Friday goofiness: George Lucas feels the Force

I can't stop watching this. The Toyota Celebrity race in Long Beach is always a total clown fest, but I just love this 2007 clip of George Lucas making the most overzealous dive-bomb passing maneuver more like something a 15 year old Alex Zanardi wannabe would try on his Playstation. Naturally, the result: Game Over. The secondary head-on crumple is of course the icing on the cake.

Enjoy the videos! The second clip shows the in-car view. The third clip shows George projecting his unflappable cool and calm before the race. "I'm just here for the fun. I'm not tryin' to win. I just want to have a good time." Ahh, the Red Mist can cloud even the best laid plans, eh George?
