The Star Wars Dancing Has Gone from Vaguely Funny to Shameful and Embarrassing


I was pretty excited to find this much longer clip of the Star Wars Weekend with the “Thriller”-dancing Darth Vader, and that excitement lasted for about five seconds before Chewbacca and a Jawa danced together to “Footloose,” and a growing sense of shame and embarrassment kicked in. If you can stomach it, there’s another dance group?pay special attention to the way the Gamorrean Guard shakes her booty?and the full Vader dance special. You know, for all shit people say about nerds being popular, or the nerds having won, I can’t help but watch things like this and realize some nerdery will never be socially acceptable.
