The YouTube mashup is an homage to all the droids big and small who’ve charmed us over the years, from R2 and C-3PO to chicken walkers to those giraffe-flamingo things. (OK, we know they’re called B1 battle droids).
Before this epic supercut, we didn’t realize how much droid-related footage there was in the Star Wars films. Sure, the background droids don’t do much, but now we appreciate the fact that there are droids for every occasion: battle droids and walking droids and police escort droids and droids shaped like little balls that roll around a lot.
The audio for Eclectic Method’s mashup consists primarily of droid noises, which serves as a nice reminder of just how many kinds of electronic beeps make up the pantheon of droid-speak. Of course, given that this is the Star Wars universe, it’s possible that most of those beeps translate to various forms of “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”
But that’s what makes mashups like these so irresistible—you can pretend the Star Wars universe is just one giant droid party.
