Fact: if this were canon like the Star Wars Holiday Special, it would do less damage to the dignity of the series. Hell, this is less offensive than the prequel series.
What the hell did I just watch?!
I agree with Myroth… wow
1000 points on the Corny Scale, but the princess leia imitator was really hot. B)
Why isn’t my hand coming off my face?
Thank god i never liked Star Wars O.O
Move it Darth xD LOL
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, WHO ALLOWED THIS? You are telling me George Lucas signed off for someone to use the Star Wars licence on some theme park bullshit……
This is a bigger crime against humanity than a million holocausts combined.
@nietzschesucks: That’s a bit far. Two or three maybe, but unless they have Jar Jar singing about Midiclorians and rapping Ewoks, it’s not breaching a hundred.
Dude! Don’t post that shit. You are shattering my protective worlds.
So in a galaxy far far away, entertainment presenters sound like white middle aged suburban parents trying to speak Urban to their 14 year old sons? That is EPIC.
As a Star Wars fan, I felt my soul die a little inside after watching that. Though, the Storm Troopers were kinda cool.
This made my head hurt. :(
When the spice girls started playing I threw up a little in my mouth.
Now I truly feel dead inside…thank you…dick.
Oh God. I don’t care what anyone says, Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers was amazing
Painful….just very….very painful
Owww, my Star Wars hurts…
HOW CAN THEY DO THIS?? are all our bases belong to them??
HAHAHHA you just gotta love the MC hammer imitation ;)
As horrible as that was, it pales in comparison to *cringe* the Bea Arthur song in the holiday special.
If you see this film, you have to make a copy of it and show it to somebody who hasn’t seen it yet.
Otherwise you die.
gotta give em credit, this was more entertaining than the animated series.
Just wow. Can’t touch this.
I actually thought Vader and the Storm Troopers was kinda cool. Then again, i’m not much of a star wars fan.
I can’t have kids now!
I’m going to have to go with Spoony on this one. There are much worse things that have happened to the Star Wars franchise than Vader dancing to MC Hammer.
I felt so dirty watching this. Thank god i’m not a die hard Star Wars fan cause this was god awful. They couldn’t really think this was cool.
Take that Dawinism!
I could only watch this video in parts. I had to stop it several times to regain my sanity.
This is fucking amazing. . . I just am lost for words. I was so entertained I couldn’t believe their costumes looked good.
I can place everyone, but I can’t place that announcer chick… anyone know who she’s supposed to be?
I’ve never been much of a Star wars fan, I’ve seen all of them sure, but I can’t remember much of the older ones and the three prequals or whatever was some of the worst movies i’ve seen, but this, THIS! I’m at a loss here, I don’t know what to say other then this actually made my head hurt, badly.
I wish the cast of whatever that was gets storm attacked by some crazed star wars fans who rip em to shreds.
Anyways, cheers from sweden, love your stuff dude ^^
At least in places that was funny.
I’d rather watch this again than the prequels…….but only just.
MC Vader was funny.
I couldn’t even finish watching it….what an abomination! T_T
Tigro, you had better be talking about the 3D series in Cartoon Network right now and not the Samurai Jack-ish Clone Wars cartoon.
Or I will nerd rage.
… yyyeah I only made it a few seconds in. Not a die hard SW fan or anything, but yeah. :p
i am damaged beyond repair, spoony damn you for ever showing this to me, i am blind, my brain turned off my eyes because it is afraid of life.
At least it was entertaining, and I gotta admit, seeing Darth Vader break out into an MC Hammer dance was kinda cool.
idk wat u guys are talkin about i liked it,it was funny lol(btw i nvr liked star wars itself)
idk wat u guys r talkin about i liked it,it was funny(btw i nvr liked the real star wars)
Holy hell! Spoony what did you make me watch! That was atrocious. Unbearable godawful piece of SHIT!
They just raped the Star Wars franchise and I don’t even like star wars all too much!
What we don’t get to see Han Solo and Luke Skywalker dancing to Milli Vanilli?!
I’ve seen this before, and I don’t remember laughing so hard in my life. Vader time FTW!
That was OK for a Disney theme-park attraction, I guess. I mean, from what I understand, the Christmas Special and the Christmas Album are considered part of the canon, so why not?
Dear god my eyes…. my eyes….. there burning…… all the people that participated in this should be carted away and stored in an artic station for all of eternity.
Wow, that was epic. I never watch Star Wars so I guess I’m just immune to being offended by that.
I facepalmed myself so hard that I had to go to the ER. I’m typing this in the waiting room.
About the only funny thing in that entire video was the first time when Vader and the Storm Troopers danced…the rest of it…
There are no words to explain the amount of rape that was just unleashed upon my intelligence.
Why did no one shoot the wookie?
MAKE IT STOP!!! WHY ARE THEY CHEERING AND CLAPPING!!! This is horrifying, Jar Jar comfort me!! Wait what the fuck did i just say!?! Yeah it is that bad, give me the holiday special and some cyanide capsules please!!
WHAT IS LOVE?
The costume design on the two hosts reminds me more of Final Fantasy than Star Wars.
The horror… the horror…
I’d hate to bring more bad news to all of this, but I’ve just had the misfortune of discovering that this “hoopla” is done annually. 2008 was ’80s themed and 2007, old-school disco.
I can feel my brain melting, it hurts.
Does Chewbacca have Kanye West Glasses on?
No Spoony, this is just bad…
I never liked Star Wars too much.. but I can say that this was probably the second best thing to come of it. Hilarious. The Storm Troopers were the best, lol.
…I secretly hope that the Death Star makes Earth it’s next target for destruction. Dantooine? SCREW THAT! The rebels are in ANAHEIM. Open fire!
I got 34 seconds in and reached for the Advil…lol…Wow…..I hope these people have children and grandchildren, and they find this one day and confront these people with it. This is far beyond “bad tattoo” or “extra in snuff film” embarrassing…lol.
I saw one before this with Vader and the Stormtroopers doing “Thriller,” zombie-ish dance moves and all.
Just…why? I feel so dirty watching this.
Well, call me Butters…but I liked it!
That was hilarious, laughed through the whole thing
Not because of the ridiculousness of the dancing but thinking
about how the Star Wars nerds would react =D
“I feel like i’ve been raped in the face!” thanks spoony.
Wow…I was raped…is it wrong that I kind of enjoyed it.
And does the What Is Love gag EVER get old?
WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN CANNOT BE UNSEEN!
Actually George Lucas has declared The Holiday Special to not be part of canon. He once said he would like to hunt down and destroy every copy of it.
Having sat though the non-riff trax Star Wars Holiday Special… Then the Riff Trax Star Wars Holiday Special… Then Episode One and Two… this wasn’t the worst Star Wars related thing I’ve endured.
I enjoyed it, watched the whole 12+ minutes. Never was a fan of star wars.
Dancing Jawas. Epic!
That was resoundingly stupid. I can’t believe anyone who likes Star Wars would be interested in seeing Darth Vader dance to MC Hammer, or Chewbacca don golden sunglasses. That’s why groups like The Wiggles exist; to dance to silly songs and entertain children. One of cinema’s greatest villains shouldn’t be exploited in this way.
“if this were canon like the Star Wars Holiday Special”
Only Star Wars Holiday Special is very much NOT canon. Do your research.
Also, I am sick, SICK of everyone complaining about Star Wars related stuff. The original trilogy was awesome, the rest is crap. Just leave it at that and stop bitching about every thing you don’t like. The proverbial dead horse at this point is now partially devoured, zombified, re-killed, vaporized, and gooey. STOP KICKING IT!
I kept expecting them to play “who let the dogs out”.
Um, I think you all need to calm down and take a step back. I love Star Wars, but I also think this is hilarious.
You’ve got to be able to laugh at the stuff you love, this being a prime example.
You should all see last year: Darth Vader, storm troopers and Emperor Palpatine dancing to Thriller! It’s still on youtube somewhere.
Oh, I agree this is funny – but there are so many angry “fans” out their who continue to complain about various new Star Wars related stuff which is crap such as the prequel trilogy and the Holiday Special (which is over thirty years old now!) that not even the Star Wars original trilogy itself matters and the point of being a Star Wars fan is to bash Star Wars.
Time Paradox? Two Leia’s and her dead mother? Ehh…Whatever…
It rarely ever happens to me, but that physically hurt to watch. Star Wars can look badass with dancing, but when the songs are so poorly chosen and the characters so terribly represented, it can resemble this abortion of an idea. I need to go play Jedi Academy to filter this crap out and replace it with good thoughts on how awesome it feels to cut things to pieces with a lightsaber.
They should just take this series out back and put it out of it’s misery with a 12 gage…
Wow, I guess Star Wars fans really don’t have a sense of humour. Chill, people. It’s nothing that hasn’t been done a million times at Cons.
This was awesome, terrible, funny, tragic, strange, and fucking insane all at once. I might just go back to watch it again.
I don’t care if it’s offensive or not, I thourougly enjoyed watching this crazy-ass shit. But you know what I’m loving the most? The pain and suffering of all you Star Wars fanboys. Quit bitching and get over it. Pussies.
Fuck yeah Stormtroopers.
Less offensive than the prequels….
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??
Why do I keep on hearing so many people trashing the prequels, it’s really gotten old, they’ve been out and done for years and years, just leave them alone.
I enjoyed it also, and fuck me sideways, I’m a Star Wars fanboy.
Seriously, we need to shoot the sacred cow, cook it up, and eat it covered in A-1 every now and again. And this most definitely does that in a less painful way than did the entire prequel trilogy. And that Aurra Sing dancer was HOT.
Though I admit, I cringed when the Cantina band started dancing to Metro Station.
That was downright pathetic………incredibly hilarious, but also very very pathetic.
Mind = blown
Eagle, please, please, for the love of GOD do not take yourself so fucking seriously. You sound like such a FUCKING TOOL when you throw in that ‘do your research’ bullshit. No one is going to stop in the middle of their one-off post of someone else’s goofy video to go “Wait, IS that canon! Shit! I can not, in good faith, post this without FINDING OUT!”
It never occurs to people who are not jackasses.
How did Vader learn to dance so well with robotic limbs??
SCIENCE OF COURSE!
This is amazingly hilarious – and only a four hour drive away from Miami! Orlando is the birthplace of all things kitsch.
The costumes, the dancing and the women (except for the one with the nasal voice) are pretty impressive.
But it’s like WTF? it’s like being impressed, yet confused. So..many…emotions..
man you americans have no shame whatsoever it seems………..but id still nail everyone of those intergalactic spice girls
What is all this talk of prequels and Christmas specials. I’m sure they would be awesome but Lucas has never made them.
All I know is I blacked out around the time the wookie appeared… I came to about 4 hours later in a hospital bed. They say they found me in the street with toy light saber, trying to force choke the world but only succeeded in herniating myself to the point that I should have died…
yet I still don’t know how I actually felt about it…
An epic win for Star Wars.
Lol wtf? Still better than the movies. And yes, I mean the original trilogy
I have never thought it was possible for a video to be capable of physically hurting me until now.
wow, I guess Lucas should be pretty upset now that people are making a mockery of his movies, wait… he already did that with Ewoks, JarJar Binks, and episode 1, 2, and 3.
Sometimes you get a script, and to say anything but “I must produce this” simply will not do.
I think they had a better set of Spice Girls… than the Spice Girls..
I my God, this stuff is the greatest! I love it and yes, I am a Star Wars fan (if that’s even possible considering the prequels and a book series in which the “Thrawn trilogy” is considered the best…). I mean, what’s even the point of being a fan of any franchise, when you can’t have fun watching shit like that?
I just threw up
I actually thought that was pretty damn funny. Not because the jokes were genuinely funny, it was just the stupidity of it all that made me laugh.
I tend to agree with Spoony on this one. This can’t do much damage to the series now, which has pretty much become a mindless kid’s cartoon.
Vader doing the MC Hammer shuffle. That’s all that needs to be said.
what just happend?
Why cant we have a proper dark and gritty clone wars or a new republic movie?
My the fans DEMAND it, you let Bioware and Dark Horse comics solve your problems Lucas!
Holy shit…that is soooo terrible. I’m going to bed…and will hopefully dream about more pleasant things.
Now i know what Obi-wan felt when he said:
‘I feel a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.’
Your damn right Obi…T.T
Cmon guys, this isn’t bad. It was really fun. Stop being “stupid fanboys/retards with no life” who cares about the pride of the greatest space saga.
I Loved it..
I could watch it for about 20 seconds… then the pain was too much
WHY would you do something like this!?
Never before have my eyes experienced such a massive wealth of insanity. You need to stop letting the doctor use his SCIENCE to post on your blog.
Don’t show this to a true Star Wars fan. He could try to make you follow him in death.
That was awesome. So far, the best thing to come out of Star Wars.
God I hate George Lucas.
..Cthulu have mercy..
..then again, this kinda took the sting off the prequels.
(translation: DO NOT WANT!!!!!!!)
Haha, I haven’t laughed so hard in a long while. I utterly lost it when Vader came out.
Ths was great, you guys need to lighten up, its just Star Wars for crying out loud!
That was frigging hilarious. I never knew Darth Vader could dance like that. :D
I’m speechless… I consider myself a man of a fair sense for reality… Untill today…
I was fun, no doubt about that, but also kind of disturbing seeing Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers dance…
This was awesome and at least three times better than the prequels.
Man, that was awesome.
And that was more enjoyable than watching those stupid new movies.
No amount of Captain Picard facepalms can accurately describe what I just watched.
this is just fucking stupid and embarrassing…
2:12 – Why are Amidala and Leia here?
YOU’VE CREATED A TIME PARADOX
I found this almost unbearably hilarious.
KILL IT WITH FIRE.
JUST . . . DON’T . . . LET . . . IT . . . LIIIIIIVVVEEEEE.
I died inside. I need social communication. D:
That was definitely a “WTF” moment.
For some strange reason, I actually enjoyed it. Maybe it helps to not be a Star Wars fan. >_>
Now this is the real Vader March. Can’t touch this *points at lightsaber*
I laughed so hard I died a little inside……
Sadly, this isn’t the worst thing to happen to Star Wars.
This leaves a disgusting metallic taste in my mouth.
My thoughts in order.
This was awesome. I felt some weird sense of closure seeing Amidala and Darth Vader together on stage.
At least there was no Jarjar!
I was going to say something, but Lair summed up my thoughts.
This was so Fail, it somehow won…
Just WTF. This is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. How could ANYONE in a million years think this was a good idea? How flipping CORNY!!
As far as the prequels go, THEY NEVER HAPPENED!!! THEY DON’T EXIST!!! To preserve my sanity, I have to believe that they were all just horrid nightmares induced by bad Chinese food…
YOU’VE WATCHED IT.
YOU CAN’T *UN*WATCH IT!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE *TALES* *OF* *W.T.F-ERY*!
This was nowhere near as embarrassing or shitty as the prequels combined.
You should see the one from 2008. Darth & the Stormtroopers did Thriller. But, I Lol’d. Hard.
MY EYES!!! ZEE GOGGLES DO NOTHING!
I went last year and they had little kids on stage doing lightsaber fights (with toys) against Vader
with a Jedi trainer. At least THAT was cool…but this….this…is…..!!
Oh god I didn’t even finish it…I felt embarrassed to watch it and there is nobody else around.
Also, leave the Star Wars fans alone, other folk. I would be double-pissed if they did some shit like this with Star Trek…have they!? I doubt it.
” Eagle, please, please, for the love of GOD do not take yourself so fucking seriously. You sound like such a FUCKING TOOL when you throw in that ‘do your research’ bullshit. No one is going to stop in the middle of their one-off post of someone else’s goofy video to go “Wait, IS that canon! Shit! I can not, in good faith, post this without FINDING OUT!”
It never occurs to people who are not jackasses.
I was only pointing out a factual error. You are the one who needs to take a chill pill. Further, Spoony is a critic, albeit a satirical one. As such, he should get his facts in order.
I’m glad I don’t take a series of already quite campy movies (excluding Empire Strikes Back; that one wasn’t quite as silly) seriously, or I’m sure I too would have had reservations about that video. Fortunately, I know better, and saw the video for what it was: a hilarious bit of camp that was at least twice as entertaining as The Phantom Menace since it didn’t try to pretend that it might get taken seriously.
I won’t stop laughing about this all day.
I watched this TWICE it made me laugh so hard.
Something has to be said for someone who can dance wearing, like, twenty pounds of fur in the late spring.
Okay Seriously, I don’t Like Star Wars and if you really find this Hilariously Funny you guys gotta go out and see a live Comedian or something. The only reason this is at all is because everyone is just so pathetic it’s not that you would be laughing with them but laughing at them.
Shit Dancing Was Shit.
OKAY NOW I’M 100 % POSITIVE THAT 90 % OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE SERIOUSLY MENTALLY RETARDED, THIS MOVIES JUST SHOWED THAT THE MOON LANDING WAS INDEED STAGED!!! IT HAS TO BE!!
I spend 35 hours a week thinking about Star Wars things for job related reason but I never though this could exist. I don’t like pop music and only Yoda can dance without looking ridiculous.
They should had put more Jedi in the show at least. There’s Ahsoka and Darth Vader, that’s all.
i feel raped
………… What the Hell was that?! I don’t think I can ever watch Star Wars ever again. Especially after having started watching other sci fi stuff like Star Trek, Red Dwarf and Doctor Who in the last year or two.
Somebody should be spinning in their grave.
When I saw the jawas I yelled for a blaster!
Jesus Fucking Christ Lord Vader really does have a HAMMER Time …
And this is what a bad job market does to people… They get jobs like this….
Also. Just wow, they pulled out the corniest cheesiest songs in existence for this. I don’t know if they missed any of the “overly popular but now cheesy” songs in our history.
..my..child hood. ..i love how the crowd is as stunned as the rest of the internet.
Holy fuck!!! why…..just…..why?!?!?!? why the fuck is darth vader dancing to mc hammer????? i thought this would be funny, but its just…….wrong
Haha, MC Vader and the Clonies was epic win.
Now, I was a kind of hardcore star wars fan, and I actually enjoyed episode 3.
Anyways, being a fan that cant even laught from this must be boring as shit, wats the point of being a fan if u cant find anything fun about star wars without getting NERD RAGE mode?
Yep. Only in Florida, and only about 50 miles from where I live.
Im confused???? Makes my head hurt.
This feels sooo wrong. I don’t know if I can look at these characters with a straight face again O_o
the things I watch for the spoony one
I must say that the costumes did look pretty good but then apparently this took place at Disney so I guess they have the money to throw at it.
Uuuuuuh…..yeah…….don’t watch unless you have a barfbag. HUUUUUGH!!!!! +_+
Jesus guys, chill. “Its wrong this. Its wrong that.”
I love SW and still Ive watched it several times, gave me a giggle or two. Nice costumes.
If you cant make fun of something you love, you have no sense of humor.
That was more entertaining than was expected.
That was pretty stupid. Still…who knew Vader could jam like that?
Jeez what’s the big deal? That was pretty entertaining – especially Vader!
That was almost wonderful…
O_ö oh my god……… thats all i can say about this
I kept hoping they’d pan over and show the audience. But since this was a promotional video it makes sense they wouldn’t want to show you just how disinterested and meager the crowd was. Wow, that was terribly embarrassing.
Still better then Star Wars: Droids.
You said this was less offensive than the prequel series….you LIIIIIIED!!!!!!!!! *sobs uncontrollably*
WHAT THE FUCKKKKKK
fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
Bless you Spoony, that was wonderful.
Ugh, people shouldn’t be allowed to rhyme oopla with anything.
I wanna goooooo….. :(
It was all worth it for Vader and the Stormtroopers. I never even knew such a show existed. Thanks for bringing it to light, Spoony!
… Okaaaay… *calmly pulls out a gun and blows my head off*
Hoopla: part of your complete breakfast.
Congratulations Spoony. You have succesfully raped my childhood beyond repair.
Priceless was Priceless :D
I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!
I mean watched. Watched is what I meant.
Anything that starts off with me wanting to click away, and then causing me not to do that, is entertaining in my opinion. Though I will not soon forget the cheese.
oh, and the guys in the audience saying “Hoopla!” after the announcers did was very funny :)
This was entertaining. Though I didn’t stick it out for the rest of it. I felt a great disturbance . . . as though thousands of fanboys suddenly shot their monitor in agony.
As far as “most damaging to Star Wars Canon” . . . no, sorry, if you ask Lucas only the six movies are canon. The books, comics, and games aren’t really included. And the Holiday Special was specifically excluded. Besides, not all of the expanded universe stunk to high heaven.
. . . just a lot of the stuff not by Timothy Zahn.
Yeah, I don’t think the Holiday Special was actually cannon. I see someone mentioned that already but what’s with him getting dissed for bringing it up? I suppose he did act a little too serious about the fact and, well…whatever. I’ll just say I agree that it’s most likely not cannon. Why isn’t it? I seem to recall reading somewhere that George Lucas is extremely embarrassed by the whole thing (and some might say that’s really saying something). While it was at the time approved by him and included the original cast (in cameos), it’s said that he was “unhappy” with the results: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars_Holiday_Special .
Actually-this IS strange: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars_Holiday_Special#Canonicity_of_the_special
The Star Wars Holiday Special is technically in the Star Wars canon, which means that the events depicted are part of the greater continuity that includes the other films, novels, comic books, video games, etc. Generally, it falls in the C-Canon in the overall Star Wars continuity.
In case you aren’t aware of what that means, C-Canon puts it in-line with the novels, comic books, video games, etc. I actually don’t think it technically hurts anything-and I doubt it’s something often drawn much upon in other Star Wars media anyway. So there you have it-and Wikipedia tends to be more accurate about things than it was in the past so if it’s inaccurate you’d think it’d of been corrected by now…
Anyway-the vid: I can’t really stand to watch the whole thing-although the MC Hammer part was pretty funny, and the “nostalgia factor” runs much deeper than the Spice Girls part-mostly I think because “Can’t Touch This” is, at least a much better song than “If You Wanna Be My Lover” (or whatever the actual title is). Anyway, i don’t think I’ll watch the rest of it-it’s just a bit too painful.
*palm to face*
As a Star Wars fan I lol’d and didn’t take it so incredibly seriously.
if Micheal bay did star wars
Oh cmon that was awesome guys even for the corny value. I really only watched the Darth Vader Hammer time; and the last 2 minutes with the Storm Troppers, haha.
Is it wrong to have enjoyed that?
This made me happy. There are more of these though. In one of em Darth and the Stormtroopers did a pretty cool dance to Thriller.
I’m just glad they kept the prequel characters to a minimum.
@ EvilDolly: you had best be fuckin’ trolling, that was not Thriller and if you really think so…god help you.
Anyway, that female announcer’s voice is ear-splitting. Still, suffering through her voice was totally worth seeing Vader and the stormtroopers dancing to MC Hammer. That all-girl group was pretty damn hot too, actually <_<
So sad yet sooo funny at the same time
NOBODY CAN TOUCH DARTH VADER
I’m not going to lie I actually like watching this video
chwey with kanye west shades and darth vader and storm troopers doing “you can’t tough this” and the last storm trooper bobbing his head to “what is love” just like in SNL skit
I can’t believe what I just saw it’s just so… unbelievably bad!! I want to meet the person or people that came up with this and say “man this would be a great idea if we had people dress in star wars costumes and dance to crappy music.”
I’m really amused at all the commenters who seem so shocked and offended by this. Oh yeah, dear God, it was awful and cheesy (hilariously so, IMO), but come on, are you *really* still able to take Star Wars seriously? Midichlorians, guys. Midichlorians and gungans.
Vader and the Stormtroopers were awesome
I am a big Star Wars hell I have a Vader doll sitting two feet from me but Jesus Christ is no one allowed to have fun with Star Wars any more and the really strange thing is that I guarantee that if this, at least Vader and the Stormtroopers, had appeared on Robot Chicken: Star Wars suddenly it would have been fucking awesome
@Sniktbub …. he meant this video……
Love people who scream “hoopla” in the background.
“Chewbacca the Original Gangsta”?
This is… scary…
Fucking hell, some 1 deserves to be shot for this monstrosity, I’d rather watch Jar Jar for and hour than this pish, I bet when they where handing what people did in this, all the people who had there face covered where probebly thinking “Thank fuck no 1 will know who i am”
Spoony… What did you do? You unleashed this terror on the world and… Oh God… I love Star Wars but… This… The Star Wars nerd in me is crying and is huddled in the corner chanting “find a happy place” while the normal nerd in me is screaming out “Oh Hammer don’t hurt em!” while throwing streamers. What have you done Spoony?!? What have you done?
Which is more pathetic?
Or the millions of fanboys crying/ranting over it like its supposed to be taken seriously?
My vote goes to the fans.
I was more a fan of Vader doing Thriller, but still.. X3
At least it’s not like there’s a stormtrooper doing the Caramelldasen..
What the hell ist that? Why do they do that? What what WHAT??
Totally agree with u.
Did I Just Went back to the CDI years?
Someone Shoot Me…
I don’t know what everyone is complaining about… This video is made of pure WIN.
Well that stain won’t come out of my soul.
What is everyone complaining about? Okay, I’m a huge Star Wars fan (I have a friggin’ tattoo of the insignia of the Rebel Alliance on my shoulder) but I wasn’t offended by this video at all, and I actually thought some of it was funny. At least it knew what it was: simple, campy fun and it didn’t take itself seriously. All the fanboys whining about how this “ruined” Star Wars need to lighten up. Star Wars was ruined when its own creator started splicing footage of Hayden Christensen into his older movies and gave us an extended musical number featuring a CGI Sy Snoodles. I mean, he turned one of the most iconic villains in film history into a 9-year old kid who shouts “Yippee!”, and you think this is the death of the franchise? This little bit of cheese couldn’t possibly rape Star Wars any more than George Lucas already has.
I wonder if the guy who plays Vader comes into the dressing room after every performance screaming ‘oh what bitches, looks like Vader wins again’
Firstly, that made me laugh and cry at the same time. It was like tickle-torture.
Secondly, don’t the voices sound insanely familiar? I think the beginning announcer sounded like the one from the Make My Video Kriss Kross “IT’S THE PAC MAN WHO AIN’T NO WHITE MAN” and the girl, Oombla? She reminded me of the talking skull from the same review! IT’S FREAKING ME OUT A LITTLE INSIDE.
@billyzane, If you listen at the end he says its Disney world, not exactly the smallest or most low budget theme park in the world and I’m sure they paid a lot of money for the licence. Anyway I’m not a huge Star Wars fan so cant say much but I liked it thought it was pretty good except for the 2 presenters who made my ears bleed.
I feel kind of sick.
Seriously? they just raped my understanding of an amazing movie series
I watched for 2 1/2 seconds, laughed uncontrollably,gagged, and went WTF.
watched the whole thing.
It occurs to me that if the prequel trilogy had just been an extended version of this, people might have actually enjoyed them.
sure it’s stupid, but that is what it is trying to be.
unlike the movies that were stupid while trying to be serious.
I found that funny and entertaining.
…What the fuck just happened?
Y’know, Vader was force-choking people at the drop of the hat in the Original Trilogy. Why, in the name of all that is holy, are those pain-in-the-ass hosts still enjoying their non-crushed larynxes?
I will admit the stormtroopers at the end totally kicked ass, though.
Almost painfully to watch, seriously, it began to have serious agony when the Spice Girl song came…. And yeah, i have hard to remove the hand from my face xD
Well I,m scared and stunned.
Please no more
wat were the songs they used in this?
I realized I was facepalming throughout the entire video.. Oh god..
Dark Vader with dont touch this >.>
excuse me i mean cant touch this lol
Chewie in da house! Those Jawas where givin it large.
seriously though, Start wars ain’t got nothing on Lord of the Rings (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2f86R_Z0_xI)
I wasn’t really amused until the Darth Vader part, then I laughed my ass off for the entire rest of the video. This is in Orlando? In LA we have the Jedi Academy at Disneyland where they teach little kids to be Jedi. It’s really cute.
Spoony likes this yet thinks ROTF is the worst movie of all time…..
The Prequel series is not offensive to Star Wars at all, in fact, it is a very welcomed addition to the series. But this is sure offensive! As is the holiday special!
thanks george lucas, for selling out and ruining my childhood, i hope you die in a firy explosion
I’ve always been a Star Wars fan and thought this was hilarious. Stupid and corny as fuck, buy hilarious nevertheless.
Whoever gets “offended” by this NEEDS to go outside more.
You watched it and you can’t unwatch it. WTF have they done?
The rapping Jawas were fucking awesome, I cracked up at every random “ootainee!”
The spice girls lipsynching part…eh, didn’t really find it particularly amusing
But Vader and the Storm Troopers…easily stole the show, one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen…sometimes something is so dumb it goes completely around the bend and lands smack dab in ‘awesome-ville’, that was one of those things.
LMAO, that was hilarious. Vader dancing to “Can’t Touch This” made my night. Some people need to lighten up.
lol At least you have to admit their costumes are pretty good. I mean damn that guy playing Chewie is either really tall or on platform shoes. Also while I don’t like spice girls music those chicks seemed pretty hot.
This is more entertaining than the prequels.
This is aggressively, abusively painful to watch. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Oh come on, they do this every year and it’s always just for fun. I think they’ve been doing this since 2006 or something. I still can’t believe they did meatspin at 8:37. Vader always wins the Dance-off. Never fails.
I guess im not understanding why people seem so upset over this little theme park show. The star wars movies will always be some of my most favorite of all time. So what if they make a spoof about it. Get real! Its not the first spoof, look at spaceballs. In reading the comments above people seem way too critical about this. I mean wow get a life, and pull your head out. They movie is fiction, and you didnt create it, so who cares.
Really? THIS is what gets Star Wars fans panties in a twist? Parody?
Not a terrible cartoon franchise, lackluster prequels and a creator with his hand on the “remake” button? It’s some humor at STAR WARS WEEKENDS at Disney? Wow.
I’ve actually seen this bit live, but a few years back with Ashoka, obviously, not being a part of the cast. It’s just for fun. Seriously, there is far more cringe worthy material that’s actually CANON to Star Wars.
Come on people, lighten up. :P
I expect some GIFs to pop up within the week.
I am speechless.
I didn’t think it was that bad, though it murdered the Star Wars saga…
The stuff nightmares are made of.
I’ve only watched half of the video, im afraid to press play anymore, this is so horrible.
Even Gods facepalm is not enough to express the suckage.
I’m not even a fan of star wars and I feel offended by this bull shit.
It’s actually really impressive to dance this good in the stromtrooper and vader costumes. All the other costumes looks really good (ok maybe not the jawas, I guess they ran out of midgets or something).
And I can’t really see how anyone can be truly offended by this after the prequels and Clone Wars movie.
Everyone here and Spoony himself regularly make fun of fans of certain franchises for taking shit too seriously. I hope that everyone who feels “offended” is just joking, otherwise you’re just a huge hypocrite.
This video was pretty damn good. They put alot of effort into the show, the dancing and the costumes. Most of the jokes were also pretty good. I wouldn;t mind seeing that kind of thing live.
That was horribly disturbing.
Gotta love how the croud keeps shouting ‘HOOPLAAAAAAA’
Ok, I’ll admit that was totally pointless and humliating, and I was laughing the whole time, but I actually liked it. Hmmm…must be something wrong with me. :/
T-their souls… what happened to their souls?!
I really hate stuff like this, people screaming and shouting to entertain kids.
And this Is where I get flash-backs to any comedy that has had the subject up, where the actors are cranky and completely down because their life sucks. but hey that’s just me talking.
poor, poor bastards.
That’s not true!
Wahahaha…. wait, I’m the only one that liked this? I especially loved the small dance off between Amidala and Vader.
And hey, I’m a pretty big star wars fan. I played KOTOR and SWG
The Vader and Stormtroopers part was the only good part.
Oh and the vader troop did a thriller dance in 2008.
At first this was the so lame but the part with Vader and the Storm Troopers was fucking hilarious and kept me watching haha.
I hate myself, becouse i’m a member of the human race who came up with this stuff. Where can i recall my membership?
Look, when something like this comes along, you can either be butthurt and BAW about it, or you can revel in madness. Pity so many of you chose the former, because it’s really quite hysterical when you choose the latter.
Omg, i usually don’t laugh. But i couldn’t hold back on the storm troopers.
Needs Leia in the brass bikini, Im effing dissapointed.
I feel this needs to be said………BIG LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT!
I couldnt watch it all, too embarrassing.
Storm troopers tore it up though.
When they were talking to Vader, I was just waiting for him to go on a killing spree…
This is far more offensive… never mind.
The prequel series at least TRIED to not make Vader into a complete bitch… At least making one of THE villains that was just able to kill indiscriminately dance like a moron has some comedic value.
The chick in the red jumpsuit had a really nice ass. The only redeeming quality really.
That is great! Can’t stop watching it. Absolutely brilliant.
All you fan boy who hated this need to chill out and develop a sense of humor.
that was aweome…..
the last guy was the best ….
You consider this less offensive than the prequels? YOU CONSIDER THIS LESS OFFENSIVE THAN THE PREQUELS?!!!
I guess I have different standards, but I’m the kind of guy that considers Darth Vader rapping and Princess Leia singing pop crap a little more offensive then anything the prequels have dished out. And I’m including Jar Jar Binks.
Since i have never really watched any of the star war series movies (just bits and pieces from the net) i found it funny. :P
Haha! That shit was great! You butthurt faggots should calm the fuck down. I’m the biggest Star Wars geek I know, and I thought this shit was funny as fuck. It’s not meant to be taken seriously and, in my opinion, is actually funnier than the retarded Robot Chicken and Family Guy Star Wars parodies.
Also, those lookalikes for the female characters were incredibly good considering.
Brownie points for anyone who can identify Zam Wesell in the group without feeling the pains of wasted youth.
Still better than the PT…at least this was entertaining…
1: WTF?! O.o
This is rape! why god why??
Being a Disney Cast Member, I was one of those poor workers standing on the left in the back. I remember being insulted then, and I’m still insulted now.
Quit complaining, it was awesome!
Well, I did feel a bit unclean at first. Then I remembered: it’s targeted at children and all ages. It’s supposed to have large amounts of overacting, strange out-of-character moments, and random things. Of course you’d never see a dance-off in the films. That’s what makes it so entertaining! I think the thing is, here, is just… don’t take it seriously. :P That’s my opinion. I was laughing so hard when Vader started dancing to MC Hammer.
Also, I agree with some of the previous comments. The costumes and likenesses were very well-done. ^_^ They obviously put alot of effort into it, so you’ve gotta give them credit for that, at least. :) Thanks for posting this, Spoony!
How is this offensive? It is comedy.
This even was really cool. I like start wars, but how this is offensive? It’s very funny and enjoyable… The end was spectacular!
cool uniforms… yeeah im gonna watch paint dry now…
I think I just threw up a little bit…
I know everyone is going to hate me for posting twice in a row, but after thinking about it, it’s not that bad. When I say not that bad I mean not that bad in the sense that they were probably trying to appeal to a large group of people, and also that they didn’t want to spend to much time and effort to make it truly epic or Star Wars worthy (whatever that means). But I still threw up a little bit.
The costumes were kinda cool, but this is brimming with entertainment designed for 4 year olds.
What the fuck……? That was AWFUL! I was like O___O all the time. That even worse than russian fan movies.
“WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, WHO ALLOWED THIS? You are telling me George Lucas signed off for someone to use the Star Wars licence on some theme park bullshit……”
I know, man, but I think it’s pretty much anything goes after the creation of Jar Jar!
lol so, pretty such i just watched the coolest thing ever.
Couldn’t you have just posted a video of my mom being anally raped by Jar Jar Binks? That would have been less painful and less emotionally scarring.
Seriously, who the hell thought this was a good idea?
could sum1 tell me the name of the songs they used?
how could you possibly not like that? i laughed the entire time which was the point of it. even though im probably laughing for a different reason than they wanted it still did what they wanted.
Hahaha mind rape! Doctor Insano must have posted this while on Spoonies computer
I disagree with most on this one. I thought it was pretty funny.
Well..One of them was “If you wanna be my lover” by Spice Girls. There was Backstreet Boys “Everybody (Backstreets Back)” and “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer. And also “Hot n’ Cold” by Katty Perry. And a song named “Let’s Dance” but i don’t remember the artist.
I find your lack of updates disturbing
Well, the Hyperspace Hoopla doesn’t even hold a candle to Leonard Nimoy’s The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins, Spock ears and all.
Everyone should fly down to Orlando, FL immediately in order to go to this show. After all, Hammer, Beyonce, and the Spice Girls could all use the money from the royalties they must surely be getting from this production. As for this “show,” I do think that Spoony is right in saying that it’s better than the Holiday Special. Bea Arthur singing in a bar in her man-voice, cannon or not, was only bearable for me with a rifftrax playing with it… Yes, this was made for dumb tourists, but it’s more fun than any of the prequels. Which Jake Lloyd, who played Anakin as a kid, has recently given an interview about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtkM2JPcHPo
I have to go scrub my brain now. That was…..was….heinous!
That was brilliant!!
“Let’s Dance” by Lady Gaga
“Right Round” by Flo Rida
This is both beautiful and incredibly painful, and something Disney would do. Makes me wish I could go to Disneyworld to watch it. The crowds reactions were probably just as epic as the dancing was. (Out of character, oh hells yes, not fun, fff, LIES AND SLANDER.)
I don’t know why everyone hates this soo much, its ridiculous but in a funny way. I only really started laughing out loud with the darth vader bit and the stormtroopers, I don’t know what it is but if I see a stormtrooper dancing and acting like he’s happy when he’s supposed to be a bloodthirsty killer it makes me laugh. Any way I Think kids would like this alot and many adults with a sense of humor would like this and think it was funny. LOL, maybe I’m just too old and nostalgic.
errr….bit reason im not that much into star wars. only one i really found epic in all rights, was episode four. or rather, the very first one…..wth darth vader, and obi wan, you know…..man, talk about being chronilogically confused.
unrealated, but importante!
check this out, marzgurl points out the pointless ending to FinalFantasy 8!
What is actually funny, is that they have a pretty big audience. Hehe, who the hell would travel anywhere so see that. Some of the girls looked pretty good and had some sync, but the others were laughably bad. So much that I caught myself with a smile a couple of times. Still; better than Star Wars I. THAT, was offensive.
This.. This made me feel dirty just like Twilight made me feel dirty…
Is it natural to chew a hole in the side of your own mouth upon viewing this video?
Is it bad thing that I liked that?
This is horrifying…and yet…I can’t look away!
Stupid and funny, why is everyone raging so much? O_o It’s just silliness, what’s wrong with that?
Some of them dance pretty nicely for the dead , i.e. Vader, the Bounty hunter from episode two, Padme/Amidala)
My soul hurts!
I couldn’t watch the whole thing…I made it to the second minute and had to turn it off.
Oh. My. GOD.
What has been seen… cannot be unseen.
Please make it go away…
The next time a Star Wars fan tells me how much better they think it’s better than Star Trek, and they bring up Enterprise, I’m showing them this…
it’d be bearable without them two straight from one of those groups that preform at elementary schools..
When i watched this i felt like i had just woke up and my face is wet my ass is burning and then i realize that im in a hotel room with a trany
… … …wtf?
I am not a huge fan of star wars, but like it ok, and what all you fan boys have to realize, is that this is supposed to be funny. its supposed to be cheesy and corny. its not at all serious.
That said, I have two things to say, WTF, and aaaahahahahahahahahahahaha
this was hilarious, hadn’t had a laugh this good for a while
8:30 my hurts burned
But other than that i found this rather amusing, and i am a big star wars fan, its all just a bit of slighty strange fun XD
Currently writing this from beyond the grave with the aid of mind control. I died smashing my head into a wall repeatedly in an attempt to give myself amnesia after watching this.
kill me… wha… how… im having a fucking breakdown….
Im glad to see that Im not the only insane person in the world..
This is EPIC!
I have to admit, they got the dance from Beyonce’s song down perfectly…and it must be hard to do the hammertime in those costumes…not much mobility.
That was ace!
Trust me, there are worse skits, these guys now what they are doing.
It was cool and hilarious!
Prequel sucked big time
again with the being so weird that i can't look away. LMAO and storm troopers dancing is old and has been done, although i don't think i have ever heard backstreet boys put to them dancing before. this is just odd and proof that some people just need a girl friend LOL j/k

Man, this makes “whip whip stir whip” seem sensible.
I hate dance music. I love Star Wars. That was extremely hard to sit through. It was like Experience Bij
Did anyone else go “If you wanna be my lover, hoak hogan” in their head? I did :P
Chewbacca the original gangsta, Darth Vader dancing to can’t touch this, Sweet Mary mother of God I hate Lucas more and more every single day. Although at this point, my inner child already shot himself in the head while jumping off a cliff just after he swallowed a bunch of pills and slit his wrists once I was done watching Phantom Menace so it doesn’t matter anymore.
This is the true Bij
You guys don’t seem to get, that Star Wars is stupid. It hasn’t always been, there once was a time where space sci-fi was in peoples interest, and they found Star Trek and Star Wars to be a fresh input. But today it is just stupid, outdated. Star Wars is greek mythologies in spaaaaaaaace, and then what? It’s nothing, fairy tales. Star Trek’s sci-fi is stupid when you look at it today too, but atleast Star Trek have messages and great morals that is timeless.
They caught Leia and Padme and sentenced them to the Spice mines of Kessel??
And here I thought Tarkin would just execute them.
I wonder if the guy who plays Vader ever dances on his cape by accident and falls on his ass.
