George showed up – SURPRISE – as one of the two finalists in Colbert’s Greenscreen Challenge. (See an entry montage) Colbert introduced the first clip, with the creator, Bonnie (not that Bonnie) on the phone, and then announced that the creator of the second clip, one ‘George L.’ was with them in the studio.
Alas – George lost, puppydog eyes and all. He hung out for the rest of the show, both of them holding in the laughs only slightly better than Horatio Sanz on SNL, and ended with a heroic lightsaber duel. Who won? George. I believe that’s the first time Colbert let a guest win anything.
I’ll keep an eye on Youtube for more clips, but right now there’s not much there. Pirates, where are you when I need you? Slacking. How typical.
Best entry I’ve seen yet in the Stephen Colbert Greenscreen Challenge. (Warning: Contains George W. Bush.)
J. Hasbien Talent Agency. Finding work for ‘semi-retired’ sci-fi characters.
Wookiee Nights, a Star Wars/Boogie Nights trailer mashup. Yes, really.
Triumph of the Empire, an Imperial propaganda film entirely in LEGO. Inspired, obviously, by Triumph of the Will (which should be no stranger to well-studied fans,) when I first watched this I thought it was from the latest LEGO game, but apparently not. Amazing.
Three in the Afternoon is a fanfilm about dorks with lightsabers. That doesn’t suck. (Trust me: Most of them do.)
There are a couple of Star Wars references in Weird Al’s latest video, ‘White and Nerdy.’ Are you shocked? I’m shocked.
Random Secret Cracktastic Bonus Video: Stephen Colbert’s ‘Charlene (I’m right behind you)’
We Didn’t Start the Fandom, a Harry Potter fandom filk. Probably doesn’t make much sense if you’re not in the fandom or reading Fandom Wank, but trust me, it’s pretty funny if you know what they’re talking about.
The old school Ewok song, acoustic on Craig Kilborn. It’s a sing-a-long!
Weird Al performs ‘Yoda’ live. S-O-D-A!
“The man who played Anakin Beefstroker was actually better than Hayden Christensen.” – Stephen Colbert, while discussing the (fake) porno Sperm Wars II: Attack of the Bones on his show.
