Pianist D Wave mashed up two seemingly mismatched tunes, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee and John Williams’ Imperial March from Star Wars into a single cohesive track. There’s a hint of ragtime jazz in there for good measure too.

BB-8 vs. Indiana Jones

While the sound effects are all wrong, we got a good chuckle from Reid Southen’s doctoring of this scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, replacing the giant boulder with another round, rolly object. Also, he made this a year ago, so he had no idea what BB-8 sounded like yet.
