Here’s a video of a dude with a lightsaber fighting a bunch of ninjas, who also have lightsabers. While the special effects are good, the action choreography great and the direction excellent, I’m sure you’re asking yourself why I posted this one, made by Team 2X with special effects by GakAttack, instead of one of the other hundreds of fan-made videos of people fighting each other with lightsabers I receive regularly. Well, ladies and gentlemen, the answer will be provided to you assuming you watch until the end of the video. Specifically at 2:20. It has one of the greatest endings I’ve ever seen on one of these things, and truly, it is a Topless Robot kind of video. Enjoy.
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.
