I'm not gonna lie to you, Marge: I LOL'ed at this mashup of the Curiosity mission video and the Jawa scene from Star Wars.

Curiosity: This is not the droid you're looking for!
A mashup between the Jawa attack scene from Star Wars: A New Hope and NASA's Mars Science Laboratory rover called Curiosity. It's a fun idea and I hope you get a laugh out of it. Hope Mr Lucas doesn't mind ;) No copyright is being asserted in this video. It is for entertainment purposes only. No Mars Rovers were hurt in the making of this film. :)

Thanks to the ever-creative Astro0 at
