Yeah, I get that it’s pretty much the last thing we need right now. I get the sense that every other Family Guy and every single episode of Robot Chicken is just a Star Wars parody at this point. Which is fine I guess, but can Star Wars really support that much parody? (Red Letter Media’s feature-length reviews are obviously excluded–there’s a lot of sharp criticism there, not nerd griping over whether Han shot first.)

Anyway, I have to give this video a pass, because it’s actually quite clever. I do think the concept of the video gets hazy–let’s just say it has a metafictional twist–but it’s damn funny. And you know you want to believe that it wasn’t really George Lucas doing those prequels, right?
