Top Star Wars Spoof Videos Continued

Restricting my list of Star Wars videos to 10 was purely arbitrary (see my Top Ten Star Wars Spoof Videos). And overly confining.

As it turns out, the Star Wars tradition is rich in content, and the field of parody and humour lies vast and deep. While the videos get repetitive -- even exhausting -- they're nevertheless well worth examining during idle moments of weekend leisure.

Herewith additional Star Wars material for your viewing pleasure and contemplation...

The Force: Volkswagen Commercial

A viral commercial hit first played during the Super Bowl. It even inspired its own parody, as well as having an outtake reel released.

Darth Vader Cell Phone

Don't you wish you could do this to offenders at the theatre or other public places?

adidas Originals - Star Wars Cantina 2010

Kind of a travesty, this sort of revisionist editing is what leads to Greedo shooting first.

It's a Trap!

Admiral Akbar says: It's a trap!

Grocery Store Wars

While not actually that engaging, the cleverness of the props in this short deserves accolades.

Star Wars Help Desk

Star Wars Gangsta Rap 2

Darth Vader's Collect Call

Harry Potter/LOTR/Star Wars Mashup

Making some uncomfortable observations about the shared plot elements of these stories.

Weird Al Yankovic: The Saga Begins

I'm not sure which is stranger, this version or Madonna's.

Weird Al Yankovic: Yoda (LEGO)

Death Star over San Francisco

I like the editing in this, it's almost seamless except in a few places.

Darth Vader Feels Blue

This one takes a little patience, you have to wait for it to develop.

Darth Vader Heidi Klum

But what line are they answering??

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Star Wars

DJ Keltech - Keltech Strikes Back

Star Tours: Darth Vader Goes to Disneyland

Lord Vader's foray into the theme park world has resulted in some truly heinous outcomes.

Darth Vader Salsa Trombone

This clip of Darth Vader playing trombone at a retirement home is nigh unbearable, yet strangely hypnotic...

And finally, you can't have a Star Wars video parody list without including the granddaddy of them all,

Hardware Wars

Gratuitous extra clip - Kenner toys commercial

Bonus clip 2: Sariah Gallego Joins the Dark Side

Were there any classics that I missed? Let me know in the comments! (sorry, no Family Guy or Simpsons for me...)
