Star Wars fans will be beside themselves with joy this holiday season thanks to Gamervision, who have put together an awesome ‘Star Wars Christmas Special’ for their holiday greeting this year. The Star Wars parody Christmas special has already been viewed over 28,000 times and has only been online for a day. If you haven’t seen it yet be sure to check it out below!

The guys at Gamervision explain the inspiration behind their concept in the description on the video page:

“It’s Christmas time, and while today that means people grinching about whether or not you should say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” there was a time when the biggest issue people had was which televised Christmas special they were going to watch. We’ve all seen the one with Rudolph and that one with the Heat Miser, and I’m sure the amount of hours spent watching the adventures of Frosty the Snowman would be shameful. Though those were all enjoyable when we were kids, we haven’t had a real grown-up Christmas special in a long time. That’s where this video comes in.”

The video is made from cut together Star Wars footage with a little bit of Christmas flair thrown in (presents, a Christmas tree and the epic “I shot my eye out!” scene from ‘A Christmas Story’), and dubbed over with a funny Christmas storyline. I don’t want to spoil the fun, so I’ll leave you at that. Watch the Christmas special below and let us know what you think in the comments!
