72. Star Wars in Just 99 Seconds

Nia's Blogging and Vlogging Website

If you are one of the few people living on the planet who hasn't actually watched Star Wars, or perhaps you just want a quick refresher of the story, then this is the video for you. It is simply a summary of the films in less than two minutes, 99 seconds to be precise.

Uploaded to YouTube's extremely popular and heavily subscribed 'Paint' channel, this song shows two men (they are actually the same person, thanks to some clever editing magic and green screens) singing their stories to the main Star Wars music.

Here's an extract of the very clever lyrics relating to the first film, which confusingly is now the fourth film, after the release of the three slightly disappointing prequels:

Episode IV: A New Hope
Leia hides plans, Vader chokes a man,
Alderaan's gone and Han shoots first.
You're my only hopie Obi Wan.
Look, a small moon,
That's a space ship,
Worshipfullness, walking carpet.
This princess better pay out,
Use the force, Luke,
Close your eyes and shoot.
