Stand Up To Cancer’s Star Wars Parody

It might have been around for a while now, but this video from Stand Up To Cancer is both funny and very worth, thanks to its championing of a massively important cause, in the shape of cancer awareness, so it’s still worthy of note now.

Featuring the cause’s Celebrity Ambassadors – Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Jaime King, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg and Emma Stone – along with Star Wars actor, and all round shouty bad-ass Samuel L. Jackson – the video recreates classic Star Wars scenes with a comic spin.

My personal favourite moment is Bill Hader’s impression of a Taun Taun. Chillingly realistic…

Stand Up To Cancer’s mission statement reads as follows, and needless to say, it is a cause that deserves attention, and as much investment as everyone can spare:

Stand Up To Cancer is a new initiative created to accelerate groundbreaking
cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives.
SU2C’s goal is to bring together the best and the brightest in the cancer
community, encouraging collaboration instead of competition. By galvanizing the
entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support
for this effort.

This is where the end of cancer begins.
