Bringing The Sadness: 2012 Disney Star Wars Dance-Off

R2-D2: he wants to die so hard right now.

Well folks, it's that time of the year again: the 2012 Star Wars Weekends dance-off routines debuted Friday at the Disney parks, and let me tell you: plenty of sadness/rage to be had. A brief rundown of what to expect from the videos after the jump (WARNING: I chewed up a couch cushion like a bad dog trying to watch them):

Momma Said Knock You Out - LL Cool J

Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
Smooth Criminal - Alien Ant Farm / Michael Jackson
The Way I Are by Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson
Glad You Came - The Wanted
Till The World Ends - Britney Spears
Moves Like Jagger - Maroon 5
International Love - Pitbull
Rolling in the Deep - Adele
This is What Rock and Roll Looks Like - Porcelain Black
Tonight - Enrique Iglesias
Starships - Nicki Minaj
Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO
We Are Young - FUN
Good Feeling - Flo Rida
Battle Without Honor or Humanity - Tomoyasu Hotei

That's right -- because one LMFLOL song just wasn't enough they had to include TWO. "Such a great album," I imagine the park executives said at the song-selection meeting before bursting into laughter and lighting their cigars with $1,000 bills.

Hit the jump for some individual songs, followed by the full 20-minute performance. Normally I'd say stick it to the man for 20-minutes and watch the entire thing at work, but, I dunno, maybe if you're feeling masochistic.

Thanks to Ricky, who I'm pretty sure works for Disney and is hopefully one of those "any coverage is good coverage" kind of people. UPDATE: Does not work for Disney so I can stop feeling bad now.

There are Comments.
  • Needs more dubstep. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that it is REALLY hard to dance in a Boba Fett or Vader costume.

    So Sad for the Star WARS FANS. The people in the crowd are parents who didn't know Star Wars and their children sure as hell don't know. If this was me as a kid... I would of been scared and confused. There was no dancing with Star Wars. Lucas sold his soul to Disney.

  • RareAwesomeman

    while all of the dance competitions are slowly rapping one of my favorite series i hate the announcers more

  • The R2 D2 afro is a Family Guy rip-off!

  • Virna Vee

    The emperor one is the most
    painful. . . and although it's cool to think that Boba Fett can bust a
    mean move - it cheapens the experience by having slack jawed yokels
    laughing and applauding to this whole experience. Shame on you, Disney, I
    hex you with a teen sex scandal of your most promising star.

  • Joe Crocker

    Han, Please shoot ME first!!!

  • john

    Everybody needs to stop pretending that Star Wars is sacred.

  • james

    Star Wars isn't Sacred but people should be offended... what if they did this for lord of the rings? I bet your first in line eh?

  • My childhood just died.

  • Michael Spurlock

    The "BURN IN HELL, GEORGE LUCAS" T-shirts are starting to make sense now.

    It's like the "Star Wars Holiday Special" all over again.

  • Guest

    At least they didn't make a Disney themed strip club. wow....that would be horrible....

    For the love of pancakes, please don't make this happen!!!

  • Wow. i used to be a big star wars fan but after all the crap lucas has done to the series i have lost all love and respect in it. such a shame really, he had a good thing in the movies.... and when i say that i mean the originals...

  • Everyone in the audience who was cheering and whooping it up needs a direct application of a flame thrower to the face. Courtesy of Boba Fett.

  • Jadis

    this is just wrong. The whole thing. I feel like I just watched Star Wars get raped.

  • Mo Alexander

    By a mouse...

  • Scruffy would never traumatize himself by watching these, but he's sure the ones that were into it were all waiting for Jar Jar to show up.

  • Mo Alexander

    Look directly to the music for the reason this really sucks. Those songs are garbage...pop radio garbage.

  • Shaun9lives

    I'm not disagreeing with your assessment of the music. But your comment seems to suggest that this would be OK with another soundtrack, where obviously, it would not.

  • "The Way I Are by Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson"
    Ugh... the title's super dumb and so are their names "Keri" is like "Carry" if it was pronounced by a southerner, but I'm sure they pronounce it like the real name regardless.
