Truther mockumentary asks: Was the destruction of the Death Star an inside job?

Parodying 9/11 truther series Loose Change, Graham Putnam creates a compelling argument that the destruction of the first Death Star was an inside job—orchestrated by none other than Darth Vader himself.


The repeated mispronunciations of "Alderaan" aside, this video, titled Luke's Change, is pretty great. It's not the first time that someone has joked that "The Death Star was an Inside Job," but it does a fantastic job of constructing a different narrative from the pieces of a familiar story.

My cousin, who is normally fairly sane and level-headed, is one of these Loose Change people. His whole belief seemed to be based on the fact that the buildings came straight down instead of toppling sideways or something, as far as I can tell. I once wasted an hour of my life trying to explain the physics of very massive structures to him and he just got more and more angry.
