Forget Episode VII, watch ‘JJ Abrams Star Wars – The Musical’

Are you a late-model “Star Trek” fan with issues about your guy, J.J. Abrams jumping ship in order to direct the next “Star Wars” film? Or maybe a “Star Wars” devotee filled with dread at having your favorite franchise be under the control of someone who’s directed two “Star Trek” films?

If so, there’s a musical for you. “JJ Abrams Star Wars – The Musical,” to be precise.

Picture Darth Vader and Abrams singing at each other on a pier. Picture Vader shaming Abrams — well, a very poor look-alike at least — with a line like, “So you think // you can walk right in // You who joined with the other side // You now betray every ‘Star Trek’ fan // You have crushed their pride.” And then Abrams’ rejoinder, “It is true // That I have jumped ship // I was always a Star (Trek) Wars guy // I cannot pass on this perfect chance // Let’s see eye to eye.”

This is YouTube silliness at its best. It’s topical, it’s funny (sort of), and it’s camp of the highest order. What’s not to love?
