With all the potential of the Internet, from YouTube to Google Video to all the things in between, who needs television? With that in mind, we present CB Tube, a weekly random selection of whatever appeals to us online. We select, you watch, just like real TV, but we make no promises about entertainment valueÖ just like real TV.
This week is an oldie, but a goody. Kevin Smithís famous Clerks sit around and bitch all day about customers, life, and anything else that comes up, gratuitously mixed with Star Wars and other movie references, of course. So what happens if those clerks are actually Stormtroopers in the Star Wars universe? Thatís what you get with Trooper Clerks, an animated short by Jeff Allen that pokes fun at both the creations of Smith and Lucas.
This one has been around for quite a while but every time I come across it again it makes me laugh and I almost always find someone who hasnít seen it in my ever-changing circle of friends. If you like the first part, click here for the second half of the storyline, which I had never seen (and, frankly, isnít quite as good as the first half).
