You know, when I first saw the title of this vid in the TR mailbox, I immediately assumed that it was going to be all footage from the prequels. You know, Jedi ignoring their duties, choosing not to rescue certain slaves, cheating on bets, failing to discover the Sith that’s right in front of them, denouncing love, et cetera, et cetera. But no, it’s just two jackasses with lightsabers running around being dicks. Frankly, at least these douchebags aren’t pretending to be the moral center of the galaxy. Although I feel pretty confident they watch Entourage, so I think it’s a draw. Thanks to Chris Illuminati for the tip. (Via Assholeology)
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.
