Did you know the Jawa’s like Van Halen? Neither did I. And yet, this stop-motion animation provides undeniable proof of the galactic popularity of EVH. The beauty of scifi, as I’ve said, is how it lets us leverage our weaknesses into strengths. The creator himself candidly pointed out: “A Jawa Plays Eruption: A Tribute to Edward Van Halen is exactly that! This was an extremely FUN way to pay respects to a musical Legend and to also challenge myself to recreate Eddie’s amazing solo, frame by frame via stop motion animation. Is it perfect? Of course not, that’s impossible and nothing ever is :-)”
Now, kick back and watch a Jawa shred on Eddie Van Halen’s eponymous work, ‘Eruption.’
Hope you enjoyed ‘Jawa Van Halen, ‘ and if you like Sci-Friday, you can go down the rabbit hole of every other Sci-Friday I’ve published in the past couple years. Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!
