Because f*ck George Lucas, apparently.
Many Star Wars fans can relate to the notion that the Star Wars of old has been dumped on, tainted, over-modified, and generally fouled up by a little too much hands-on action in the decades following the series’ debut. To these maligned fans, they may often sit back and wonder just what happend to the Star Wars they used to know.
Oh, someone has now done a song specifically about this? It’s actually called “The Star Wars That I Used To Know?” It’s a parody of that ridiculously popular Gotye song? Good, I was hoping for that.
Courtesy of Teddie Films, check out the back and forth between Darth and George, complete with wonderful stanzas like:
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.
You are now addicted to an overuse of graphics
And making Greedo shoot first? Han shot first.
So when you tried to have the Force make sense
You introduced the midichlorians
And what’s the deal with having me be dubbed over (Noooooooooo!)
“It’s a story of heartbreak to which Star Wars fans everywhere can relate. And even with all that heart ache, it’s still a better love story than Twilight,” says Teddie Films.
Now, get that unstuck from your head sometime within the next year. Good luck with that.[via Geekologie]
