Phil Collins’ Trench Run

It takes a special kind of nerd to even have the inkling to sync up a Star Wars video with their favorite music in the hopes that the entirety of YouTube finds it compelling and genius enough to make it go viral.  Then again, it takes a special kind of nerd to start a movement aimed at getting their favorite British singer/actor/percussive genius knighted in the hopes that the entirety of the web-browsing public finds it compelling enough to join in and help make history.  Needless to say, we can identify with the person who made this video of “In The Air Tonight” synced up to the famed “Trench Run” in the original Star Wars film.

That being said, it’s a nice try, but it doesn’t exactly inspire us to new heights due to the fact that the action doesn’t really sync up in any special way, shape or form.  X-Wing Fighters explosions are devoid of punishing drum beats and a few sound-ups on the action would’ve been nice.  Not to be nitpicky, but if we were going to sync up anything in the film with a Phil Collins song we’d probably use “One More Night” to sync up with the “grand ceremony” scene at the end.  As both Han and Luke receive their medals it would subliminally plant the notion into the minds of viewers that Phil Collins deserves to be honored for all of his valiant musical efforts and that perhaps the only suitable honor is Knighthood.  So, if you’re paying attention Star Wars-Phil Collins sync’er-upper, you have your mission, now go forth.  Maybe we’ll even bestow you with our site’s highest honor…though we haven’t really figured out what that is yet.
