A couple of days ago we received an email from YouTuber OneMinuteGalactica which was both unassuming and incredibly intriguing at the same time. Here, judge it yourself:

Hi. I was just wondering if you'd be interested in linking to a new Star Wars video I posted. It's sort of what Star Wars would be like if the dialogue had been written by the philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre.

Star Wars and Existentialism? I still can't quite work out whether OMG is a genius or a wierdo, but his video certainly works, adding a typically Satrian darkness and bleakness to proceedings that fits quite well with the Dark Side's overall ethos.

OMG has re-dubbed a section of Episode IV: A New Hope in French, with Sartre's philosophical musings appearing in English subtitles to accompany it. And the result is surprisingly fun for someone who mourns the pointless nature of existence. Obviously didn't have Happy Meals back then,

Wrap your eyes and brains around this one...
