Advertising Classic: Star Wars Teaser Trailer

Go to: Star Wars (via Lauren Davis)

I don't have to imagine hard that it's 1976. Just remember back to the time when Star Wars had just hit the scene. As someone who loves the film itself but isn't too interested in the whole "Star Wars Universe", I'm still kind of dumbstruck to have witnessed a pop culture phenomenon emerge from a naive fantasy about tie fighters, Death Stars, lightsabers, space smugglers, Jedi, Jawas, and that quasi-religious vaguely New Age invocation "May the Force be with you."

Not bad for a homage to those Flash Gordon serials.
