The Empire Laughs Back


Some dude named Captain Chirac added a laugh track to Vader and Luke’s confrontation in Empire Strikes Back, and it is fucking my shit up. It’s so, so weird — the laughs make the whole scene incredibly unsettling to me, especially when Luke gets his hand cut off and the crowd goes wild. It’s like you’re watching the movie with genial psychopaths or something. Anyways, thanks to Dan M. for the tip.
