Off topic: The Star Wars Kid

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Star Wars Kid.   Ghyslain Raza from Quebec, used his high school’s video camera to capture him undertaking a mock Jedi fight.  The only problem was he left the video in the camera.  His schoolmates uploaded the video on the web and like everything else on this medium it took off on a life of it’s own.

Ghyslain’s efforts have been put to music, had Star Wars sound effects added etc. They’re actually very funny. (You can see a host of these and the original here). But now the fun must stop.

Mr. and Mrs. Raza are suing the families of four classmates they accuse of maliciously turning their son into an object of mockery by uploading the files for a cool $225,000.
