Thank god for Lego. Without it, my attempts these days to do the most basic of DIY would cause the whole house to come crashing down. It is – both literally and metaphorically – the building block of childhood. And it’s still fun, especially when you see it being put to new uses. Like a great cover of a legendary song, this clip only adds to the original sketch. British comedian Eddie Izzard is waxing lyrical about Darth Vadar, and someone with a lot of time on their hands has ‘acted’ it out. Simple, and hilarious.
