Star Wars Cantina Band Auditions
Have you seen this? Star Wars Cantina Band Auditions was created by CollegeHumor who teamed up with Disney and Lucasfilm using an exact replica of the original Star Wars Cantina set. Star Wars Cantina Band Auditions is a silly and goofy viral detailing the weird and wonderful music bands who are part of the Tatooine music scene.
From a Satanic Metal head Sith lord who “willll embraceee the dark sideeeee”, sung in full ” Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny” style to a hologram folk singer to a Jedi, using the force to play the guitar, there is a hilarious collection of X-Factor style auditions!
A Boba Fett rap is in there which alone is so worth it to watch this, then there is “Bantha Milk So creamy and blue Squeezed from a space yak It’s healthy for you! HEY!” and even Weird Al shows up! Another great lyric is “Or Yoda “I met him in a swamp down in Dagobah, where it bubbles all the time like a giant, carbonated soda!”. LOL!!
Alternative rock icon Liz Phair delivers an acoustic ballad about the Death Star – apparently as a protest?. “Get off the stage, you tree hugger!” yells the barkeep, as the singer’s ejected from the stage by a team of Storm Troopers. Reggie Watts (RG-Watts) appears as some sort of droid creature that malfunctions mid-beatbox, while Mark McGrath pokes fun at his surfer-boy image as sand person Muark MCCCCCCCCC’ Wrath, and Jordin Sparks (Jor Din Sparks) unveils her emotive about The Force – as part of “Intergalactic Idol.”
