What Happens When You Mix Emo-ballads and Star Wars?


Scattered Trees have written a song called “Love and Leave.” It’s the usual emo-ballad: mopey, sad, slow, you know the drill. But the video. It’s sad Storm Troopers! Washing dishes! And making upset faces at a girl dressed like Amidala, complete with doomed romance! Oh, and Boba Fett. Oh, and the band is wearing Stormtrooper gear while they play their instruments, too.

Remarkably amusing music video. (Thanks to Rob from Topless Robot.)
