As much as we all love them, I think it’s time for nerd nation to speak the truth:
YouTube Light Saber battles are kinda played out.
Kittens, babies, turtles, old ladies, Cholos, Politicians — any kid with time to kill and a copy of AfterEffects can make this happen, and with a world of Star Wars nerds eagerly clicking on anything even remotely related to the movies — the overflow was inevitable. Sure every now and then you’ll see a new twist on the thing that reminds you what’s so great about the idea in the first place, but then all you have to do is look over at the related links to find eleventy billion less inspired versions featuring the family dog fighting the mailman.
What we really need is a new angle. A fresh, untapped way to casually enjoy fanvideos without feeling like you’ve seen it all before. And I think I’ve finally discovered it:
First off, what cleaning service has employees like this? There’s no way you’re not convincing me that this scenario didn’t originate with Chewie perusing the casual encounters part of Craigslist: Kashyyyk.
With all the jiggling and wet t-shirt action going on, I found myself actually annoyed when the lightsabers broke out.
Adventure, excitement, bras.. a jedi craves not these things.
Btw, my absolute favorite part of this video is when things start to happen and Chewbacca’s eyes start darting back and forth like, “Oh man, is this gonna happen? I think this is gonna happen, oh hell yes this is HAPPENING!”
We’re all fans of something a little too much for our own good — the web (and society, to an extent) prefers things that way it would seem — but are there any facets of your particular favorite show/band/movie fanboy culture that you’ve just had your fill of and would be happy if you never had to see them again?
Speak on it.
