A Bad Lip Reading of THE FORCE AWAKENS Features Mark Hamill as Han Solo...Written by James Zahn
Bad Lip Reading is one of YouTube's finest channels, and one permanently marked with "legendary" status here at Rock Father HQ thanks to their Star Wars parody, SEAGULLS! (Stop It Now) - A Bad Lip Reading of The Empire Strikes Back. Our four-year-old has the song and it's dialogue breaks completely memorized.
