Why would anyone buy a Star Wars Kinect other than to "Ride Solo" as Han Solo? And if that someone is actor Harrison Ford then you can guess he would probably want to reprise the role in some capacity. Sort of. Actually, not really.
Topless Robot recently stumbled onto gameplay footage of Star Wars Kinect where you can dance to a song inspired by Jason Derulo's "Ridin' Solo". However, this footage is a little bit different. The video shows actor Harrison Ford playing the game as Han Solo, who is dancing up a storm. Check it out below.
Okay, so if you've ever played a Kinect game then you know that this is obviously a fake video. Still, who wouldn't want to watch a video of Harrison Ford playing himself on Star Wars Kinect? I mean, come on. That's kind of awesome. Although we would all like to watch Harrison Ford playing as Han Solo, the footage spliced to create the video is actually from when Naughty Dog invited the actor to play Uncharted 3 for the first time.
The game developer asked Ford last fall to play the game not only for promotional purposes, but to see what it was like for the actor to play as a character who was inspired by his Indiana Jones. From the looks of it, the overall experience may have turned Ford into a gamer -- he definitely appears to be having a great time playing the game.
Sometimes the internet gives you a real gem, and all you can say is "thank you." What do you think of the parody video? Kinect Star Wars hits stores today, April 3rd, 2012.
