I was browsing through YouTube a few days ago, trying to figure out the site. I know it is popular, but I very rarely use it. As I was poking around, I came across a video (it ended up being a commercial) that showed a group of dogs “singing” what was labeled as a “strangely familiar tune.”
Let’s be honest, I took the link because the dogs were cute. 🙂 Still, as the video was playing, I couldn’t help but wonder what song they were performing. Here’s the video:
I could not figure it out. Finally, I read the caption on the video and figured out that it was the Star Wars theme song. Suddenly, I understood why I was so clueless. I can honestly say, I have never seen any of the movies.
I vaguely remember having a picture book based on the movies as a kid, but I truly can’t tell you what it was about. It just never did it for me.
This probably isn’t something I should admit online. Every time I mention this fact in a conversation, everyone just looks at me like I am insane or I committed a crime. One person actually argued with me, saying it is “impossible” for a 30-something American to have never seen the movies.
What can I say, I am not a sci-fi fan. There are a few movies in the genre I have seen over the years. There may have even been one or two I enjoyed–but Star Wars isn’t one of them.
I tend to doubt that I am the only one, but I could be wrong. Maybe I really do live in a bubble. What do you think? Have you seen Star Wars? Does it freak you out that I haven’t? Are there any classic movies that you have never seen? Did you find the dogs to be as adorable as I did? 🙂
