The Star Wars Kid

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Have you guys heard about this teenager who filmed himself doing light saber battle with invisible foes? It got on the internet as a prank from his friends, and now the kid is in counciling.

Yeah, his parents are also suing the parents of the boys involved in posting it on the Net. I'm sure it was somewhat traumatic for him, but I'm willing to bet that the reason he 'needs therapy' is so his parents can milk the situation for all its worth , getting more money.

well, regardless, it's pretty darn funny....
The first time I saw it I was lmao, I do feel bad about the fact that it was taken from hime without his knowledge, and then posted for all the world to see.

I'll be interested to see how this plays out.... I remember a case about a group of girls that made a website that listed what was, in thier opinion, dorks of the school, or something like that.

oh my god this is sooooooooooooooooo funny!!!


the surrounding circumstances aren't as funny though...


poor guy...

I've never heard of this before and would certainly have overlooked it if posted somewhere else. That was a really nerdy performance. It was his seriousness that eventually got me laughing. I think he just needs to grow up instead of getting counselling.

The kid deserves the humiliation, he was stupid enough to film himself. Infact I've seen the video and I could not top laughing. You have to see the unedited video and then the edited video. The kids that edited the video did an awesome job!

Aww.... E36... that's kinda harsh... He's just a kid... And kids do silly things. I dunno if he deserves to be humiliated for just being a kid and... well... sort a nerdy too.

harsh?....he,he,he

...kids do stupid things but this had "make a fool out me" written all over it!

Well done to the editors!...I'm still laughing.

I don't see what's so bad about the video. I used to dance in my bedroom at night. I'd be embarrassed if anyone had posted a video of me doing it (because I'm klutzier than he was and heavier), but I wouldn't let it get the better of me.

Can't people just let kids be kids anymore?
post #12 of 26
Becareful E36, someone might make a video of you and post it to this site!



Personally, I think I'd be more embarrassed if someone video'd me conversing with my cats and posted it. You guys would understand, but most of the world wouldn't.

Poor kid, I can't help but feel sorry for him. Granted the video had me laughing really hard, but I used to do stupider things as a kid. But he seems really nerdy, so that means in 10 years he will be graduating from Harvard and making tons of money and dating lots of girls.

Hey, what's wrong with a kid with imagination? They should be encouraged.

Just my 2c worth

If this boy had been in his karate outfit practicing his moves, nobody would care. I don't see the big deal. Why should we discourage kids being kids?
post #16 of 26
Personally, I don't see the harm in what he's doing. For an obese teenager, he was at least getting a little exercise. He was handling the "saber" fairly well (I would have bonked myself in the head, and bruised my body over and over trying to do what he was doing.) We'll probably see this kid in a move someday as a stunt actor or a stand in! LOL.

A lot of people film themselves doing things they want to perfect. When I was in the Army, I used to practice doing pushups in front of the mirror. I wanted to make sure I was doing them properly so I could score higher on my physical fitness tests. Health clubs have mirrored walls so weightlifters can check their form as they workout.

Yet another frivolous lawsuit. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Some folks need to get a grip.

there are over 40 'clone' versions of this video at~

www.jedimaster.net

different variations to the orginal.
post #18 of 26
Now that would be a reason to sue. Why do they need 40 of them? How crude!
post #19 of 26
So he looks a little silly, big deal. He's just being a kid. All of us do silly stuff that we wouldn't want put all over the net, but if you film something, chances are, someone is going to see it.
post #20 of 26
e 36, were you perfect at being a little kid, not doing such silly things? Kids are kids, heck even adults do silly things. I didn't see anything wrong with it, I was the only child and had no siblings, so I would have to entertain myself while my parents worked and make up things when I would go to the park and I constantly talked to myself, acting out different characters, they would have put me in the looney bin by then but they figured I was just a kid. And now I have a son and I talk to him in gibberish and even with my cat, even cats do wild silly things, all of a sudden chasing after invisible things in the air or on the floor. I found your comment to be just a tad bit on the harsh side. The video is funny, but I'm not sure why his friends posted it, unless to hurt him. The parents pursing a law suit, I'm not sure about that, kind of ridiculous unless he is embarrassed that its on the net or the parents are more worried about their own image to their community. Or the money part. Anyway, kids and imagination and even adults with their imagination, nothing wrong with it nor anything 'stupid' about it. Until and unless you kill or harm someone based on hearing 'whisperings'. Then that is crazy.

Lord have Mercy- I was an obese kid as well. I used to gallop around my parents back yard and "try" to jump over the fence! LOL FACE SPLAT! I can imagine if someone had captured those moments on tape! But I was a victim of my own imagination, and quite honestly, I don't think this kid was all that bad. I would have knocked myself unconscious swinging that stick around.

LOL!!! He may end up being the next super director like George Lucas, talk about imagination, man!!! Or even the matrix, the Wychowski brothers coming up with such a broad spectrum of meanings!!! You never know

Tybalt, I think you'll make us ladies swoon if you keep posting pics of yourself!

I think what he did was normal "kid" stuff. I remember when I was a kid, I used to pretend like I was a big rockstar, I used a hair brush for a Mic, and I "performed" for my imaginary audience.

I remember also, the time I caught my brother pretending his was Captain Kirk, in The Enterprise. It was priceless. It was so funny. Now he's a normal well adjusted husband and father.

I agree with who ever said it just showed this kid has an imagination. I much prefer people like this kid, than the so - called "normal" kids who went to so much trouble to make fun of him.

The future will show, that those jerks who made fun of him, will end up working in gas stations, and True Value Stores, while this kid will end up being a big success. Most of our favorite actors, and musicians were more like this poor kid.

Sorry but it just makes me SO angry, when I see people trying to destroy another human being with imagination. It's sad.

I do not see anything wrong with what he is doing, looks like he is getting a pretty good workout
post #26 of 26
I wish there was a way for that kid to see all these comments. I wonder if he knows Bill Gates was a goofy kid? It is a shame when a kid can't just have a little harmless fun and not have someone make a big issue of it. At least he isn't out being a little heathen and getting in trouble if he is at home doing stuff like this.
