HIMYM) had passionately fought for the idea that Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) is the real Karate Kid. I think Netflix’s Cobra Kai has proven Barney’s point humanizing Johnny Lawrence’s character. He must be so happy about it!
I realized that I haven’t really understood The Karate Kid. I was so young when I first watched it and all I remember was saying “YES, sensei” all the time whenever someone would ask me to do something. I also remember the overly dramatic fight especially when Daniel was about to lose but then he does that epic crane pose.
I know Ralph Macchio and how he looks like presently but never did I try to recall how he looked like in the movie. Having had The Karate Kid marathon over the weekend, I realized that all my childhood crushes were Ralph Macchio look alikes. I’ve never placed it together!
I was going to write about how Cobra Kai (the series) proves how vindictive Danny is & that Johnny wasn’t so bad after all. But I guess I just have to share this video I found in YouTube!
Barney was right, after all!
