Gotye/Star Wars Parody Casts Darth Vader and George Lucas as Estranged Lovers

For A More Civilized Age

Good job internet: you finally found a way to get me to listen to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” so that I could write this post about a parody video that recasts the post-breakup couple of the original as George Lucas and Anakin Skywalker (who also appears to be standing in for Star Wars fans).

There goes another pop song that I only know because of clever parodies of it on the internet. I’m looking at you “Call Me Maybe,” and “Sexy and I Know It.”

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
