(via) Do you remember the “premake” trailer for Raiders of the Lost Ark, which imagined what the movie would have looked like had it been released in 1951, assembled from old film clips? Well, get ready for the premake of The Empire Strikes Back, circa 1950.
I whole-heartedly approve of Improv Everywhere’s latest mission, which took place in the main branch of the New York Public Library.

Directed by Francesco Calabrese, it repurposes loads of 80s scifi movie imagery to
visualize the song “Tiger” by Amari. And, as mentioned, it is wacky.
