Watch Patton Oswalt’s Amazing Eight-Minute Star Wars-Filled Parks and Recreation Filibuster

Patton Oswalt is set to appear on this Thursday's Parks and Recreation as a Pawnee citizen who attempts to filibuster a city council vote. The show's producers asked him to improvise a speech about whatever he wanted. The result is a remarkable, nearly nine-minute, uninterrupted, improvised pitch for the plot for the seventh Star Wars movie. To be fair, the story goes all over the place — incorporating most Marvel characters — however, it's brilliant nonetheless. Seriously, J.J. Abrams, if you're reading this, watch this video, if only for the idea of Chewbacca with a robot spider body.
