Elwood mutters this iconic line to Jake in their namesake movie, The Blues Brothers, as they are about to embark on a cop-ridden journey to Chicago.

A question we always get here at ShadesDaddy.com is, “What were the sunglasses that the Blues Brothers wear in the movie?” Well, Jake and Ellwood Blues sport the classic Ray Ban Wayfarer (RB2140).

This original Wayfarer has been in production since the 1950’s and has become an iconic accessory for many legends that have worn them. Sported by everyone from JFK to Tom Cruise in Risky Business to the Blue Brothers, Ray Ban Wayfarers are the go-to for instant cool.
