WATCH: These Classic Hollywood Movies Get A Yiddish Makeover

Who knew Darth Vader had such an impressive grasp of the Yiddish language?

I mean, not really, but the folks over at Yidlife Crisis, a Yiddish comedy web series, have done a truly solid job of dubbing over the “Luke, I am your father” line.

The team released a montage of classic movie moments this week — each with a Yiddish twist.

Watch below, and prepare to never see “The Princess Bride,” “E.T.,” and “Good Morning Vietman!,” the same way ever again.
