STAR TREK vs. STAR WARS video by 20-year-old amateur

I wish I had special effects skillz like these guys. The video was made by a 20-year-old named Bill Parker in his hometown of Warrenville, Illinois and picked up as a story by NBC Chicago. My favorite part of the story: he scared his mom. Mothers never cease to be amazed by special effects.

Parker's effects looked so real his mom worried he blew up parts of town.

"I was slightly concerned that the possibly there was some actual fire involvement in the making of the video," Julie Parker said. "I was worried about insurance liability and lawyer fees."

Parker assured his mom he created the cell tower and public works garage wall explosions.

Though I don't think Star Wars got much of a shot here, the falling letters are creative. What do you guys think?
