Recursion shot first!

There is a picture with this post. In this picture (taken from comics101.com and then trimmed a bunch to remove everything else from possible focus) is a man.

The man in this picture is George Lucas.

George Lucas is wearing a t-shirt.

It is a Han Shot First t-shirt.

Is that the sound of the universe opening a tear and sucking itself into a horrible infinite loop? It might be. The rest of the photo, for the record, shows Lucas talking to Harrison Ford who is in Indy garb. Which, I grant you is even funnier in some ways.

Because then, you see, George Lucas is wearing a Han Shot First t-shirt while talking to Han Solo. All right, actually, here is that as well.

Lucas talking to Han Solo while wearing a Han Shot First t-shirt. The recursion is mind-boggling.

  1. So, then, is this the first shot of Lucas talking to Han while wearing a Han Shot First shirt? How many shots at this Han Shot First shot were missed before they shot Han?

    Han Shot First post.

  2. What about George Lucas wearing a Han Shot First t-shirt, talking to Han Solo dressed as Indiana Jones?

  3. Lucas’s t-shirt should read “I ruined Star Wars and all I got was this lousy t-shirt and a billion dollars.”

  4. Here from Digg.com

    Pretty awesome I have to say. I can feel the very fabric of time and space tearing into trillions upon trillions upon trillions of little atoms. Heavy stuff. :)

  5. What’s to get? Geeks think it’s funny that the guy who created Star Wars, thus also having created Han Solo, was wearing a t-shirt referencing Han Solo while talking to the man who played the character Han Solo in the movie.
    It’s an inside joke that many people get. It’s hillarious really.
    It’s like when a guy named ‘George’ was a guest on the Colbert Report for having made a video spoof using Stephen Colbert’s own footage of himself doing lightsaber moves. ‘George’ being George Lucas – the man who created the lightsaber in the first place! Ha!

  6. For those that don’t get it, the manipulation of classic films by their own creators has been a pretty common topic for several years now. This isn’t really geek speak. Well, maybe it’s film geek speak. But c’mon, people take part in your culture! How would you feel if Caddyshack was changed so there were no high explosives or mention of “greasy grimy gopher guts?”

  7. A nerd meets George Lucas and says “oh man I used to love those Star Wars movies” and George Lucas replied “what changed?” and the nerd says “the films did”.

  8. “Lucas talking to Han Solo while wearing a Han Shot First t-shirt.”

    Something inside of my head just **blinked** out of existence when you said that.

  9. that t-shirt graphic is too sharp compared to George’s face (check the lack of beard and hair detail). I smell Photoshop.

  10. This item is only up here because this is San Diego Comic Con convention week(with that very weekend coming up),otherwise this most revealing news(that Geroge Lucas suggestively admits that Han Solo actually did shoot first) is very irrelevant to me.

  11. What a bunch of idiots. This is like MONTH old news. It was on the video at the official Indy site. Dont act like its some big discovery, cuz its been seen, pointed out, and discussed repeatedly for weeks now.

  12. wow….this was at least 3 weeks old…right after indy started shooting in conn…I guess news doesn’t travel fast sometimes in this internet world.

  13. I reckon he should get a T-shirt which reads “I made three more Star Wars movies which weren’t as good and all I got was this lousy t-shirt and a million whiners who can’t get over it.”

  15. this is rediculously old news, what the hell is it with aintitcool.com and the rest of the bloody world. I beleive this is more of a haha I can wear this and STILL do what I want posture by lucas IMHO

  16. I wonder if Scott Kurtz is gonna get pissed by this. I mean, his Han Shot First shirt came out way before this one.

  17. Okee dokee, If han shot first he should be arrested,tried,convicted and sentenced to death by death star, right??
    But since it all happened in holywoops he’ll just check in to rehab and all’s forgiven right?
