George Lucas revolutionized visual effects with the original Star Wars and the creation of Industrial Light & Magic, but there’s one thing he doesn’t get…YouTube cat videos. Apparently the concept of people watching silly videos from their computers is something George just doesn’t get.
The Bearded Trio, a great fansite for those who love Spielberg, Lucas, and John Williams, has coverage of Lucas’ appearance at the Sundance Film Festival and includes this funny bit about YouTube:
â€œI would never guess people would watch cats do stupid things all day long,â€ said Lucas.
I’m sure if Lucas came up with the idea first he would’ve made a dumb cat video with state of the art CG effects and it’d have the most views of anything on YouTube.
