Another "worship" spectacle that spoofs itself:
So let's take an inventory of what's going on here... We've got a "church service" that looks like a drive-in movie (with real people in real cars); a strange dance tribute to Michael Jackson, PSY, Beyonce and... Star Wars; and an opening skit with two people portraying Chewbacca and Princess Leia. What were these people thinking??
- Maybe Church by the Glades was trying to visibly demonstrate the total depravity of all human beings?
- Maybe somebody thought that Stormtrooper costumes would create visual and aesthetic unity for the three otherwise unrelated songs (Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Gangnam Style, Single Ladies-Put a Ring On It)?
- Maybe they took this idea from Britain's Got Talent?
- Or, maybe they were just trying to maintain their top position in The Museum of Idolatry?
