Singing Lucas defends his Star Wars tinkering in hilarious spoof

George Lucas is such an easy target. He's been the butt of multiple jokes, and now he's the star of a (parody) music video. Inspired by Goyte's "Somebody That I Used to Know," watch as our Lucas frustration is cleverly expressed in song.

The video was produced by Teddie Films and is described as "a story of heartbreak to which Star Wars fans everywhere can relate." You know what they're talking about. You hate the constant edits and tinkering that's been done to the original trilogy. You yearn for an unaltered version of the films that you fell in love with as a child.

But Mr. Lucas has other plans. According to this song:

Now and then I think of all the times I screwed fans over.
 I had them believing that the first three films were really done.
 But Star Wars will be done my way. 
I don't care what you have to say. 
I think that they should let it go. 
And they'll never get the Blu-ray of the Star Wars that you used to know


Check out "The Star Wars That I Used to Know" below. And tell us how it stacks up to Goyte's video.

Here's Goyte's original "Somebody That I Used to Know:"
