Jar Jar Binks beaten up on subway train

Jar Jar Binks is the worst character in Star Wars history, movie history, and perhaps in the entire history of human imagination. (The cartoon stick-figures in cave paintings have more depth and more believable dialogue.) So even if you are a devoted pacifist, you can’t help but giggle a little bit at a just-released video from the pranksters at Improv Everywhere, in which a guy dressed as Jar Jar Binks tries to bring happiness and joy into the lives of NYC commuters and instead ends up getting pummeled. (The video ends with a strident plea to track down the pummelers, but if you think this is real, you may want to check the calendar.) Check out the video after the jump…

    They should beat up the guy at the end asking for help.

    It’s so sad in this day and age that Gungan hate crimes still exist. What’s even scarier is that I know what species Jar Jar Binks is.

    April Fools!

    I’m pretty sure the white dude is Doyle from Heroes.

    I ust love that after 12 years, the people that seemed to love the original Star Wars movie waaaay too much still care about this. You didn’t like the character, other people did (kids especially at the time). Far worse things have happened in movies. Sure his dialogue was terrible but there’s plenty of people who thought (and still think) exactly the same about Yoda. The hate for the character completely overshadows the fact that unlike the 90% terrible Episode II there’s actually a lot to like in Episode I.

      That’s your opinion. Episode I sucked @ss.

    When Darth Maul shouwed up it was officially the best video ever.

    EW, you ruined it by noting that it was an April Fool’s gag. Once you know that there’s no fun in watching it. Why not tell us that Santa isn’t real too?

    • Jason

      I just assume anything having to do with Star Wars on April 1st is a gag.

    • Tony

      Um, Spoiler Alert? I got kids, bra.

    seriously, that’s what you get in New York subway, if you get in someone’s face like he did… what did he expect, haha!

    I was so ready for the drunk Ewoks from the Today Show to pop up. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, just search “drunk ewoks” on Youtube. You’ll find them.)

    • Tom Bergeron

      The drunk Ewoks are the best.

  • BlackIrish4094

    Funny as hell but that would get your @ss beaten, I take the subway every day unfortunately.
