As surely as the sun will rise, so will the Internet produce parodies and machinima versions of the trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, such as this new one made in Grand Theft Auto V.

Darkdark production did a great job of lining up the original trailer’s soundtrack to new footage from GTA V. The sci-fi tech gets a bit of a downgrade as the Millennium Falcon turns into a jet airplane, the speeder  bike is an ATV, and (best of all) the rolling droid just looks like a volleyball.

Some other gaming parodies of the trailer have also emerged since it first dropped on Black Friday, such as this machinima in World of Warcraft and this thorough original animation that mashes it up with Super Smash BrosFor good measure, here it is again in Lego, and in the stereotyped styles of J.J. Abrams, George Lucas, and Wes Anderson.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 18, 2015.
