All about that base - Star Wars parody

You know, I'm really not a huge fan of Star Wars. So why do I keep coming across these musical parodies?

This one doesn't have Princess Leia, but it's still a lot of fun, don't you think?

There's an amazing amount of creativity on the Internet. Wonder what it caused to make this video? Was it made by fans, or professionals?

Both, probably, don't you think? And yes, that's why I love YouTube.

There are various levels of professionalism (and fandom) on YouTube, and some of them are little more than an attractive woman in a Princess Leia costume. (Here, for example.) But that generally works for me. Heh, heh.

Seriously, I like the fact that ordinary people can create videos like this. Well, 'ordinary people' with talent, at least. But even people without much talent can make the attempt, and I like that.

I only post the videos I especially like, but I like the fact that it's democratic. Of course, you have to be willing to take a lot of abuse, no matter how talented you are. It is YouTube. That's the downside.
