What, because he's got a freaking picture on the internet? Yeah, that's a good reason. He doesn't deserve anything.:mad:

He deserves to be made fun of as much as he does just for being a mess. And that's the only thing he deserves! He didn't do crap other than look like a spaz and let someone else get their hands on the video. If anything the people who added his light saber effects should get a job for ILM! :D

agreed, plus this kid deserves nothing it's like that simpsons episode where springfield thinks a boy named timmy o'tool is stuck down a well and homer calls him a hero. he did nothing heroic. this kid did a horrible job as a saberist anyways. the kid deserves nothing. I mean, wow so he accidentally filmed himself pretending to be darth maul. so what. I'm not gonna give him money or anything just because he embarrased himself. Noone gives me money when I embarrass myself. Give me one logical reason to pay him money and sign for him to be in Episode 3 and I'll do it. For all I care this kid can get a major psychological disorder, I still won't give him money. I never actually laughed at the video, I was mostly just confused of why someone would waste bandwidth hosting that stupid video.

I was watching the news and it said he had to finish the school year in a psychiatric ward because he was so devastated about how many people in the world have seen him doing this.

I think he was mentaly damaged in the first place making the film for the ppl to put up. I mean this kid has WAY to much time on his hands. I think this kid needs to get a life, take a breath of fresh air and kick the ball around a bit. If all he does all day is dream about being on starwars while listining to ppl make fun of him all day and thats the way he wantsto live than I can't simpathize too much. I don't think ppl should be making fun of him but I also think this kid neds to grow up. He isin high school and he is dancing around with a lightsaber......... I mean whats done in the movies is cool but he was all over the place................

And why shouldnt he be in SW EP3? Cause he didn't do anything to deserve it? Ridiculed and mocked to the point of near insanity isn't enough?! Are you people derranged? You all got a laugh out of it at one point, but he dosen't deserve it? Hell, I figure your all just mad cuz he's gonna be in the background doing nothing while your gonna be sittin in the theater, remembering him when it was funny, and remembering that it was people who did laugh who forced him into therapy.

I laughed too, but I'm not saying that I was right. It was funny, now it isn't. Now I atleast feel bad. Not because I directly put the kid in therapy, but because people laughing did.

And did nobody read where it said 'part of a school project'? Or 'the 4 kids stole the tape'? Of course he didn't put that up willingly? Would any of you?

No, he shouldn't be in episode III. He didn't do anything.

No, I didn't laugh, what's funny about it? Just some kid with a broom. ha. ha. ha I'm gonna die from the laughter.

Seriously, it's not funny, he has no skills that should put him in ep III... WHY would he be in episode three? Just because some people on the internet think he's funny? Wow.

And about him going insane or whatever from being embarresed... ok, if you are doing something that is embarressing, and you don't want other people to see it, DO NOT make a video of yourself doing it. What's so hard about that?

The video of Ghyslain, a portly 15-year-old pretending he is wielding a double-bladed light sabre,

This kid pisses me off. If I knew he lived, I'd go over there and break that stupid IPod whatever. the kid deserves ****. We'll all been embarrassed. I wouldn't mind being embarrased like that. It would show I'm a true Star Wars Fan .I'd love for peopel to edit videos, and make me have a double bladed lightsaber. Screw this kid. I hope he gets no money form th people who pity him, and I hope he never ever gets a job in a movie.

Hmm, saying you don't feel sorry for the kid is like you don't feel sorry for handicaps. Did this kid plan on the video being put on the internet and then need phsychiatric care? Did [insert anyone here] plan on breaking an arm so that he couldn't use a computer anyomore? I feel sorry for the kid, and if you think it's stupid that he taped himself, tell that to thousands of other kids who have done that, including me. He might not deserve to be in Episode 3, but he doesn't derserve the ridicule that some of you are talking.

Man he didnt want people to see this video. His parents filed a lawsuit against the 4 kids (ok their parents) that put the video online.

He had to quit highschool and get help from a psychiatrist...i dont think he wanted all that crap to happen.

People should give it a rest, and there's no chance in hell he'll be appearing in a movie! :p (he already did!!).

That is the most idiotic response I've ever heard.
1) he didn't make it to be put on the internet
2) where do you get off assuming how he lives his life

If you knew anything about the story, you'd know he had some free time in the schools production area and was just goofing off and his "friends" took the video and whored it out over the net.

1. I know that, I understood that from the start (before I posted) I was Just trying to say that I though IMHO that it was weird. I mean If your going to film yourself doing something for a quote "stupid project for school" than are u going to dance around like a fool or try doing something a bit more dramatic like in the actual movies?......... Thats what I though;)

2. That was just my opinion and last time I check I was entitled one:)

I do know "anything" about the story I mean, I wouldn't have posted if I didn't know wtf was going on:rolleyes: I knew he didn't make the film with the intintion of having it put on the web for all to see. I feel sory for the kid but I still think the whole thing about being in EP3 and what he did that got put online was stupid.

I agree completly.

Oh and Bawbag your intitled to an opinion but if its a stupid one that makes no sense then your just putting yourself out on a line i mean he posted a link to a news report on it and tells you that it was a school project its not like he planned on dancing around for 2 mins and put it on the internet. For all you to lazy to read the actual news report here it is in a nutshell:

He made the tape for school
Kids found it
Kids put it on the internet
He found out it was on the internet
ended up almost going crazy
Parents sue 4 other kids

at least read that before you post.

Well, he got an iPod, I would say they are even

Seriously, it sucks to be on the butt end of a joke. I know I laughed at it, and some (not all) of the remixes were really good and funny. But like all jokes, they are going to die. Especially fades on the internet. Like the dancing baby. Its done and over with now too. Ironically, they had a remix with the SW Kid and the dancing baby. Yuck.

As far as desevering a role in Ep 3. Nah. He does not need that, and that is still doing nothing but making fun of him more. The only thing this kid deserves is a little respect from people for being himself, even if most people think that he is really f**king weird.

Yeh, but they were making fun of him. :p

OK. I agree with Jedi220. I say, just everyone forget about it, kids say they are sorry, maybe publicly (don't sue the parent's. Its not their fault their kids made a joke. i don't think they knew every person on the internert would see it) but don't let the kid be in the movie. Like someone said in the toher thread. They aren't gonna be thinking. "Oh, theres that cool kid!" They are gonna be like "AHAHAH! Theres that fat Star Wars Kid. Look at him dance around!" Besides, he still doesn't deserve it.

Mr.Joshua
07-25-2003, 03:52 PM
Wrong, they probably wouldn't even recognize him or see his face. I mean how often when you're watching a movie are you paying close attention to the people in the background? How often do you sit with your nose up to the screen looking at each background extra trying to determine if it's one person or the other?

Perfect example is in Attack of the Clones. Anthony Daniels (C3PO) and Jar Jar Binks actor (can't think of his name off the top of my head) were both out of costume playing normal humans in the bar scene when Anakin is walking through looking for Zam Wessel. How many of you knew they were in that scene without reading about it? Or that the chubby Twilek in that same scene is George Lucas's daughter? I mean without reading exactly where and when and in what costume someone is, you're not even going to be paying enough attention to point him out.

So what would having him be a background extra hurt? Nothing. It wouldn't hurt anything but your own ego's.

07-25-2003, 03:55 PM
okay guys,

i bet everybody at least once in there lives had fun playing around with a lightsaber when you were a kid. This young guy just happened to film it (so he can see himself, he was curious okay?)

but he did the mistake of putting it on the school's camera which was taking by 4 kids who do nothing but trouble. Kids can be the most cruel people, remember?

So then people were teasing him soo much. made unflatering remarks about his looks and etc. And this is EVERYWHERE HE GOES! Of course the kid developped some problems and needed help.

I'm happy his parents got fed up and are sueing the kids who started this mess and I'm happy people are supporting this kid.

Those who think this kid is an idiot should re-evaluate thier morals.

Because, he didn't do anything to deserve it. I mean, there are tons of people who got embarrased on the internet. They didn't get a chance to be in a Star Wars movie. All this kid did was be stupid enoguh to tape himself, being fat and dancing around like an idiot. :rolleyes:

I'd like to point out that I'm all for letting this one die a death now... but:

Sueing the kids 'responsible' is just ridiculous. Can we be expected to belive that this 'video incident' was the first time anyone made fun of the kid? I doubt it somehow. I'd wager a pretty penny that the kid's had a lifetime of poking, teasing and name-calling. Okay, so the video was the 'straw that broke the camels back', but sueing the parents of the kids concerned is just taking the ****.

Obviously Ghyslain wasn't able to to this, but most people would try to ride it off with facts like "Yeah it's me, so what? I'm now more famous than you'll ever be ;)". Bringing legal action into it just seems like attention seeking.

Think about it logically: The last I heard, the online collection for Ghyslain had raised $3000. And yet he still can't cope with the situation, and still needs couselling. What purpose is sueing anyone going to serve? Throwing more money into the equation isn't going to help. (unless there's like a $10,000 cut-off point where things are suddenly better :rolleyes: )
Legal action is going to drag this story out and add to Ghyslain's unhappiness. He'll not be remembered as "the kid who got embarrased on the internet", he's going to be "the kid who got embarrased on the internet and threw a hissy fit over it"

An offer from Lucasfilm, should it occur, would seem patronising. An acceptence from Ghyslain would look like attention-seeking.

I honestly wish him all the best, but dragging this out in court won't help anyone.

Being verbally made fun of on a message board is totally different then having a video that you made of yourself for yourself plastered all over it and edited in 30+ different ways. There's a difference being made fun of in a small internet community, but this kid has been made fun of by MILLIONS of people, not 5, not 10. MILLIONS. He's been talked about in tons of newspapers and has even been discussed on television now. NOT ANY OF IT HAS BEEN RESPECTFUL towards him.

You know how many people are in star wars movies that "don't deserve" to be in it? Nearly every extra, hell some of the main actors, don't "deserve" to be in it. That argument is so flawed and I can't believe why any of you are even stating it except for personal ego's that would get hurt by letting some kid that's been publicly humiliated world wide be in the background of some scene in Episode 3 as an extra. You really have no empathy if you think he doesn't deserve it, none what so ever.

IMHO, you've got a lot of nerve, fella.

Empathy? We have empathy. Leave the kid alone. He's obviously upset, and has even gone off the deep end because of what a few people did. Life can suck, and so can people. You need to let him get on with his life and try to forget about it. It's people like you that are making the situation worse by creating threads like this.

That's my 2 cents.

So let's get this straight Mr.Joshua. You think because he has been humiliated he should be in Ep3. Don't make me laugh.

How many other people "deserve" to be in Ep3 in front of this guy. Take me for example. I've been a Star Wars fan since ANH. I have played with the toys as a kid and followed Star Wars religiously for all these years. I bought the games, the comics, the toys and lord knows what other merchandise. Do I "deserve" to be in Ep3 as an extra in front of this guy? Hell yes I do. How many other dedicated fans like me "deserve" to be in Ep3 in front of this guy. Thousands.

Do I feel sorry for him? Yes I do (read my first post). Do I think he should be an extra in Ep3 because of his humiliation? No I don't.

You obviously didn't comprehend my post. I said NO ONE DESERVES to be in Star Wars, but if anyone does it's him. So what if you've been a star wars fan since ANH, so have I. I've had all the old toys, I have nearly every book, and I have the original trilogy as well as both sets of special editions and both dvds. But I'm not saying I deserve to be in it more than him am I? The fact is you weren't humiliated in front of MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. I can't understand how you all can't comprehend how many people that is. You act like it's some little thing that happened to him. I pray none of you get caught doing something and become the laughing stock of the whole internet.

FYI: No one would know what part he got, and I'd be damn jealous if he got in, wouldn't make fun of him one bit. It's that thinking that got this poor kid screwed in the head.
