Dancing With the Star Wars: 'I'm Han Solo,' 'Hologram Girl' Get the Kinect Treatment
According to the experts at CVG, the Kinect gaming system has added a few "play-throughs" that allow users to dance along to numbers featuring Star Wars characters. It gets better (worse?): The backing tracks have been adapted from hit songs, resulting in such borderline Weird Al-style parodies as "I'm Han Solo" and "Hologram Girl." Play along, weep, etc. after the jump.
Listeners will likely know the original songs as the hits "Ridin' Solo" by Jason Derulo and "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani, and Star Wars loyalists may be disgruntled to see their beloved franchise further driven face-first into the marketing muck. Not me, though, if only because I've been waiting for the Smiths' "I Want the One I Can't Have" to turn up as "I Want the Obi-Wan I Can't Have" for at least 20 years now.
