Gotta Love the Star Wars Beauty Pageant Contestant!

I know this has been making the rounds today, but I had to post it as well. It’s some local beauty pageant from the 80s where the talent of one Miss Stacey Hedger has to be seen to be believed. She plays the trumpet and “acts out” Star Wars — all in one presentation! Not only is she completely off key, but her cool dance moves to the Disco version of Star Wars really takes the act to a whole new level. I wonder how long it will take the internet community to find Miss Stacey, the star of this viral video.

The sad twist? I think I had this Star Wars record. I was all into Star Wars when it came out (I was 9) and saw this LP (look it up) in the bargain bin at Woolworths (look that up, too.) I got it home and soon realized why it was in the bargain bin – it was all redone recordings from some crappy unknown studio orchestra group – not the real recording from the movie. I was had. And, I had spent a nice chunk of my saved-up generous allowance of 50 cents a week on that peice of crap record.
