I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, I constantly tried to persuade my parents to watch me reenact The Empire Strikes Back with action figures – it was the only one I had sufficient toys to reproduce, as the Death Star I playsets had been retired, and they never made any for Death Star II.
If you’re thinking, “Oh, how cute!” then you’re reckoning without my parents, who didn’t feel the need to humor my interests any more than absolutely necessary. They never, ever watched me play it out, never experiencing what I considered to be my great Darth Vader impersonation and laser sound effects. Yes, now you know the traumas that made me what I am, and I’m sure you’ll never abuse them, right?
But take those sounds, add them to the real visuals, and you get this video. I confess I’d like to see a whole movie done this way.
