This doesn’t mean he was caught on videotape peeing on underage Bothans, alas. It just means someone made a music video of R. Kelly’s ridiculous “Real Talk” song starring Lando, and man, is it fantastic. I admit, I might be a bit biased, because creator Frankenseuss managed to work in Ackmena from the Star Wars Holiday Special, as Boing Boing noted, and anything that gives Lando and Bea Arthur time together is totally rad in my book. Still, it’s a better way to end the day than most of the insanity I usually force on you.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
