Is it really a single-link YouTube post if you have three links?

No.

This would be even better if they were recumbent snowboards and they had some steampunk goggles on.

It's videos like this that remind me how I've been snowboarding for like 10 years and still can't do cool jumps.

I have a really hard time with the Star Wars fanboy videos. Why not Cagney and Lacey on a snowboard? Why not Welcome Back Kotter on a snowboard? Why not China Syndrome on a snowboard?

I think that the "Star Wars" as seen in X reality is played out. Darth Vader as a stockbroker. Han Solo as a waiter. Golfers with light sabers. There's nothing left in the tank. Just my opinion.

All I thought watching the video was "man, they have a lot of free time...I wish I had free time like that."

Incomplete without a massive Jar Jar face-plant.

Well if we're doing YouTube snowboarding drama, here's the winner of the Burton snowboard poaching challenge, starring my neighbor.

I don't think that the "Star Wars" as seen in X reality is all played out. I agree that it has been done by far too many people but it's not been done to death if this video is any indicator as I thought it stood out above the crowd.

Just guessing, but I'm thinking it's the lack of lightsabers?

I need this to be a video game I can play RIGHT NOW.

I'd like to see 3 Musketeer/Starwars.

I'd like to see the Fonz jumping the shark on a snowboard. Please make this happen.

Technical point: Wouldn't a lightsaber instantly vaporize snow? It just leaves a dinky little trail when they drag them.

I'm confused by the narrative. How did the jedi get away from the stormtroopers? And what was the deal with the Jawas? They are a desert race, how did they get so good on snowboards?

The graphics are nice and all, but why should I care about these characters?

Still, I look forward to other crossovers games like this: Tony Hawk 8; Millers Crossing, and ATV Madness; Event Horizon.

The sample "you're all clear kid, now let's blow this thing and go home!" should not be able to give me a visceral reaction any more.

And yet, it does. CURSE YOU HAN SOLO FOR BEING AWESOME FOREVER.
