Just when "Somebody That I Used To Know" was starting to fade into Top 40 history, a few clever "Star Wars" fanatics made a parody video that we just can't ignore. After all, it asks the all too common question, "What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know?"
"Here's our spoof of Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used to Know', done 'Star Wars' style, of course," explained the Teddie Films team on YouTube. "It's a story of heartbreak to which Star Wars fans everywhere can relate. And even with all that heartache, it's still a better love story than 'Twilight.'"
Here's a sample of Darth Gotye's verse:
But you didn't have to change it all. Make 'em like they never happened and the fans are nothing I don't even need your love But you treat me like a Bantha and that feels so rough No you didn't have to make them blow Have your friends direct your movies and they'll turn out better. You think that you don't need them though What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know?
And here's George Lucas' response:
Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over. I had them believing that the first three films were really done. But Star Wars will be done my way I don't care what you have to say I think that they should let it go And they'll never get the Blu-Ray of the Star Wars that you used to know
The music was arranged by Israel Curtis, who also voiced Darth, while Lucas' vocals came from Ryan Richardson. The lyrics were witten by Eddie King, Jeremy Warner and Joseph Winter.
