Under the Tusken Sun. You knew someone would eventually make this fan film…
I’m not a huge Family Guy fan, but they have done some amusing Star Wars riffs, some collected here by Stewie’s Playground.
Judge the Cinemax ‘Fix You’ promo for youself.
The Ballad of Han, Luke & Leia. It’s a filk! It’s a video! It’s both!
And to wrap us up, one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen on TV – the tail end of I Love The 80’s: 1983 containing their Return of the Jedi riff and Micheal Ian Black’s He-Men monologue, which me VH1’s bitch for longer than I feel comfortable admitting. Contains actual praise for Mark Hamill’s acting! Bonus: 1980, Olympic hockey, That’s Incredible! and ESB.
Wednesday was Denis Lawson‘s birthday (yay, Wedge!), so to honor everyone’s favorite GFFA supporting character, this week’s featured filk is an excerpt from the stage extravaganza Star Wars: Musical Edition. Set just after the Rebel briefing in Return of the Jedi, Wedge’s Lament is a heartfelt tribute to the friends Wedge has seen come and go as the only non-main character to survive all three movies, and a hope that he will lose no more friends by helping to end the war.
In other filk news, “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album released on Tuesday. The video for his new tune “Weasel Stomping Day” was produced by Seth Green and his cohorts over at Robot Chicken and aired on this week’s episode.
The bonus DVD menus for Return of the Jedi are less than thrilling. But then, it is the 80’s, when everything was fugly. Especially Luke’s hair.
Trailer for 5-25-77. That’s an upcoming movie I haven’t heard of for a long time…
The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, and Return of the Jedi in 60 seconds, with Attack of the Clones and Empire Strikes Back in 10.
British Phantom Menace spoof. I believe this is from French and Saunders – that’s Jennifer Saunders as Qui-Gon, anyway. Some of the funny must have gotten lost in the trip over the Atlantic, but screenshots of the Queen Amidala scene have been amusing me for years so I had to link it. Sorry. This action figure parody of game show The Crystal Maze may amuse more.
Ewoks and Stormtroopers, just because:
– Injured stormtrooper.
– Ewoks cartoon promo.
– Return of the Jedi trailer.
– Classic Clip: Stormtrooper hitting his head.
This week, the video sheep of the internet are all drooling over Chad Vader – Day Shift Manager. Thankfully, this one is actually funny. Hooray!
The follow-up to last week’s A Beginners Guide To Faking Your Death On The Internet, Luke Lewis’ A Beginner’s Guide To The British. The part about Oasis vs. Blur literally had me on the floor.
And lo, I am dead: A 1999 clip from The Daily Show that asks is Jar-Jar Gay?
And finally, for those with strong constitution, Donnie and Marie do Star Wars: Part I, Part II. Horror beyond imagination!
– Obi-Wan is Going Commando.
– Star Wars on a Banjo.
– Rise of the Troopers trailer.
– You Might Be a Cylon!
– Rockabilly Rancor
– Classic Clip: Lapti Nek Music Video
First up, Mistful’s quick recap of Revenge of the Sith:
ANAKIN: I think you’re so beautiful because I love you.
PADME: No, you think I’m so beautiful because I’m Natalie Portman, and finer than a July day. Ass.
Next, Star Wars for Dummies by lennongirl… All six episodes: TPM, AOTC, ROTS, ANH, ESB, ROTJ.
But no parody post is complete without a musical link: The United States of NOOOOOO!!
