Oh yeah, the farce is strong with this one. The clever little monkeys over at Auralnauts decided to swap out the sinister voice of Darth Vader and replace it with the even more sinister ramblings of Republican front-runner (for the love of all that’s holy, how is this still happening?!) Donald Trump. The result is pure comedy gold.
And just because they could, Auralnauts didn’t just use random Trump sound clips, they picked ones that fit the scene, sometimes a little TOO well (“I’m really good at war! I love war!”). I actually burst out laughing when Vader force chokes Admiral Ozzel* with a dismissive “You’re fired!” It only gets funnier from there as they video goes on to The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Seriously, the iconic scene where Luke loses his hand is now ruined for me forever but it was totally worth it. And just wait until Luke pulls off the mask….
Watch the entire video here:
Trump is uniquely suited for this kind of lampooning because, let’s be honest, he’s a cartoon villain. The only thing he’s missing is the long mustache to twirl as he laughs maniacally about deporting Muslims and Mexicans. His ego and self-aggrandizement just scream to be made fun of and the geniuses at Auralnauts has delivered the goods and then some!
