Have you guys heard about this?

*Using his school's AV equipment, a 15-year-old, chubby Star Wars fan videotapes himself doing martial arts/Jedi moves with a golf ball retriever pole in place of a light saber.

*Kid forgets to remove the tape, other students find it, post it online.

*Within days, hundreds of thousands of people see it and laugh their asses off.

*Then, a guy who works for a software company takes the video and adds special effects and music, creating a hilarious short. Even more people laugh their asses off.

You can find links to download the videos below. It might take some time, but it's worth it, I think.

*And the happy ending...some nerds united and an online fundraiser was done for the Star Wars Kid, and he's getting four grand cash and an iPod from his new 'fans.'

It's hilarious.

If you go to the first link you don't even have to download it -- it's right there (if you have a broadband connection).

Also check out the other two flicks on that webpage ("The Cockroach" and "Midnight in Front of the Fridge").

Never doubt the power of the internet eh? Now that we have a video of a kid playing at being a jedi knight, if only we can catch a video of that kid called Bush Jr playing at being president...:wink:

That video is rivalled only by the Matrix 2 as the best thing I have seen in the past two days.

I like how he slips on the yellow cloth and hits the black curtain, but just keeps right on getting after it.

He could be a Mighty Warrior !
