Remember that time Donny and Marie Osmond parodied Star Wars?

Just when you thought Han Solo's Dance Party was the weirdest musical Star Wars thing you'd see this week, here comes this clip from the Donny & Marie variety show, in which the brother-and-sister team play sci-fi's most famous siblings. And sing. And dance. And bring on Redd Foxx as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Kris Kristofferson as Han Solo.

It's every bit as bad as you think it'll be—the songs are pretty tepid, and none of the guest stars look like they want to be there ... especially Kristofferson, who looks like a Han Solo who wishes Greedo would shoot first—and yet there's something magnetic about this clip. You just can't look away.

Someone should launch another variety show in which they do nothing but lampoon popular movies with hack songs and worse dancing. I'd watch it every frakkin' night.
