stand up to cancer

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.

Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

It’s another Star Wars Stands Up 2 Cancer video featuring Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Emma Stone, Aziz Ansari, Jaime King, Zach Galifinakis, Ken Jeong, and Samuel L. Jackson. This one goes in a slightly more serious direction as the stars talk about how cancer has affected them. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of dorky lightsaber gags.

We touched on this briefly in Nerdy Bits earlier today, but since then Stand Up To Cancer and Lucasfilm have released a video celebrating their new collaboration. In it some Star Wars fans, who also happen to be celebrities, reenact famous scenes from the original trilogy to raise awareness for the new charitable venture.

Aziz Ansari, Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Ed Helms, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Jamie King and Samuel L. Jackson all take part is this amusing video. I really wanted this to be outstanding and hilarious, but it just didn’t quite deliver, it’s worth a watch though. Whether it’s funny or not doesn’t really matter , it’s to support the cancer-stopping powers of the organization Stand Up To Cancer. Or at least their possibly, hopefully we’ll one day cure cancer powers.

The t-shirts shown in the vid are available for purchases over at their website,  www.standup2cancer.org/usetheforce. But in addition to sweet tees you can also bid on some swanky stuff, like a “one-of-a-kind Star Wars edition 2012 Volkswagen Passat and dinner with filmmakers including George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, John Lasseter, Chris Columbus and Phillip Kaufman.” Yes, dinner with George Lucas. Maybe you can mention what you thought about the Blu-rays….err, maybe you shouldn’t mention that. To bid on the auction items check out their eBay page.
