Remember Teddie Films? They were the guys behind the Kesha/Star Wars mashup that went viral not so long ago? As it turns out, they're back with an all new Star Wars parody called "Droidfriend." And before we go any further, I can say without hesitation that it's actually better than the original. Of course, considering the original is Justin Bieber's hit song "Boyfriend," that's not saying much. But even so, there's something genuinely pleasing about watching C3P0 prancing around in a Justin Bieber wig while serenading a Twi'lek lady about the fact that he's a god on Endor.
If you don't know what the hell I'm talking about, you're not going to like this video.
Produced by IGN's YouTube channel, START, the video goes to painstaking lengths to replicate Bieber's original. However, instead of watching Bieber and his band of backup dancers moving all about, we're treated to our favorite Star Wars characters partying hard with Luke Skywalker's iconic X-34 Landspeeder. Han, Leia and the rest of the gang are joined by the requisite band of hot girls clad in sexy Star Wars gear. Have any of these girls actually watched the Star Wars films? Doubtful. Do I care? Not at all.
This is the third Star Wars parody from Teddie Films, and their first collaboration with Start. Aside from the aforementioned Kesha mashup, the group's Goyte parody, The Star Wars That I Used To Know, has received over four million views in the past month.
