70’s Flashback – The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)

Welcome to the darkest moment in the history of Star Wars fandom…the outrageously hideous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special.

I was going to simply post a segment of the original special, but then I found this video from a guy who calls himself Nostalgia Critic:

(Fair warning…there’s quite a few f-bombs in this)

This guy is HILARIOUS!  I am peeing my pants.  Want more? Good news!  There’s a PART TWO:

….and yes, you guessed it, there’s a PART THREE (but do yourself a favor & stop it at 5:38, IMO it stops being funny after that):

If you want to see more of Nostalgia Critic & other hilarity, check out That Guy with the Glasses.


One thought on “70’s Flashback – The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)

  1. I had never heard of this holiday film until now. And the guy with the glasses is hysterical, you’re right. But it would be hard to miss when you have such great material to work with.

    I had to watch the last few minutes of part 3, of course, and thought that Santa Christ was pretty strange. But the directions on the transmitter and the music videos and the wookies were all so funny.

    What a weird show. And the song at the end about the tree of life and living in harmony was pretty gag-worthy.
