In an awesome galaxy far, far away in the YouTube universe there exists a reality where Darth Vader and Boba Fett wear kicks and a light-up helmets. Darth Punk is a mashup world where Star Wars meets Daft Punk to created fun cross overs like Boba Funk and the Death Star‘s laser discs with speakers.
This mashup of the popular sci-fi franchise and French EDM duo comes from Infectious Designer – a short film creator who has worked in the video game and sci-fi industries. The 5-minute video is really cool and features lots and lots of light-up kicks and robot helmets inspired by the light-up helmets Darf Punk wear. There are numerous puns and references for fans of either Star Wars or Daft Punk and features a cool electronic tune mixed with Darth Vader breathing and Tiefighter sounds.
The video is cleverly entitled Darth Punk – The Funk Awakens and is just one of the many examples of how the world is bursting with anticipation for the December 2015 release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens:
One day Vader and Fett will recruit for the dark side, disguised as an electronic music duo… they will be arresting ears and administering intergalactic rhythm and beats. The Rebels won’t stand a chance. This is their music video, featuring ‘Dj Gonk’
