Before you hit play, you have to realize the following things about this video:
? The is the work of one man, ApprenticeA.
? He is going to sing a medly of John Williams’ movie themes.
? Although this includes E.T., Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park and others, he has written lyrics solely about Star Wars for the entire four-minute song.
? He will be singing four different parts simultaneously throughout the video, thanks to the magic of video editing.
? I have no idea what possessed him to do this, but he is the awesomest nerd I’ve ever seen.
That is all. (Via Geekologie)
Update: Well, fine. I was duped. It’s a song by the a cappella group Moosebutter, which this dude simply recorded himself singing different parts of and editing. He is no longer the awesomest nerd I’ve ever seen. but a troubled youth with far too much time on his hands. It’s always a thin line between the two. Thanks for cruelly mocking my ignorance in the comments.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
