Star Wars: Bad Lip Reading video tackles Empire Strikes Back with Yoda's seagull song

Posted on

In Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Yoda is the grandmaster Jedi who teaches Luke Skywalker the ways of the Force. In the film’s Bad Lip Reading counterpart, he’s a senile old alien singing about seagulls attacking him on the beach before getting hit in the neck by a random hacky sack. 

The simplistic but gut-wrenchingly funny Bad Lip Reading video series has tackled Star Wars a number of times, including Empire. But this new take compiles some of the scenes from Yoda and Luke’s training sessions on Dagobah and transforms them into a music video for the made-up song “Seagulls! (Stop It Now).”

All of a sudden, R2-D2 becomes the hysterically impromptu percussion set we didn’t know we needed in our lives. (Skip to the 1:43 mark.)

Watch the video above.
