Star Wars Kid remixed
If you were living under a rock and didn't see the Star Wars Kid video, it has now spawned a whole video remix subculture.
The Star Wars Kid is a 15-year-old from Quebec known as Ghyslain Raza.
Back in November 2002, Ghyslain was goofing off at a school video studio and recorded himself fighting a mock battle with a golf ball retriever lightsaber. Over two minutes, the video shows the lone, overweight teenager twirling his mock lightsaber ever faster while making his own accompanying sound effects.
Yes, we've all had our dorky, private moments, but this poor kid is living the nightmare of having his private dorkiness projected across the world to giggling Web users. His friends found the tape, and uploaded it to KaZaA as a joke on April 19. Within two weeks, someone had added full Star Wars special effects and sound effects to the footage. Currently, new clone videos are being created at the rate of 1 per day
