French Star Wars — Make The Nightmares Stop!

Some French people seriously misunderstood what Star Wars was supposed to be about, and the result may cause severe nausea and internal bleeding. Four C-3POs dance rather salaciously with four Darth Vaders in space... and then the awful wirework begins. » 1/11/10 9:30am 1/11/10 9:30am
