Here’s a genius way to make a lot of cash as a busker this month: play the Star Wars cantina music outside movie theaters.
YouTube user Gilbert Chavez, who was waiting in line to see The Force Awakens, caught a band of Star Wars buskers rocking out in the street, even wearing the masks of those famous Mos Eisley Cantina musicians.
We all know and love that cantina song, but there’s something you might not know that makes the song even better: the name of its fictional music genre. In Star Wars, this type of music used to be known as “jizz.” Yes. That was the real, official name before the creation of the new canon. Jizz. You’re welcome.
