So, if you haven’t noticed in your Facebook stream, there is a new music video parody of Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass. Nerdist.com presents Team Unicorns’ Star Wars Parody, “All About the Base (No Rebel)”
Meghan Trainors original song is already pretty catchy with it’s beat and lyrics. Team Unicorn continues that with their take. And maybe, I’m being too factoid nerdy but their lyrics are a bit off. In the repeated chorus, they say:
“The emperor said don’t worry about the size. He says, “It’s not like it’d be blown up twice by the same Jedi”
And I could be wrong, but I believe Lando destroyed the Death Star the second time. Luke was in the middle of a father-son battle with an Emperor audience. So mild continuity issue with that. Other than that, pretty entertaining and otherwise, good lyrical playfulness.
Of course, this isn’t the first and it won’t be the last of music parodies to Star Wars franchise. It’s been a while, but Galactic Empire State of Mind is still rattling in my brain.
