A hilarious fan-made mashup video shows the audience at the Oscars reacting to an infamous band from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
One of the many derided changes made to the original Star Wars trilogy for the special edition involved the Max Rebo Band in Return of the Jedi. While the original version of the scene used puppets and a relatively more quiet song for the Max Rebo Band’s performance in Jabba’s palace, the special edition version of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi featured CGI band members and a considerably more obnoxious song.
Now, Twitter user “heathdwilliams” has created a mashup video that combines footage from the 2019 Oscars ceremony and the performance at Jabba’s palace. For those who may be unaware, the 2019 Oscars ceremony featured a performance by Eminem, who sang the Academy Award-winning song “Lose Yourself.” While many of the Oscars attendees were thrilled by the performance, others were visibly confused, likely due to the fact that song won the Academy Award back in 2002.
Now, fans can watch the Oscars audiences, which includes the confused Billie Eilish and Idina Menzel alongside the enthused Brie Larson and Kelly Marie Tran, reacting to the lambasted performance from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
What do you think of this Oscars / Star Wars mashup? How did you feel about the Oscars ceremony? Let us know below!
