MTSBWY: Billy Dee and Patton Oswalt do ‘Star Wars’ karaoke

I’ve seen some ludicrously funny things in my day, but this is really a piece of work. This is just one of those things you have to experience to believe. I guess the video is an ad for Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and it features Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) hitting up Karaoke Night at the Cantina on Tatooine. Lando performs a embarrassingly bad rendition of Jason Schwartzman‘s song, “West Coast.” The video also features appearances by Schwartzman, Patton Oswalt, Carrie Keagan, Chris Hardwick, and Mike Phirman. Check the weirdness out.

MTSBWY: Animated Version of Patton Oswalt’s Brilliant Star Wars Pitch

  If you’re a Star Wars fan and a Parks and Recreation fan, you probably remember the episode not so long ago when Patton Oswalt visited and delivered an incredible 8+ minute improve about his idea plt for Star Wars: Episode VII. It was hilarity at its best. Now, Isaac Moores has created an animation for the entire rant/skit which you can find here: See the original here: Patton Oswalt himself saw the animated filibuster and tweeted to Moores, as well as sent his “minions” to give the talented Moores some more followers. He went from 60 to over 1,00 in one day! Apparently spending 5 full days animating to improvised dialogue is a good way to spend ones time. Hello 1000 new followers. — Isaac Moores (@izacless) May 19, 2013 Hello Isaac and thank you for your awesome contribution!

Well, just dip it in carbonite!” “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…there were infomercials!” Check out this funny video by The Gamer Chick that shares some great infomercials from the Star Wars universe.

Was the Death Star an Inside Job?

Video creator Graham Putnam describes the video as “an examination of some questionable events and circumstances leading up to the destruction of the Death Star, through the eyes of an amateur investigative journalist within the Star Wars galaxy. The focus is mainly on the connections between the people who created and operated the Death Star and those responsible for destroying it.” The seven-minute video documents “that fateful day” when “the terrorist organization known as the Rebel Alliance blew up the Death Star with a squad of single manned fighters … destroying the prominent political target. “But could the destruction of the Death Star have been an inside job perpetrated by top-ranking Imperial officials and royalty?” Comments on the video’s YouTube site were getting rambunctious and critical Tuesday morning: “Why does the narrator keep calling the destroyed planet ‘Alderbraun’?” … “Aldebran!? Have you even seen the movies!?” Another comment recalled President…

Mtsbwy: Star Trek Meets Star Wars

Star Trek Meets Star Wars

We all know that J.J. Abrams was officially selected to direct Star Wars: Episode 7. Since he also has an involvement in the new Star Trek films, it will be interesting to see how he does on each. Even funnier, however, would be to see a merge of the two. This is exactly what The Verge has done in this hilarious thread that also invites you to post your own photo response. Make sure you scroll down through all the comments as well as the post itself.   Source: The Verge   Star trek and Star Wars have always been mashed up. Check out more examples below:

Harrison Ford Star Wars Episode 7 Contract Negotiations

These sketches are made by my good friend David Ward and his team over at  HUMORdy are a collection of comedians, actors, and filmmakers from Austin, TX. and they have quite a bit of funny material on youtube already. Check out there youtube channel here if you want a good laugh. Disney bought Lucasfilm for over 4 billion dollars. They immediately announced plans to do a new trilogy of Star Wars films. This is the story of the heroic Disney executives assigned the task of getting Harrison Ford to sign on as Han Solo in the new Star Wars movies. It took they guys  about 5 days to write the scripts, one day to shoot all three, then probably two weeks to edit them. They don’t currently have any more Star Wars parodies planned, but I’m sure we’ll do more in the future. Remember to follow these guys on Facebook.

Now here is something you don’t’ see every day: An orchestra flash mob in the Wallrafplatz, in the center of Cologne in Germany.  I have always been a huge fan of flashmobs, but I have never seen a full out  orchestral flash mobs — that play the Star Wars Theme. I also love that they brought both harp and timpani.
