This portrayal of Luke Skywalker as experienced through the filter of Jimi Hendrix features a distortion-heavy "Star Spangled Banner" played live on an electric violin shaped like a Landspeeder with sparklers for jets. 

The violin was built by Carlos Flores, aka Solrac Artist. This act was originally created for the Star Girls show - the original Star Wars burlesque parody created by LA's Devil's Playground.
