"The Star Wars that I Used to Know"

We've all thought it: What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know? Now the question has been set to the music of Gotye, by Eddie King and Tyler Marshall of Teddie Films.

The parody tackles the most recent fan outrage, where a Star Wars: Episode IV scene was altered for the Blu-ray edition to show Han Solo shooting the alien Greedo only after first being fired upon. (In the original, Han fired the first shot, which many fans said was important to establishing his roguish character.)
You didn't have to change it all.
No more puppets, no more practical effects or nothin'
I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a wampa and that feels so cold.
No you didn't have to sell your soul
Do we really need to watch them all again in 3D?
Jar Jar was an all time low
What happened to the Star Wars that I used to know

Just for comparison, here's the original Gotye version of the song.

You only get high quality parody from high quality source materials. Both films fantastic, thanks, Henry.
