Valentino Rossi’s special helmet design for the 2016 Misano MotoGP has been revealed today and it features a tribute to one of Valentino Rossi’s favorite films – The Blues Brothers.

Rossi and Uccio both feature on the front of the helmet dressed as the iconic Blues Brothers, and the words ‘Sweet Home Misano’ is written in large letters above them – this is a play on words with the Blues Brothers song ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ from the film. The side of the helmet also features the police car from the film.

On the rear Valentino Rossi’s cartoon dogs and cat are also dressed as Blues Brothers.
