The Vader Sessions

This YouTube video is spreading like a wildfire, so you’ve probably already seen it. (I discovered it through Peter Chattaway’s blog.)

If not, here it is: the funniest YouTube link in, oh, at least a few weeks.

It’s sure to inspire a ton of variations, and that could be a good thing… it’s such a simple and brilliant idea. Basically, it’s a bunch of footage from Star Wars in which James Earl Jones’s lines as Darth Vader have been replaced by his lines from other films. You’ll never look at Vader quite the same way again.

But proceed with caution: There’s some harsh language involved.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
