So a friend from university just posed a question on his facebook wall asking of our earliest memes which got me thinking. Then I recalled this little gem by a Canadian high schooler who recorded this video in his school studio over footage of the high school's basketball game. He left the tape at the school, which was eventually found by his fellow classmates who uploaded the video to the Internet. The video has been viewed approximately 1 billion times.
The student eventually sued his schoolmates for $250,00 and they settle the matter out of court.
Star Wars kid remains one of the most viewed video on the Internet and gives Americans yet one more reason to redicule their friendly cousins north of the boarder.
