VIDEO: Jobs Introduces iPad to Rebel Alliance

A clever video editor has combined the iPad keynote heard back in January with the Rebel Alliance's Death Star briefing from Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope). With a few extra sound clips and dialogue thrown in, the resulting video is a hilarious spin on the device's big reveal. The little details make the iPad mockery so much more golden--the roll of Han Solo's eyes, someone sneezing "BS," and the quick little dialogue between Luke and Wedge.

"Nah, it's BS," Wedge said after listening to Jobs' "magical" iPad promises. "I'm not falling for it this time."

"Nah it's not," Luke replied in a simplified voice. "Because you can browse the web and that's really good..."

Check out the video for yourself, pasted below:

    LMFAO!!! That was awesome.

    Hmmm what next iForce or iSaber how about iStar. Jokes aside this pad over all is a failure thanks to their closed mentality like the Great Wall of China but in the end serving only to the aid of others. They could have allowed Flash, better storage options, and more ram. Their controlled content approach hurts the over all use, makes the conglomerates happy but ruins it for the user.

    It was terrible but I still laughed at the idea.
  • tacoslave
    even they thought it sucked.

    This would have been epic if they had Ackbar at the end yelling "It's a trap!"
