One of the more remarkable things about the Star Wars movies is how the characters are able to fluently speak and understand hundreds of languages across the various star systems. In a cut sketch from his SNL hosting gig this weekend, Charles Barkley played a character who couldn’t understand any of them in a scene from The Mos Eisley 5.
During an exchange with Jabba the Hut, Barkley gets frustrated because he just doesn’t understand what the hell anyone is talking about. From the annoying R2-D2’s beeping to Chewbacca’s growling, Barkley can’t understand a damn thing, and doesn’t get how everyone understands each other.
Barkley is funnier ripping Shaq off the cuff than he is in scripted comedy, but this is good for a laugh.
