I have previously fessed up to not being a huge Star Wars freak. Do I like the movies? Of course, they are a pop-culture staple. That’d be like not enjoying a nice PB & J. You are blatantly a raging, ruthless anti-American if you don’t like some chunky peanut butter and grape/ strawberry jelly smashed together between two slices of carb. Allergic to peanuts? Use almond butter or SunButter or something.
There are no excuses.
Anyway, I know enough about Star Wars to know it’s a pretty sweet ride at Disney World, and that much of the franchise’s fan base, some nicknamed “Lucas Bashers,” have major beef with the prequel trilogy, Episodes I, II, and III. People complain that the script got corny, the overzealous use of CGI fucked shit up, Anakin was too whiny, Jar Jar Binks is irritating and childish and a racist character, etc. No, but really, people hate Jar Jar Binks.
Which is why I find this parody, which has gotten over 3.6 million views, of Gotye’s wildly popular “Somebody That I Used to Know” music video so entertaining. (You know, that song you can’t walk into a CVS or Walgreens without hearing.) Plus this guy’s face and teeth are haunting in a way that you can’t stop staring. It’s kind of like when you see someone who you know looks like some specific animal but you can’t place your finger on which one it i--AARDVARK!!
Wait until around 2 1/2 minutes in when they break out the Darth helmet and the George Lucas lookalike gets in Gotye Darth’s face. Classic.
Now and then I think of when I was in power
Like choking people with the Force until they died
But then you told them all my history
And took away my masculinity
And had my character portrayed by subpar actors.
Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over.
I had them believing that the first three films were really done.
But Star Wars will be done my way
I don’t care what you have to say
I think that they should let it go
And they’ll never get the Blu-Ray of the Star Wars that you used to know
