By mating one of cinema's great speeches—Charlie Chaplin's from The Great Dictator—with footage from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, one enterprising editor has created an insightful ode to a great villain's redemption.

Tenkan, a self-described YouTuber living in the Middle-East, patched this together using the audio from Chaplin's heartfelt screed against Hitler and his Nazis (with an assist from the Inception score) and video from George Lucas' long-running animated series.

The result is as astonishing look at a man reflecting on the life he's led and the choices he's made.
