Default George Lucas is mocking us.... Again.



Remember the photo of George wearing that "Han Shot First" t-shirt? There's no doubt he was mocking the OT fans who hated the changes that he made with the special editions.

Well, it looks like he's at it again. Check out this shirt: http://www.80stees.com/products/Nooo...ader-Shirt.asp
You better believe that shirt is officially licensed. George is trying to profit off of your hatred of him. In a way I kind of admire him for this. He's like the ultimate troll.

I've never seen him wearing the Han Shot First shirt before. That's classic. It cracks me up.

Good lord, lighten up folks. While I'm not a fan of Han shooting first(I thought it took away his redemption by the end of ROTJ), I'm loving that shirt. I'd wear that and the "Nooo!!" shirt
Do you really have something to say or are you just in love with the sound of your keyboard?

The real crime in that video, is that the uploader said the prequels were awesome in one of the annotations.
Hates:
3D, 3D printed on the front covers of steelbooks, digital copies (UV & iTunes), "retailer exclusive" bonus features.

Also, f*ck you, Disney UK for giving "The Avengers" a stupid name in the UK! Will NEVER use the UK "name".

I'm a fan, I don't hate him (I despise some of the changes he made, but I don't hate him) and I still won't go watch TPM next weekend. Although I'm really not a fan of TPM or AOtC.

By the way, I think that shirt is great (Iv'e seen it before) and I think it is hillarious that he is actually wearing it.

I would wear it, I think it's cool. I actually own the Han shot first plus I also have shirt with Han on it saying You're damn right I shoot first.. I think people need to stop at being offended with everything they see, it's getting ridiculous, being all PC is so 1990's

But is that a Revenge of the Sith "Noooo!", or a Blu-ray Return of the Jedi "Noooo!"? It's so hard to keep the fan-whines straight.

(And it's not "mocking" so much as that contemptuous mix of pretending you're "going along" with your mass-consensus fan whines to be One of the Gang, like the times he makes unspontaneous Holiday Special jokes, in the hopes we'll all forgive him for kidding us about it like good manly fellows--Remember Michael Bay daring us $10,000 to find the Ghetto-bots in Transformers 3?
It's the sort of literal, if disgruntled, "If you can't beat 'em, cash in on 'em. ")

It's not that hard to stay away; this is TPM we're talking about here.

I'm surprised that more fans haven't picked up on this. There is an emotional and behavioural contempt in his actions and statements, and I believe it's calculated, i.e. he says and does just enough to incur the ire from fans, but it's translucent, so he doesn't spurn them or their dollars outright. It's almost akin to a Sith Lord exercising a Jedi mind trick.

Whenever I see or hear people complaining about something from Star Wars I automatically think of this:

And i'm sure George thinks the same aswell. Thus the said mocking of you.
I'm interested in trading for The Hunger Games & Hunger Games: Catching Fire BB SBs. PM if interested.

You know, for all things you could ever say about George Lucas, the man has a great sense of humor. He enjoys it when people poke fun at him and Star Wars. I don't see the wearing of this shirt as much more than that.
