Watch Neko Case Star As Princess Leia and Mr. Spock in ‘These Aren’t the Droids’ Video

Neko Case shows off her nerdy side by playing some iconic sci-fi characters in her new video with singer-songwriter pal Kelly Hogan, ‘These Aren’t the Droids.’

Playing double duty in the video, Case stars as Mr. Spock with a Princess Leia hairdo while Hogan portrays everybody’s favorite seven-foot furball Chewbacca. The musicians poke fun at fanboy culture by dropping in dozens of references to just about every sci-fi and comic-book hero you can think of.

‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Office’ actress Ellie Kemper also shows up as a woman who’s dating a neglectful stormtrooper. We don’t want to spoil anything, but let’s just say things end happily for Kemper and the Wookiee by the time the video is over.

‘These Aren’t the Droids’ comes from a new comedy-music compilation called ’2776: A Millennium of American Asskickery,’ which benefits OneKid OneWorld. The album also features contributions from Patton Oswalt, Yo La Tengo, Ed Helms, Andrew W.K., Ira Glass, Aimee Mann, Reggie Watts, Will Forte, Margaret Cho and others.

Here’s another nerdy video stuffed with some artists we love:
