In a super rad corner of outer space...
“The Emperor Strikes Back”
Packed with ridiculous humor, this BLR video takes the cake.
Episode V‘s Bad Lip Reading redub goes back to BLR’s roots with a musical makeover as Luke raps while cruising around Hoth (full version here). This goes either way depending on how you feel about musical renditions, but Dak Ralter’s abrupt ending gets an A+.
The video continues to be liberally musical, and we get Yoda’s infamous “SEAGULLS!” song shortly after meeting him at 1’35”. It’s like something out of Family Guy, and Yoda’s creepy “Don’t fall asleep” should crack you up.
In general, seeing Darth Vader reimagined as a pretty nice, albeit weird, guy makes his interactions with Death Star personnel priceless. This installment also introduces us to Lando and all the awesome scenes he stars in, including the pelican fiasco at 3’37”.
Must-watch moments: Some gross kissing sounds (1’01”); nice-guy Darth in his shell (1’05”); Luke calling Yoda pitchy (2’15”); the wicker basket incident (2’50”); Han’s kinky torture scene (3’25”); the unexpected ’80s show (4’04”); and the lightsaber duel that sounds more like a tennis match (4’53” through the end).
One of the most-viewed Bad Lip Reading videos, “SEAGULLS! (Stop It Now)” was a breakout hit after the success of the original song clip in the parody for The Empire Strikes Back.
Enjoy Yoda in all his glory.
