This Star Wars/X-Men: First Class mashup makes the prequels shine

By taking the audio from the X-Men: First Class trailer and mating it with pretty well-chosen clips from the Star Wars prequel trilogy—and a couple sneaky shots of the, er, good trilogy—someone managed to give the story of Anakin Skywalker's fall some real dramatic heft. For two minutes, anyway.

It's actually kind of scary how well the audio works—except for the whole JFK/Cuban Missile Crisis bit. But, hey, you can't have it all, right?
