Star Wars - Hilarious Spoof!

In summary, the conversation revolved around the hilarity of a Star Wars spoof video, with one person unable to watch it due to low system memory and technical difficulties with their Mac computer. Another person suggested downloading the video, but the Mac user was unable to do so due to compatibility issues. This led to a discussion about the lack of proper codecs on Mac computers.

Wow, now I don't need to see the actual movie. :rofl: That was hilarious--I especially like the poop-head sketch, which would cause major intergalactic war between many morons.

"A boob?"... "You swing too hard!"

Classic. I'm not usually a fan of the spoofs, but that one had me laughing.

Nuts! I got a 'low system memory' message and couldn't load the video.:grumpy: I figure it's better to wait until I can see it instead of just listening to it now. How much space does it take? I've got 95meg onboard and 150meg virtual.

You can download the wmv. It's about 8.5 meg.

No I can't. :grumpy: It appears to be a Mac-unfriendly site. No memory message this time, but the player that came up is one that I've run into before and it never shows the video part of a clip. As for trying to save it, it says to right click. Unless there's some key/mouse combination that I don't know about, I can't do it with a 1-button mouse. :grumpy: :grumpy:
Thanks for the suggestion, though. :smile:
