Which is Nerdier: Star Wars or Star Trek?

Which is Nerdier: Star Wars or Star Trek?

I grew up on both Star Wars and Star Trek. Both franchises are near and dear to my heart. So this College Humor video not only caused a major laughing fit the first time I saw it, but shatters my cool exterior every time I watch it. Most recently I shared it with some friends as we discussed Riker’s apparent inability to walk and stand like a normal person. (Seriously, Riker raises a leg should be in every Star Trek: The Next Generation drinking game.)

The actors were spot on in this video and please don’t ask me to pick a favourite but be warned that Darth Vader gets a wee bit salty. I watched “Which is Nerdier: Star Wars or Star Trek?” a few times to catch all the jokes in the foreground and background. Laugh against your will with me; and, as the video’s official YouTube description says, “May the force help you live long and prosper.”
