Genius Gotye cover yearns for the ‘Star Wars’ you used to know [Video]

This is a piece of unparalleled genius. It’s a fan cover lamenting all the changes George Lucas has made to the Star Wars franchise because, you know, they suck.

The video was made by Teddie Films, the production duo of Eddie King and Tyler Marshall. The pair is clearly the kind of die-hard fans who hate everything Lucas has done to the beloved franchise but watches everything new he puts out any way.

Christine Erickson of Mashable’s favourite line from the song is “And they’ll never get the Blu-ray of the Star Wars that you used to know.”

We humbly submit that the Darth character’s line “And then you told them all my history, and took away my masculinity and had my character played by sub-par actors” is better because it wholly encapsulates what’s wrong with the prequels.

This isn’t the first Star Wars themed parody Teddie films has done, having done a Rebecca Black themed “Friday” parody in 2011.

Han shot first!
