Music parody duo Palette-Swap Ninja—a.k.a. singer/guitarist Dan Amrich and keyboard/drum machinist Jude Kelley—have released what can only be described as a tour de force…be with you.

Having spent the last five years putting it together, the duo has finally released Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans—a song-for-song Star Wars: A New Hope parody of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Per Amrich on the duo’s website, “Once we settled on merging A New Hope with Sgt. Pepper’s, we completely committed ourselves to turning these two sacred cows into the ultimate double cheeseburger.”
