It’s not a moon!

Never were true words spoken – well okay they have been but admitting that severely lessens the dramatic impact of that opening statement thank you – but what were the musical moments woven in around those kinds of admissions? What were Leia and Grand Moff Tarkin really singing to each other, and were they singing at all?

Why yes, yes they were – what? You never noticed that before? – singing of goat bladders and puppets, roast beef and tribbles (wait … what?), roundness and power, children of the night and bunions on feet.

Bad Lip Reading‘s It’s Not a Moon is everything you never knew Star Wars was and could be, a joyous festival of musical theatre a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

It also serves as a warning against the dangers of eating cheese … around Darth Vader anyway.

Sing-a-long, save the galaxy and remember – quails and their rubber beaks are beautifully unique. Words to live by right?
