WHO IS STAR WARS KID?
If you haven't seen the original Star Wars Kid video before, then watch it now and meet Star Wars Kid!
Why did we put him in one of our Mess.be title banners? Well, SWK happens to be a damn cool 15-year old tenth grader from Quebec!
"Originally recorded onto an 8mm tape on November 4,
2002 in the school's studio, the video was never meant to be seen by anyone.
After Ghyslain returned the borrowed videotape to his friend, the video
sat in a basement for months. On April 19, 2003, Ghyslain's friend stumbled
on the tape's secret contents and immediately shared it with friends. They thought
it would be a funny prank to encode the video and upload it to Kazaa.
It only took two weeks for the video to spread around the world. Raven Software's Bryan Dube added the Star Wars effects on April 24, a mere five days after it originally appeared to the Internet. A week later, both videos were linked on every major gaming- and technology-related website, forum, and chat room online."

Oh, and Ghyslain is also a rich bast*rd because one of his fansites set up a fund raise which left the Star Wars Kid with over $4000 to spend on hard & software! It pays of to be an Internet sensation.
