Ladies and gents, let me make up this morning’s scurrilous and inaccurate nerd reporting/YouTube video posting to you with this video of an old Muppets tune set to Star Wars footage. It’s new to me despite clearly being old, so if you’ve seen it already, you have my apologies, and I direct you to this video of Crocodile Dundeere-edited as a rather terrifying horror flick. As for this video, despite having one joke repeated as nauseum, I find something quite wonderful of Dr. Teeth’s voice coming from Darth Vader?much thanks to the awesomely named Briahlen Hand for the tip. You guys have a good weekend, and I’ll meet you back here Monday morning.
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.
