Donny And Marie Do 'Star Wars'

A friend of mine sent me this link today and dared me to watch all 10 minutes. For those too young to remember, Donny and Marie Osmond had a musical variety show in the '70s called, appropriately enough, The Donny And Marie Show (she was "a little bit country" and he was "a little bit rock 'n' roll"). I was in elementary school at the time and actually watched it pretty regularly. But I don't remember this incredible moment:

Donny and Marie lead an all-star cast in this number. Kris Kristofferson plays a too-cool-for-school Han Solo, while the comedian Redd Foxx plays Obi-Wan Kenobi and Paul Lynde is an Admiral with the Empire. There are also dancing Storm Troopers. Wow. I can't take my eyes off it.
