The Star Wars That I Used To Know [Video]

Run away hit Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye is on track to become the tune of the summer; this extremely well executed parody replaces the subject of a lover scorned with a Star Wars fan scorned (with quite entertaining results).

Courtesy of Teddie Films, the 5 minute parody video faithfully recreates the music and set of the Gotye video but layers over plenty of Star Wars references and some rather subtle (and not so subtle) jabs at where the Star Wars franchise has gone in recent years. If you’re even remotely dishearted over what Episodes I-III changed about the original trilogy, this one’s for you.

    Pretty darned good! That George Lucas – I KNEW he didn’t really care about us. :-)

    To be honest though I actually liked episode III almost as much as V. I mean watching 2 brothers fight with both hatred and love. But yes, I and II were pathetic, but I like to picture Star Wars as dinner i have to eat my veggies (episode I and II) to be able to eat my dessert.
