In the 12 years since Star Wars: The Phantom Menace hit multiplexes across the world, we've been left wondering, "This can't be from the same guy who brought us the original trilogy, right?" It wouldn't be so crazy to posit a theory that the real George Lucas was kidnapped and held hostage for years while an impostor ran roughshod over the Lucasfilm empire and created the prequel trilogy that crapped all over the legacy that Star Wars nerds held dear, right? That's the premise behind George Lucas Strikes Back, a nerdy, reference-filled gem from the kids at Slick Gigolo that makes a fantastic addition to the "trailers for movies that don't exist" viral shelf. And besides, there's something hilarious about a guy in a Darth Maul mask burying his face in a mound of cocaine while Stormtroopers dance around him.
