WHEN GEEK MET GEEK

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

IT’S not a gi­ant leap for Jewish fans of the Star Wars films to see a like­ness be­tween fret­ful an­droid C-3PO and a neu­rotic neb­bish. But cul­ture web­site Vul­ture took the com­par­i­son one step fur­ther with their “Woody Allen ‘Star Wars’ remix” video in hon­our Spot the dif­fer­ence: C-3PO and Woody Allen of the new film The Force Awak­ens. Vul­ture writ­ers Diane Bul­lock and Mike Schus­ter said: “C-3PO is sur­rounded by war­riors, but he’s just a self-doubt­ing neb­bish, al­ways wor­ried. In other words, like a Woody Allen pro­tag­o­nist.”

In the video, footage from Star Wars films are ac­com­pa­nied by mu­sic from the open­ing se­quence of Woody Allen’s Man­hat­tan, but with a voiceover from the droid him­self de­liv­er­ing some of his best lines. “We seem to be made to suf­fer. It is our lot in life,” C-3PO says, be­fore con­clud­ing, “We’re doomed.”
