Great shot, kid! That was one in a million.

This is a short post about a highly concentrated nugget of creativity that's been brewing on the internet for many years.

Back in 2009, a web designer named Casey Pugh took a copy of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and chopped it into 475 15-second clips. He asked for submissions recreating each of the 15-second clips in whatever manner worked best for the volunteer artists. Pugh received thousands of submissions, portraying the cast of Star Wars with everything from Lego pieces to Yellow Submarine Beatles caricatures.

The final result is an amazing adventure into the imagination and artistic prowess of hundreds of Star Wars fans. It's two hours and five minutes of solid entertainment, with a staggering density of uncommon interpretations of the familiar story.

And it's available on Youtube, in its entirety, right now. Enjoy!
