Lightsaber Duel Breaks Out on French Street

A minor scuffle on a street in France turned ugly when the combatants pulled out their lightsabers.

You should always be kind to the old men in your neighborhood - you never know when one of them might just turn out to be a Jedi (or a Sith Lord). This home footage you see here to the right captured exactly that, when an argument in a small French street quickly escalated from a bunch of older men yelling at each other to a genuine Duel of the Fates.

In all seriousness, of course this isn't real - it's just somebody having fun with video editing software. As much as we might someday wish to have a genuine lightsaber, here they're just fighting with painted-over sticks.

But it goes to show you how much things like visuals and sound can affect the mood of a video. What could have been a silly scene of two old men waving sticks at each other turns into an epic battle between the Light Side and Dark Side of the Force.

Okay, maybe it's still a bit silly.

Saw this just minutes ago.

Laughed like mad. Till I couldn't breath.

Oh god! He had a back-up saber, too!

Loved it.

How many sticks does this old man have in his tractor?
Also, WHY THE HELL DOES HE HAVE STICKS IN HIS TRACTOR?!

*guffaw*

OMG French people fighting!

... and theres light-sabers!

AHAHAHAHAHAHHAH. Better than the last three installments of the SW-franchise COMBINED! <3

HE HAS ANOTHER STICK!

Why does he have another stick?

This is awesome, and actually does manage to make the mood a little cooler. It's still funny, but more in a 'parody of Star Wars' funny, than 'old men fighting funny.' This is something that wouldn't look out of place on a sketch show like French and Saunders or something.

Oh god adding the Empire's theme made all of this 10 times better.

And how was that lightsaber still on when it was out of the mans hand and on the ground? Don't they always deactivate when dropped?

Execute order 66.....

France? And no one surrendered?

/mandatory french surrendering unfunny "joke"

Oh god that was awesome.

Why would you not need an extra stick in your tractor?

If you drove a tractor you'd know.
Oh you'd know alright.

Though they have struck him down, he will become more powerful than they can ever imgaine (I know I probably butchered that quote). Kudos to the probably drunk old man for holding his own against two Sith Lords.

This is the funniest thing I've seen the whole week. Heck, it's been long since I cried of laughter.

ok, pretty obvious editting effect, but it's still better then most ACTUAL Star Wars products that have come out n the last decade.

hehehe but seriously they were properly going at it with those sticks... I mean lightsabers

quick! To the Millenium Tractor!!!

The force was strong with that one.

The Sith won :(

Okay this is just like that other video with the "gangs" fighting and then two members of the gangs pull out light sabers and start a duel, anyone know what that is? I forget

Unfortunately that was one of Frances greatest military victories.

That was awesome and silly at the same time.

Thanks, John Funk. Now i´ll have to wipe the pepsi i just sprayed over my screen laughing at this.

The most awesome thing i saw today.

Haha that's awesome, and very good use of video editing!

Ah, the French jokes never get old ^_^ well, unless you're French of course, but then you've got bigger problems to worry about...

OT: Nice vid, though the effect slipped towards the end when Mr Dual Wield moved one saber behind the car door - only real issue I noticed. I wonder what else this could be applied to...

Every real Jedi carries a spare lightsaber, only noobs carry only one.

Also, score one for the Sith!

I should be doing serios shit right now, but this i sway funnier. I'm going to watch it again.

I can't BELIEVE people beat me to the french jokes.

He is now stronger than anyone can imagine in their wildest dreams. ^.^

If I were French, I'd be worried about being French for sure.

Also you didn't notice how by the end, one of the lightsabers changed colors? From one red one blue, both turned blue.
