Star Wars Uncut

Thanks to Shannon, I've been watching this "Star Wars Uncut" video on YouTube. Here's part of the description:

In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake "Star Wars: A New Hope" into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted.

So each person had 15 seconds of the original film, and the recreated it -- dialogue and props and clothing and body language and whatnot -- however they liked. Some people used animation; some used cats; some used small children; some used Legos; some used stop motion; some used old Star Wars action figures; some presented Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers as sexy 1960's chicks; some wrapped themselves in gold foil to play C3PO; some used those giant rolling trash bins as the Sand People's vehicle; etc., etc., etc. Then all these 15-second bits got pieced together into a 2-hour complete recreation of the original film.

The film is far more addictive than it should be. Some people's interpretations are kinda boring and literal, but others are hilarious. I've been watching it maybe a minute at a time, because it's a bit much in large doses, but it's been making me crack up frequently. I'm only about 20 minutes in, so far, and I'm not sure how long it will continue to entertain me, but I thought I'd share. It's possible that everyone else has already seen it, but here you go. (The first few minutes are boring intro crap, so I recommend skipping ahead.)
