    How'd I get here? How can I leave?
    Can anyone provide link to this infamous video?

    Apparently, this kid from Quebec was goofing around in the school studio. He videotaped himself doing a rather dorky impression of the Star Wars Darth Maul battles. It was taken by people on the internet and edit with sound effects and goofy backgrounds. The video spread like wildfire all over the world.
    The poor guy was ridiculed and tormented so bad that he dropped out of school and finished a semester in summer classes.
    He's apparently overweight and his adolescent dork factor is extremely high. Hec, who can really say their dork factor wasn't high in the 'awkward' years? His oversight was that he didn't erase the damn tape.
    I'm sure that we'll see his story on The Onion's 'Pathetic Geek Stories' someday.

    His parents sued all the websites that featured the video and any form of it. So I cannot seem to find it anywhere.

    I saw the video, and I thought it was pretty good, for somebody goofing off. I wonder if George Lucas can (or did) work him into the next episode, an some young light sabre prodigy?

    It's amazing. Nobody wanted to watch this kid's video until it came out that he DIDN'T want everybody to see it.

    Anybody that watches this video while KNOWING the kid doesn't want to be seen is a jackass.

    Link to Star wars kid...

    I think the star wars kid is hilarious... that is the best sight for all of his stuff. But I guess there is a petition for him to make a Cameo in ep.3 , I hear they have quite a few signatures...

    I think it is sad that people are making fun of what is a travesty. People neglected to think of this kid's right to privacy and are now making money off of his misfortune! That's sick!
