Patton Oswalt Delivers the Ultimate Star Wars Filibuster

Please stop what you are doing and watch, in slack-jawed amazement and delight, as Patton Oswalt filibusters a Pawnee City Council vote with his fevered ideas for Star Wars: Episode VII in this very extended outtake from tomorrow night’s Parks and Recreation double bill. What follows is eight minutes of improvisational wizardry that ends only when Oswalt nearly dies of dry mouth, having heroically reached the extreme limits of nerd-endurance by liquefying the minds of Star Wars purists with the taboo-obliterating suggestion of a grand merger with the Marvel universe.

[Disclosure: The Grantland, Star Wars, and Avengers franchises are all owned by Disney. NBC is now owned by Patton Oswalt, who will summarily install Chewbacca’s severed head as president of programming, doubling the network’s ratings overnight.]
