A New Hope!

Kottke points to inappropriate movie soundtracks, among them a scene from Star Wars Episode IV, A New Hope, set to Queen and David Bowie's Under Pressure. Here's the video:

The YouTube name for the video is "A New Hope ruined scene," but I actually love it! Maybe it's the fact that I'm so familiar with the characters or maybe it's just like Pink Floyd and the Wizard of Oz, but I actually feel more emotions watching that video than simply listening to the song (which I love!). I only wish the video wouldn't cut out when it does. Just as the song is reaching its celebratory climax, Luke et al. are saved by C3PO and R2D2 and begin celebrating. But the video tragically stops. Oh well, it's still fun to watch.
