Think of all the non-perverse things that you normally get done in your day that take three minutes. You can make a sandwich, wash your hair, make a phone call, or even run in place before passing out due to a sheer lack of stamina and energy. (That last one might just be me.) Your best alternative to all of those things? Watching a bunch of Star Wars characters die one right after each other. Sure, you don’t get to see either Jar Jar or pre-helmet Anakin bite it, but it’s a sobering approach to the sci-fi classic.
The video was put together by the death-minded geniuses at Digg, who added the mash-up sounds of Girl Talk’s “Play Your Part (Pt. 1),” which doesn’t seem like it would be the perfect pairing for a bunch of blaster and lightsaber fatalities, but it’s pretty genius. The action falls right in with the drumbeats through much of the video, and Alderaan explodes right when the song opens up. I’m having trouble believing that Digg wasn’t somehow partly responsible for George Lucas putting all of these things in his movie specifically to match this song over 35 years later.
