Darth Vader: A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self (VIDEO)
DrCoolSex comedy group and YouTube channel, responsible for the Hey Arnold! live action movie trailer, has put a Star Wars spin on Jeremiah McDonald’s viral video, “A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self.”
To produce a video two decades in the making, Jeremiah recorded himself on a videocassette as a 12-year-old in 1992 and waited 20 years to film a response, editing the two into a one-man conversation. Through the time lapse, Jeremiah confronts changed appearances, deceased pets, and the continued pursuit of childhood aspirations.
Who else would you expect to be inspired by this split-person display other than Darth Vader? The famous father has some emotional baggage to sort through with his young Anakin Skywalker-self.
But, of course, he uses a hologram instead of a videotape.
