There's Already a Hilarious 'Star Wars' Parody of That BBC Interview Snafu

It's hard to find someone who hasn't seen the adorable video of a pair of children bursting in on their father while he's engaged in an incredibly serious remote interview with the BBC. There's so much about the short clip—from the daughter's swagger to the dad's desperate attempts to stay focused while chaos breaks out all around him to the mother (or nanny)'s frantic attempts to fix the scene— that has made this video the biggest viral sensation of 2017 so far.

So, naturally, there's a Star Wars parody now.

Made by Jack of All Genius, the short video recreates the original clip with Darth Vader as the interrupted interviewee and two droids—R2-D2 and BB-8—taking the role of the kids. Created through the use of greenscreen technology to keep the original clip's bedroom setting intact, but filled with little Easter Eggs for fans of Star Wars (such as a "Never Forget" poster displaying the destruction of the first Death Star), this parody is pure gold.



This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to amazing Star Wars parodies—who could forget, for example, teddiefilm's parody of Somebody that I Used to Know by Gotye, which mocks the various changes that George Lucas made to the original trilogy? Or, delving into the history of the internet, the Star Wars Gangsta Rap, which won an award from the official fan film competition that was held by Lucasfilm?

And, of course, if we're going to talk about Star Wars parody videos, there's nothing like like the granddaddy of the entire genre: The Saga Begins by Weird Al.



Yeah, that came out in 1999.
