First of all, if you love the Internets and you haven't seen @midnight yet, you're missing out on some serious lulz. A few nights a week, Hardwick invites some comedian pals on the show for some Geek-Centric Improv Comedy. Sort of like a British Quiz Show brought to you by Reddit. Or "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" with slightly less dancing, but an equal amount of thick-rimmed glasses and awkward sexual tension.
In a segment called "Star Weird" on Monday's episode, Hardwick's guests had to choose which of two artistic descriptions was an actual deviation on deviantART. YES, MOM, HE SAID DEVIANTART'S ACTUAL NAME ON TV! MUCH WOW! The comedians were the hilarious Rachel Bloom, Kevin Shinick, and Seth Green, whose "Robot Chicken" series has delved deeper into the "Star Wars" franchise than most Sarlacc pits.
Watch the clip:

Let's make art!
Not only are we uber honored by the shout-out, we're confident the deviantART community can create the deviations that were suggested as mere jokes. Let art imitate life! Well, let fan art imitate comedy!
Artists, we want to see your interpretations of @midnight's fake ideas! Pop in your "Star Wars" Blu-ray as inspiration and bring to life these joke deviations suggestions!
- C-3P0 as an oiled-up muscle droid dancing on a Gay Pride float
- A Jedi in a Mexican poncho named "Obi-Juan Ken-riguez"
- Seth Green as a sexy slave girl Princess Leia
Congrats to the featured artists!

Once you've created your Star Wars-inspired masterpiece, link to your deviation below. Twitter users can also tweet their art to the show using @midnight. You never know, maybe you'll be featured next!
We're proud of the artists who made it onto the show, and want to encourage them and others to keep creating and imagining. Laugh now, but you could upload a fabulous oiled-up C-3P0 as he was meant to be seen, and, next thing you know, you're being offered a job at a comic franchise or video game developer. Hey, it's happened before!
