MARK HAMILL GOES BERSERK!!

To celebrate the terrible changes made to the recent Star Wars Blu-ray release, here's a movie that aired on network TV only 4 months before Star Wars IV hit theaters. Mark Hamill plays an unpredictable psychotic who holds a deadly grudge against a famous country singer who punched him in the face when he was a baby.

I've seen 6-year-olds do more complicated ballet than that. LAME. And the French consider themselves to be good at that kinda stuff? FAIL.

I think this was a simple TV show's attempt for a musical number to the horrid "Star Wars and other Galactic Funk" LP from 1977/

Ah, yes, the ballet is recounting the infamous scene in which C3PO and Vader duke it out. Classic.

Luke has perfected his "crazy eyes." Also now I'm dying to know why the fuck a country singer punched a baby.

I can imagine vader walking up to luke during a ho-down, saying "Luke, I am your partner!"

It's a good thing for Mark Hamill's victims that it wasn't also GARBAGE DAY.

You know you'd think with him being a Lord and all he'd have some fancier footwork. Just sayin'.

Easy Cheese said...

Ha, you can tell tight gold pants that C3PO is a FULLY functioning robot. Much like Data from Next Generation. Thanks for scarring my precious childhood memories you french frogs!

Don't let Lucas see that last clip, he just might decide to add it to his next "updated" version...possibly the first clip, too.

I get the impression that the choreographer (such as it is) never actually saw any of the Star Wars movies, perhaps just found a box of costumes and a disco version of the soundtrack.

Ah, well...vive la Jerry Lewis!

I can't tell which clip I liked more. Then again, I'm tripping balls on neurological medication.

Cocaine's a helluva drug.

I can't stop laughing at the "country star punching a baby" concept. That's pure gold.

This is what the original trilogy will be like in another 10 years.

Excellent French choreography! Wonderful dance troupe! Elegant, chic, avant garde, stunning costume design, all of the hallmarks of French culture in one video!

Brandon said...

Wow. That was just amazing. Perhaps the best video I have ever seen.

FRENCH STARWARS BALLET: Who did the music for this, it's amazing! disco starwars beat with the bar scene breakdown. EPIC! and was that Jodie Foster at the end?

I remember hearing a really odd song by Jodie Foster where she sings (speaks) in French...I bet that was what she was going to perform on the show.

Is this going to be released in 3D at some point in the timeline?

BunnyCollective said...

I watched the whole thing :(

I'm thankful that this is the last thing I see before I kill myself.

One expects this from the Japanese, but the French? Shocked! Shocked I say! At least this was before Jar Jar Binks.
As for me and my house, we prefer Shatner's "Rocket Man."
