Mike Nichols, superstar editor who achieved fame by re-editing Star Wars Episodes I and II as the “Phantom Editor,” has just released the latest installment in his series of shorts Two Guys Drinking At A Bar. He’s gotten a lot of mail from fans who have complained that the credits of his shows are often longer than the actual content, so he made this new episode as a response. I love this guy! Read on for more clips and info about the series…
The first thing I highly recommend you do is go back now and watch the entire series of shorts. They’re mostly under two minutes each and it’s a must if you want to fully appreciate the joke. But trust me – stick with it. After the first two or three you’re going to say, “what the frak, this isn’t funny,” but as you get further and further along, the absurdity will grow and you’ll eventually weep openly that you have to wait for the next episode (and there are tons of easter eggs for sharp-eyed sci-fi fans).
Here’s an embed of the first four episodes to get your started (the 4th show is the one where it all starts to come together):

And finally, here’s my previous story about The Phantom Editor and his version of “Attack of the Clones.”
Go, Mike, Go!
