“This Is The Falcon” Parodies Gambino’s “This is America” Hit With Star Wars Flair
How It Should Have Ended YouTube channel is getting into the song parody business, and their first creation just may be one of the greatest song parodies to ever grace the Internet. This is The Falcon, was first teased in the channel’s alternate ending bit for Solo: A Star Wars Story, so I’m glad they decided to give it a full standalone treatment, because it’s an Internet web gem to say the least.
The team took Childish Gambino’s This is America single, and remade it as an anthem for Lando’s Millennium Falcon ship. In the parody song, the lyrics are dedicated to Lando and his Falcon, and how Han wants to take it, as well as its many iconic feats, such as the shortened Kessel Run Han made with it. The lyrics just go perfectly with the catchy beat, and they all fit within the scope of the Star Wars universe, as well as with how we know Han and Lando treat each other.
Make sure to get the tune stuck in your head for the rest of the day by giving it a listen above. There are even subtitles, so you can sing-a-long if you so choose to.
