Han Solo Dances in Kinect Star Wars and Every Nerd Cries (VIDEO)
Kinect Star Wars is out tomorrow, but a few superfans have managed to find and snag the game a few days early — and that has given rise to videos on YouTube of the game’s dance-based minigame, which apparently no one saw coming, despite the fact that the Kinect’s primary function is to facilitate dancing for the rhythmically challenged.
But Star Wars fans across the Internet are angry and sad because of the video below and more like it. That’s right — Han Solo dances. And yeah, for a minute there, I was mad about it too. But then I realized that Han Solo and Lando Calrissian were having a Galactic Dance-Off on Bespin, and they were dancing to a clean, fairly uplifting version of MC Chris’ parody song “I’m Han Solo.” And to be honest, this video is full of delicious, hilarious, giggle-spreading happiness.
Look at it. Let it wash over you. Chill for a sec, push down the Star Wars fan bile that’s bubbling up inside you, and realize just how hilariously fun this noise is. There’s a song in which stormtroopers sing a version of “YMCA” about being conscripted into the Internet. And holy crap, kids, look at Calrissian tear it up out there.
George Lucas has been steadily ruining Star Wars for, really, the majority of my entire life. It’s about time we stop worrying and love the bomb, here, folks, and enjoy the simple things while we can. Greedo shot first, Darth Vader was a whiner, and Han Solo dances. It’s over. It’s no longer worth it to be angry.
