Parody search: Obi Wan tells Luke what really happened in the prequels
November 29, 2015 4:40 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to track down a Star Wars parody where Obi Wan and Luke are on Dagobah, and Obi Wan is explaining all the ridiculous backstory according to the prequels.

I know this seems google-able. I have dug through every star wars parody on youtube trying to track this down. I feel like I originally saw it around 2010 or so.

Maybe it's not on youtube, maybe it was a short bit for an awards show owned by a network.

I don't remember all the jokes. I think midi-chlorians come up. The final punchline is about how Luke's mother died, where Obi Wan looks ashamed and says, "of... a broken heart."

I feel like it wasn't original footage dubbed, but actors, so it at least had some budget. (College Humor? VH1? I looked at the robot chicken parodies, but I don't think it was action figures, I think it was people...)

This is driving me crazy, it's like it's been wiped from the internet...

Help me Ask MeFi, you're my only hope!

The full text of the robot chicken one is here; it doesn't have the "broken heart" line and it's Luke and Vader, not Obi-wan.

The bit you saw most likely came from one of Robot Chickens 3 parodies, 1 each for Star Wars episodes 1-3. They range from 24m to 45m long.
IMDB: episode 1
IMDB: episode 2
IMDB: episode 3

Response by poster: It was definitely a similar gag to the robot chicken posted by town of cats, but longer, and live actors, not action figures.

I remember seeing them both...

This one was definitely set on a mockup of the Dagobah set, as opposed to that one with Darth Vader.
