So. Remember that incredibly revealing - if controversial - video that went viral a few weeks back, 10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman? Y'know, the one featuring a young woman being repeatedly harassed on the streets of New York.

Well, despite the obviously important message of the video, created by the anti-street harassment organization Hollaback!, the message of the video - that such harassment is fundamentally wrong, and needs to be eliminated - has been somewhat muddied by accusations of bias and racism.

So, it's actually pretty fortunate that a new parody video has emerged (Don't worry, I'm not going to say a new force has awakened...). A video that might just, through sheer force of Star Wars-related awesomeness, be able to be both hilariously funny, and also capable of making the exact same, crucially important point as the original.

You can take a look at it below:

And...I couldn't love that video much more (nicely played, Are We There Yet?)...

I mean, we're talking...

The perfect use of sound captured from the original trilogy...


Actual skeeviness...

And, of course, a seriously creepy Father/Daughter moment...

Which, added to an actual awareness of the issues involved, equals AWESOME.

What do you guys think, though?
