VOTD: George Lucas Cracks Jokes On 'The Daily Show'

With his fondness for plaid and flannel, George Lucas projects a pretty laid-back image, but he's not exactly known for his outrageous sense of humor. If we were going to cast a Daily Show spot making fun of Fox News, Lucas wouldn't be among the first people chosen for the gig. Maybe that's why his appearance on exactly such a sketch is pretty funny. That he's having fun with his own creation (Star Wars, of course, along with American Graffiti) is part of the fun. Watch the George Lucas Daily Show segment below.

Lucas appears about three minutes into this piece, via Comedy Central. I love how the audience doesn't seem to know what to make of Lucas at first.
