Brilliant Ocean's Eleven & Star Wars Mashup

AckbarsEleven.jpg

We're not one to judge people entirely by their looks, but it's safe to say that Admiral Ackbar and George Clooney were probably at different ends of the queue when God was dishing out handsomeness.

That hasn't prevented the two from being combined in this fantastic mashup video by Synaptic Studios, melding Ocean's Eleven and Star Wars: Episode VI which features a smooth-talking Ackbar guiding his fellow intergalactic heroes through a fiendishly difficult raid on a Las Vegas casino.



With the planned Star Wars spin-off film Rogue One apparently being a "sci-fi take on a heist movie", it seems they might not need to bother, given how perfectly this has been edited. Enjoy below (and skip to 1:30 for the action to begin).
