All your favorite comedians made a video to make fun of “Star Wars,” fight cancer

I bet if you work for non-profit that works on curing chronic and terrible diseases, it's really easy to get talent. For example, if I was like, "Hey, I want to make a video where a ton of funny famous people hang out and make fun of Star Wars by sort of pretending they're characters in the movies" I'd probably get shot down.

But, if I was like, "Let's make that video, and then at the end, throw on a kind of nonsensical link to curing cancer," apparently it would be easy. I wouldn't have to come up with a nuanced and hilarious premise or write really funny jokes. Hell, probably I wouldn't even have to pay anyone. As is evidenced by this video, starring Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Samuel L. Jackson, Ken Jeong, Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari and just about everyone else in Hollywood

I'm not saying that it's not a good thing — celebrities should donate their star power to help raise money for good causes — but the funny-potential of this group of people is not getting exploited to the fullest here. However, Emma Stone is adorable, and making fun of Star Wars is inherently great. And it's Friday. So, enjoy:
