Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.

The Doctor Who parody, Inspector Spacetime that appeared on Community this passed week, yeah, it already has a fast-growing fanbase. A fanbase surrounding a fake show. These are the things the internet was made for. To brush up on our new favorite meme check out io9.

Are These The Droids You’re Looking To Wear?

droid shoes

Living in Japan has helped me see some of the weirdest merchandise that ranges from knives to cell phone covers (and to be honest, I’ve seen some things that my eyes probably shouldn’t have seen). It seems that Adidas wants to take some of the craziness in a form of show by basing it on one of nerd culture’s known franchise.

What you see above is Adidas’ Star Wars Top Ten Low Droid Shoes and like it’s shown above, it’s a pair of sneakers that pays tribute to both C-3po and R2-D2. The shoes will set you back $110.00.

While it may seem cool in theory, c’mon, will wearing a half gold-half white shoes raise your nerd cred? Unless you have a track suit that is half gold-half white, I don’t think anyone would wear these out in public. What do y’all think? Am I not nerd enough to wear this and you’re willing to wear them or are you with me on not wearing these?

Adidas To Release A Wookie Jacket

“I did it all for the Wookie!” Yeah!! A Wookie pelt for the masses! This is what happens when a bounty hunter finds and skins the infamous smuggler Chewbacca. I will admit that Adidas and Star Wars go together like gravy on top of a sundae. But come on, who really cares when it comes to ANYTHING Star Wars and getting the word out to the masses that even the jocks at Adidas Brand love the Holy Trilogy and the Unholy Triumvirate (1 thru 3). Which is to say that Star Wars can’t be discriminated against in the world of film or sports. Who would have ever guessed?

The Force Is with This Shoe Commercial

Don't kill me for using this image, George Lucas.

In November, we brought you news that adidas and Star Wars were teaming up for a line of Force-inspired clothing and shoes. Today, you can experience the power of the dark side. Um, I mean the commercial.

adidas (I HATE lowercasing adidas. It feels so wrong.) is scheduled to launch its adidas Originals Star Wars line this spring, and though we’ve already seen images of the sneakers and apparel, I think this is the first time we’ve gotten a commercial.

The video is filled with cameos galore, from Daft Punk to David Beckham. Why? They apparently “live in the neighborhood,” where “originality comes to life as artists, athletes, and celebs celebrate their style.” I wish I could be the girl who got paid to write that.

From the Star Wars site:

The most iconic moments and beloved figures from the Star Wars saga are translated to the streets, telling their creative story across a forceful collection of adidas Originals footwear and apparel.

Celebrate this powerful alliance to the beat of a new and improved remix of the Imperial March, as Vader and the stormtroopers land on our street corner greeted by Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Calle 13, DJ Neil Armstrong and Daft Punk representing their originality. No matter which side of the Force you’re on, believe the hype, this year is going to be massive.

Weird, no? Still, the commercial is entertaining, if not unsettling. There’s even a point where the swing of a baseball bat sounds like a lightsaber — which I’ve always thought was appropriate. Take a look:

Because Stormtroopers Need Shoes, Too

I’ve always been a low-end shoe kind of girl. I couldn’t tell you why Louboutins have that red sole; I’m too busy scouting Payless for my buy-one, get-one-half-off deal. But if I were a boy, and I had big feet, and I cared about brands, and I could actually wear tennis shoes to work, you bet your sweet ass I’d check these out next year:

Cinematical reports that adidas will be launching a whole line of Star Wars-themed shoes and clothing next spring. Only a few photos have been released, but in addition to the Stormtrooper shoes, there also will be Darth Vader, Yoda and Skywalker varieties available. Is that it? “No. There is another…”

Seriously. SERIOUSLY! Even though I love me some Star Wars, there’s no way in hell I’d put shoes that could be mistaken for a 1989 TrapperKeeper on my feet.
