Have You Seen This? Bad lip reading with Yoda

DEGOBAH SYSTEM If you have never experienced the joy that is the YouTube channel Bad Lip Reading, it is high time you did.

If you arent familiar with this channel, the concept is simple.The creator takes clips from news, sports, pop culture, and classic movie scenes and redoes the dialogue with really bad lip reading. In his own words, he puts words into other peoples mouths.

His latest video, titled Seagulls! (Stop It Now), takes us back to The Empire Strikes Back in the original Star Wars trilogy. While this should be the series of scenes where Yoda is wisely instructing and training Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Jedi, it is instead a cautionary tale of seagull problems that Yoda faced the last time he went to the beach.

It is silly, but it is also funny and entertaining in a way that only the internet can give us. Plus the hummed bridges are extremely catchy, and you may find you have it stuck in your head for hours, if not days.

Keep your ears peeled for Yodas drum solo played upon the loveable (if not slightly abused) R2-D2, for Lukes American Idol-esque review of Yodas sweet ditty, and for my favorite part, Yodas menacing threats toward his supposed protege.
