Iceland’s Bara Heiða created this stunningly adorable music video to remind you that yes, Imperial stormtroopers are people too–and they can fall in love. It centers around a stormtrooper who crash landed on a mysterious planet called Earth. The video features his attempts at integrating into Earthling society: dealing with stormtrooper hate, finding a job, and even finding love.
As for the latter part of that, he finds it halfway through the video in one of the cutest meet-cutes I’ve seen in a while. It seems that Finn must have set off a bit of a trend in the whole “breaking mental conditioning” thing that he did. Good for you, Finn. And good for you, nameless stormtrooper. I hope you get to hold on to that happiness.
The music itself is quite something. It’s a neat folk-y style of music that’s got a sweet pop edge to it that isn’t too cloyingly sweet. It’s also tinged with a bit of a melancholy which seems to be in keeping with the turns that folk/pop music has been taking lately. As a professed “emo revival” fan, this song was right up my alley. You should give the band a look-see (hear-listen?), and tell us: what do you think?
