Exclusive interview with George Lucas on "Boba Fett Mystique"

We just received permission from the publicity handler for George Lucas to air this *!*!*!*exclusive*!*!*!* interview with the Star Wars creator about his new self-help audiobook and line of aromatherapy bath salts and sugar scrubs, "The Boba Fett Mystique."

This product is co-branded by notoriously cocooned celebrity author JD Salinger. Behold, our power of videobloggage is mighty! It's a special calendar day.

    Wait..which one was George Lucas?

  2. Registrado says:

    Excellent! When the joke content is more enjoyable to watch than the real content would have been, everyone wins. I look forward to an entire “Xeni: Dancin’ to the Memes” collection.

    Does anyone know where I can get an MP3 of Numa Elevator Theme?

    I am soooooo blogging this on the Official Starwars.com blog!

    That answers all MY questions about Star Wars, George Lucas and the sexual underbelly of steamed peas.

  6. jgriffiths says:

    I love that BMW would even sponsor a silly April Fools video, is the Boing Boing audience really that huge?

    Look carefully in the credits:
    Blue Dot #2 played by George Lucas.

    In the sequel we will find that Xeni is blue dot #1’s sister, and George will play himself. But you will have to wait two years for that….

    I didn’t even watch the entire video, but it literally gave me a nightmare last night:

    I went to a movie with my mom, my grandma, and Xeni. Xeni misunderstood and thought she was on a date with me. She was seeking attention by bouncing around and trying to act cute (as in this video). I was mortified.

    I struggled for a face-saving way of explaining to Xeni that I’m not interested or available, explaining to my mom that I don’t even know Xeni, and explaining to my grandmother that she’s supposed to be dead.

    Relief came when two large bulls came crashing into the theater pursued by cowboys. Everyone in the theater scrambled for the exits. I took the opportunity to just ditch Xeni in the mayhem and confusion.

    A happy ending to a bad dream.

    Great work! I agree with REGISTRADO.

    Thanks for wasting my fucking time.

  11. kilranian says:

    Thank you so much, Xeni. Of all the “April Fools” jokes, this is positively my favorite.

    Oh… and Gamma9 needs to GTFO and DIAF.

  12. BuddhaRhubarb says:

    lmfao :p It took me a minute to catch on, d’oh

  13. Grobstein says:

    George Lucas can Numa-roll me any time

    She is so sweet!

    I will buy 400 cases.

    @ #13: Your time couldn’t have been too valuable if you were going to watch a video about “The Boba Fett Mystique.”

    That was adorable, though don’t embed this on any epilepsy bulletin boards. Whether it would cause the onset of such or be an example thereof is up to you.

    BTW, “Pure BMW” sounds like a capsule review of the Bush administration.

  18. xadrian says:

    This is what happens when you read all your feeds late. I didn’t think for a minute this would be false.

    *le sigh*

  19. EhrichWeissBLF says:

    Xeni: I love you.

    I’m sorry, but you lose points for not HAVING LARGER HEADPHONES.
