Not content with mashing up classic sci-fi movies with nonsensical '50s instructional videos to "teach" us good manners, the video geniuses over at OneMinuteGalactica have tweaked Star Wars to prove that, oh boy, did we really dodge a bullet when George Lucas got born in the U.S. instead of in France!

The hilarious video below marries footage that was burned into our souls long ago with subtitles stolen from the works of Jean-Paul Sartre, and proves that an existential Star Wars would have brought us nothing but despair.

A three-minute spoof of same, however, brings nothing but smiles.

Check it out below.

(And to any French members of our audience out there ... we're sorry.)
