The YouTube users who go by the name of Teddie Films made a hilarious parody called The Star Wars That I Used To Love that has gone viral.
It's almost impossible to escape Gotye and Kimbra's Somebody That I Used To Know. Its YouTube video has over 250 million views and you probably just heard it five minutes ago, so it's no surprise that when Teddie Films decided to make fun of the song people love it. The Star Wars interpretation already has over 800 thousand views after just being posted for a few days.
Teddie Films got it right when they picked Gotye's hit song, which is insanely catchy even if you hate it. The song pokes fun at George Lucas and his decision to remake his iconic movie in 3D.
The parody begins, Now and then I think of when I was in power/ Like choking people with the force until they died/ But then you told them all my history/ And took away my masculinity/ And had my character portrayed by subpar actors.
Toward the end of the parody a painted man, presumably supposed to be George Lucas, comes into the screen, mocking Kimbra from the original song.
He begins with a shoulder shrug and sings, Now and then I think of all the times I screw fans over/ I had them believing that the first three films were really done/ But Star Wars will be done my way/ I don't care what they have to say/ I think that they should let it go/ And they'll never get a blu-ray of the star wars that you used to know.
Not convinced by Lucas the Skywalker actor answers, But you didn't have to change it all /No more prophets, no more practical effects or nothing/ I don't even need your love/ You treat me like a whopper and it feels so cold/ No You didn't need to sell your soul/ Do we really need to watch them all again in 3D?/ Jaja was an all-time low/
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know, the movies that I used to know?
