He's still a wussy.

2003-08-21 04:08:17 PM  
Oh Yeah!?

Well my Jedi can beat up your Sith!
2003-08-21 04:11:10 PM  
He's still never going to get laid.
2003-08-21 04:21:47 PM  
But Baio warns that the lesson is "if you don't want to risk being the next Star Wars Kid, you should be very careful about what you videotape and where you keep it."

hehehe...In my video, I am seen brandishing what might be mistaken for a light saber....

Everything old is new again.

Claiming that their son has been humiliated, his parents are suing the parents of the teens who put the video on the Web.

Makes sense. The kids did have to steal the tape. Theft is illegal. He should at least be able to get them for that.

That, or he should take him out with his light saber.
2003-08-21 05:04:13 PM  
Actually, from what i remember of this case from when it frist came out, the kid recorded it on school equipment then left the tape lieing around somewhere at school. So I don't think they stole anything.

Newsflash: Star Wars kid is the stupid shlubb that we all thought he was after all. What an idiot. Lighten up, tubby, stop taking yourself so seriously, and enjoy your 15 hours of fame. It could be all you'll ever have in this life. DUMBASS tag would have been appropriate.

"I want my life back," he said in an e-mail interview with the National Post newspaper, a Canadian daily.

2003-08-21 05:07:13 PM  
All he had to do after this was start a website and make a new "episode" every two weeks. He would have made bank, and he's already famous. Most people liked him for his enthusiasm, not because he looked lame. (No, I'm serious -- that's usually what I read about him, that he looks so into it that people recall their own "singing in front of a mirror with a hairbrush as a mic" times and laugh). Or maybe the news agencies are being kind.
2003-08-21 05:07:46 PM  
Ok, somebody find a post of that website, I'm dying for a good laugh and I forgot all about Mr. Fatty Jedi
2003-08-21 05:07:57 PM  
Old News... what a waste...

am i the only one who finds the pic of staxandlax very annoying?

staxandlax = starwars kid
2003-08-21 05:11:26 PM  
um, I've never heard of him, actually. But I'm still not interested.
2003-08-21 05:11:28 PM  
I must say that I do feel sorry for this kid a bit. But that video has given me some good laughs. Anyone have links to the modified versions of this video with the hulk background??
2003-08-21 05:11:40 PM this porker going to throw away his only chance to get laid?

This might be the only time he gets the chance to bust his cherry!
2003-08-21 05:12:53 PM  
When I was 17 I was video taped pissing out a hotel room window. Except the damn window was sealed shut...I treasure that video as much as my wedding video.

Both are reasons I quit drinking.
2003-08-21 05:13:13 PM  
I'd hate to be known all over the net as "Ghyslain" too.
2003-08-21 05:13:32 PM  
Maybe if we all stop posting now it will go away.
2003-08-21 05:13:44 PM  
I guess we should feel bad for him, what with him becoming a celebrity and winning an iPOD. How tragic.
2003-08-21 05:14:26 PM  
Ya know, if that fat little fark spent more time losing weight and less time acting like a farking nerd, he might get laid once in awhile.

Mabye that little fattie can do some subway commercials or something.

shiat. If Jared from subway can bang chicks and make cash this little butter-ball can too.
2003-08-21 05:14:34 PM  
The sad thing is, I thouroughly enjoyed his tape more than Attack of the Clones and the Phantom Menace combined. Lucas should hire this kid to direct the third movie.
2003-08-21 05:14:46 PM  
Meanwhile, the teen's supporters are working on his behalf[...]have started a petition to get him into the next "Star Wars" movie, which Lucasfilm Ltd. is currently filming in Australia.

Wow... the origin of Porkins!
2003-08-21 05:14:54 PM  
GurneyHalleck - you are just the kind of person who makes this so hard for him. I guarantee you have done some stupid stuff in your life. Are you telling me it's fine with you if someone put it up for millions to see? This kid taped himself, but what if someone else taped him and put him up? Would you still have that same attitude

If this kid uploaded it himself, then he should have to face the humiliation. But he was just having some fun. Those kids who did it are not sorry in the LEAST either. F*** em. Rot in hell you little shiats.
2003-08-21 05:14:59 PM  
Whats really sad is this kid hasn't found a way to make money on the whole deal. If the websites that have things video are so popular, why not make his own and sell ad space. Hell, sell autographed shirts of him and his lightsaber. It just unamerican not to make cash on your 15 seconds of internet fame.
2003-08-21 05:15:26 PM  
Someone post a link, i still havent seen this video, and im on a mac.
2003-08-21 05:15:43 PM  
Should I pretend to care, or what?

I'd kick his lard ass if I was his age and on his school. And it would be funny, too.
2003-08-21 05:16:18 PM  
I don't understand why he refuses to embrace it. He's inadvertently become The Next Big Thing on the Internet and soon enough, he'll be forgotten. He should go all out, show up on Leno/Letterman/Conan... put up his own site where people can post their own videos... accept every moment of the spotlight he can get. What the hell! These lawsuits certainly aren't making him less noticeable, are they? He could make this into something memorable, but he whines and biatches and obviously has parents who are looking to squeeze a few bucks out of it. What a waste.
2003-08-21 05:17:34 PM  
EmptyG. I think you underestimate what people would do for money. FOr a million I would whack off on the 50 yard line of the superbowl wearing a nuns hat.
2003-08-21 05:17:39 PM  
You can tell that kid is a whiny douche, he must have been asking for it. He also screwed up his chance to make a whole lot of money for doing hardly anything, all he would have had to do is be himself once a month and intarweb geeks would shell out $9.95 each easily.
2003-08-21 05:18:30 PM  
anyone want to see this guy in action....go here

Others have started a petition to get him into the next "Star Wars" movie, which Lucasfilm Ltd. is currently filming in Australia.

A spokeswoman at the California-based film company would not say whether filmmaker George Lucas is considering the request.

I think that would be kind of cool. Have him as a 'Jedi Kid' or something....

More likely LucasFilms is probably looking into suing him for copyright infrigement or something.....
2003-08-21 05:19:35 PM  
Here's another good site with various versions...
2003-08-21 05:19:35 PM  
You'd have to be the same sort of brainwashed nimrod who thought the original film was entertaining to find this kid's video the least bit amusing. The only genuine laugh this generates is most definitely mean-spirited in nature. Or else you're just another pop-culture tool.
2003-08-21 05:19:39 PM  
you know why he's so popular? why everyone takes such delight in making fun of him? because he's ostrich'ing the whole situation. this kid obviously has problems with bullies in meatspace, and the same problems carry over online.

his dumb ass should do leno, play it up - release additional footage of himself. and the kicker: sell t-shirts.

people back away from internet fads just about the same second someone tries to make money off of them. it'd all have been forgotten by the time school started back up.

but no. he tried to hide from it all summer. and the lawsuit sure ain't helpin anything, though i'm sure he's just pretending that'll go away too.

Star Wars Kid now suing media for constantly reminding people of the Star Wars Kid.

"Personally, I sing and bop along to TV theme songs," she adds. "Embarrassing, yes. But also a part of being human."

put a farking sock in it, nitwit. singing along to TV theme songs is not even remotely "part of being human".

i'd definitely do that for fifty grand.
probably 25.

Ya got that right. ITs funny as hell and I'm one mean bastard. I also make fun or retards and christopher reeve.

2003-08-21 05:22:23 PM  
I just had to watch the videos again. .... ROFL!
2003-08-21 05:22:27 PM  
...shows the slightly portly teen awkwardly twirling a golf ball retriever...

Slightly portly? Yeah, and on friday nights I like to get "a wee bit tipsy".
2003-08-21 05:24:18 PM  
"Farkers wonder why this is still in the news."

Ummm...because you put it there by submitting it?
2003-08-21 05:24:30 PM  
Have they removed this video from the net? Can't find it anywhere. Sucks, I wanna see this tubby bastuhd.
