Patton Oswalt has been busy making the Internet his own here lately. While he's always been a popular figure, his 2013 on the Internet is becoming the stuff of legend. It all began with the epic Star Wars filibuster that exploded across the web. Once the animated rendition of Oswalt's fantastic take was released, it pushed the views for the scene up well over the 3 million mark, solidifying its place in Internet lore.
