"If you're going to videotape your Star Wars fighting skills on a school camera, remember to remove the cassette when you're done."

Check out this young man's video on waxy.org. It seems that he recorded this on a school camera and left the tape in.

First download the video linked as "embarrassingly good video" and watch it. Then check out the ever-helpful internet community's remix, also available on the same page.

He really works himself into a lather, making lightsaber sounds and tripping over himself.

it's brilliant. I've already commented on both videos on other message boards but I will say I laughed hard. But I still feel kind of sorry for the guy. He was just doing something he loved.

I'll admit to it - if I had access to a camcorder I probably would have pretty embarrassing stuff from my childhood. Some of my fave comments from that site: "And still, it's better than Attack of the Clones" "Okay, wow....I find the fourth little segment the most amusing because he reminded me of a spastic ballerina. On quaaludes. If you're gonna do the whole flail the metal pole thing, at least try not to lift your legs...it scares the children. Also, I'm surprised he didn't take out the camera at least once, considering that he had zero balance, plus the little swagger he always seems to have when walking into frame. PURE GOLD!" "I vividly recall the embarrasment I felt when my sister walked in on me performing my own version of "Flashdance: What A Feeling!" in my room, so many years ago." "And at times he almost looks like he knows what he's doing. It's hypnotic, really." --- I sure hope this kid has a sense of humor about the whole thing. Actually I hope he gets some form of 15 minutes of fame from this.

Whoa. My mind was in the gutter and was happily surprised that I didn't watch what I was afraid I was going to. Whew!

Anyway, that is hilarious. His jumps and moves were so graceful. Posted Image

All I can say is, thank goodness the kid was fixated on Star Wars and not something like Last Tango in Paris.

There is probably an embarrasing film/video like this for everyone... I know I have one and no you can't see it. Posted Image

Dunno, I saw this linked from somewhere else, and while it is hilarious, especially the remix, I'm not 100% convinced he was doing Star Wars. Doesn't really sound like lightsaber sounds to me, more like the whooshing sounds of kungfu films.

:lol: That was classic. Love the remix. The internet community is just one big smar ass remark. The least the kid could do was dress up in costume.

I agree with John on that... doesn't sound like he's doing lightsaber sounds. I thought "hmmm... guy with a quarterstaff who is gonna bag himself REAL soon..." Posted Image

Although the "remix" was funnier than hell.

I had the whole office crying this afternoon -- thanks kid! I hope he takes this well. Maybe his fame will lead to something good, like Leno will invite him on the show, or George Lucas will invite him to Skywalker ranch. I just hope he isn't tramatized by this. I made me laugh and that's a good thing.

That is the funniest thing I have seen all year. The odd part is I think it is totally cool, the kid was 'in the zone' and obviously living out a fantasy. He's totally inept, but definitely living the dream. The little swagger he makes in and out of the frame before the action is classic... I like this comment: "beware Luke Piestalker"

I'm certain I looked like a much bigger geek on some of my teenage videos... which is why I'll be burning them for my own protection tonight. Posted Image
