Guy Makes Fake Sad Tribute Video For His Brother

Everyone knows the formula for a sad tribute video. Sad music plays as the camera zooms in on a picture of a certain person that is ill or has passed on. As a brotherly prank, one guy took his brother’s prom picture and slowly zoomed in with serious music playing. It is simply labeled ‘A Tribute To My Brother’ with no further explanation. The camera keeps zooming in closer and closer to his face, giving away that the whole video is a fun prank. It was posted online in March, but just went viral now after the prankster posted it to Reddit

I Hope To Make The Good People Of New Orleans Proud With My Portrayal Of Chewbacca

With The Force Awakens opening in theaters Friday, I find myself reflecting on this wild and wonderful Star Wars journey that started so long ago. Its been 40 years since I first put on the Chewbacca costume, and I can honestly say that its just as exciting today as it was in the beginning. No matter how much time passes, I feel the same level of responsibility every time I portray Chewbacca, and it is my sincere hope that my performance in this new film will continue to make the people of New Orleans proud.

As a U.K.-born actor with no ties to the American South, its hard to fathom how I ended up playing such an iconic symbol of the Cajun way of life. But nonetheless, each and every time I don the Wookiee suit, I do my absolute best to portray Chewbacca as the metaphor for the hardworking, free-spirited, family-oriented folks in the Big Easy that George Lucas always intended.

One thing Ive always tried to keep in mind while playing the Chewbacca character is that New Orleans isnt just a cityits a lifestyle. The culture and traditions arent just trotted out on special occasions; theyre lived and breathed, day in and day out. So, no matter what the scene or mood, Ive always endeavored to make Chewie loud and proud in his identity, to make the Nawlins in him shine through in every situation.

…people with a finely tuned ear will certainly catch more than a hint of Creole in Chewies moans.

Of course, I dont go overboard with the accent, but people with a finely tuned ear will certainly catch more than a hint of Creole in Chewies moans. Ive been closely studying the people of New Orleans since before we began filming A New Hope, trying to translate their unique spirit into every one of Chewies on-screen adventures. So when you see him whizzing through swarms of TIE fighters in the Millennium Falcon, you should just as easily be able to envision him cutting through the high reeds of the swamp in an airboat or lounging in a low-key jazz bar. And just as he bravely risks it all to save Han from Jabbas clutches, so he wouldve done everything in his power to rescue the folks of the Lower Ninth stranded on their roofs after Katrina.

Ultimately, its not for me to judge whether Ive succeeded in capturing the essence of NOLA, but know that my heartand Chewieshave always been firmly rooted in the French Quarter. And when you watch The Force Awakens this weekend, just remember: This ones for you, New Orleans.

Oh, and one more thing: Geaux Saints!

After Diesel’s 4-minute speech he closes in saying, “The only thing I could say is”…as he breaks into song with the movie’s closing melody: ‘See You Again.’

Diesel has even named his daughter Pauline in honor of his friend, but to him, Paul was so much more than that.

This movie is emotionally so much more powerful that anything the world would expect. said Diesel in an interview.

“First of all, you have to understand that I have a lot of best friends and I have a lot of brothers. And I have a really big family. But I only had one Paul Walker.”
