These days, it’s difficult to get out of bed in the morning without being sent into a mild panic attack. Disturbing news headlines. The looming threat of climate change. Sometimes the simple act of being online is enough to set your teeth on edge and make you want to throw your laptop out the window. So, why not take a break from the turmoil and relax by listening to the most soothing sound imaginable: 300 Jedi knights massacring 60,000 medieval soldiers?
This visual representation of a Pure Moods album comes from YouTube user SergiuHellDragoonHQ as part of his “Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator” series, which has previously featured 1,000 German soldiers vs. 40,000 Persians, 1,000 T. Rex vs. 100,000 Zombies, and 30,000 Jedi vs. 30,000 Chuck Norris. All in the name of science, of course. This particular battle starts out small with one Jedi up against 50 sword-wielding soldiers and slowly escalates into a digital war crime that doubles as a white noise machine. The ceaseless whirring of light sabers intermingled with the war cries of faceless medieval footmen is enough to put you into a dreamless sleep. So, turn off your phone, take a few deep breaths, and relax.
