This Amazing Gotye Parody Longs For 'The Star Wars That I Used to Know'

I've heard Gotye and Kimbra sing "Somebody That I Used To Know" approximately 1 billion times. I am, I guess, like 50% sick of the song. (It's a very good song.)

But this? This is pure brilliance. Eddie King and Tyler Marshall from Teddie Films have made this spectacular parody of the song and its companion video, and it's just… man. It takes everything that makes the original song and video so great (That chorus! That paint!) and puts it through a filter of hilarious Star Wars bitchery.

Just when you think the dead "Star Wars Sucks Now" horse is well and truly beaten, something like this comes along and makes beating it feel fresh again.

But you didn't have to change it all
make em like they never happened and the fans are nothin
I don't even need your love
treat me like a bantha and it feels so rough.

Greg the Mad

Now and then I think of when we were together

Like when you said another nerd just died

Told myself that you were right for me

But felt so lonely in your company

But that was fandom and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of conversation

Like putting trolls to the end, always the end

So when you found that we could not make sense

Well you said that we would still be friends

But I'll admit that I was sad it was over

But you didn't have to change the system

Make us click avatas like it was nothing

And I don't even need your news

But you treat me like a troll and that feels so rough

No you didn't have to reply so loose

Have your friends cover your sign-in and then change your forums

I guess that I don't need that though

Now you're just some blog to that I used to go

Now you're just some blog to that I used to go

Now you're just some blog to that I used to go

Now and then I think of all the times you trolled me over

But had me believing it was always something fun

But I don't wanna live that way

Reading into every word you say

You said that you could let it go

And I wouldn't catch you hung up on some blog to that I used to go

But you didn't have to change the system

Make us click avatas like it was nothing

And I don't even need your news

But you treat me like a troll and that feels so rough

No you didn't have to reply so loose

Have your friends cover your sign-in and then change your forums

I guess that I don't need that though

Now you're just some blog to that I used to go

Some blog

(to that I used to go)
