Shit. I'll send you my copy of the same thing for shipping and a blank disc. No entry required. Just don't get mad at me when you find out you wasted a piece of your life watching it.

I've got a copy that only has the Holiday Special no extras of any sort. I wonder if it's better quality than those that come with the Muppet show and stuff.

Also, the one I have has the original commercials intact.

I imagine that most people have it one way or another...just found it odd that a site like davis would be advertising it as a giveaway...seeing as it is black market only...

Holiday Special is fun to have just so you can show it off to friends who have never heard of it. It works best if slip into casual conversation, like "Revenge of the Sith was the best of all 7 Star Wars movies!" and then when they're like "WTF?" you bust out Holiday Special and everyone has a good laugh about it. If you really want to blow their minds though, show them Turkish Star Wars.

I'm guessing if Lucasfilm gets word of this, they'll be paying a little visit to DavisDVD.com with a nice little lawsuit.

Anyone want to speed up the process by notifying Lucasfilm?

Why? Because Lucas isn't making money off it?

It's a movie made by Turkish people that rips off footage from Star Wars (not to mention music from Indiana Jones, Battlestar Galactica, etc.). Most of the stolen footage is used in the opening scene, where our brave Turkish starfighters stand in front of TV screens showing footage of the Battle of Yavin. I'm not kidding, that's really what they did. Also, the Death Star and Alderaan blow up like 3 times each during the unintelligeable introduction, that involves aliens trying to attack Earth but being stopped by Earth's brain shield that's made out of actual brains. The aliens can't penetrate it because they don't have brains, and so they need to capture a human and study it's brain, which is where our heroes come into play when they crash land on the planet of Ancient Egypt, apparently, and are pursued by Turkish Darth Vader's forces. It only gets worse from there.

And I didn't even tell you about the history lesson that tells how the followers of the Koran were persecuted by Turkish Darth Vader, and how they were rescued and taken to an underground sanctuary by Jesus Christ!

Doesn't make any difference, it's still in violation of copyright. Lucasfilm OWNS the rights to the show and has not authorized distribution of it in any form.

But in order to claim ownership, wouldn't they have to first recognize it's existance?
