Kyle Shearrer created a great story about Storm Troopers assembling a Christmas Tree using nothing but a digital camera. Continue reading Happy Holidays Star Wars Fans
The Bad Lip Reading YouTube channel can be good at times. Their bad lip reading of the classic trilogy is pretty funny, especially when characters just start singing for no reason.
All the accents and pronunciations are great (C-3P0 is Indian, R2 is a little kid, Chewie can talk, Bib Fortuna is a black guy, Admiral Ackbar is a fish) it just goes on and on. Worth the watch.
