Target has produced some Star Wars bedding as of late, some of which aspires to be similar to Pottery Barn Kids’ line of Star Wars bedding without the Pottery Barn Kids prices.
At first blush, a handsome beige Rebel-themed bedding set seems to focus on X-Wings and Falcons. But this guy looked carefully and noticed there are…gasp…prequel vehicles hidden in the design. It’s hilarious to see this author react like Rumpelstiltskin after his name is discovered to see “holy trilogy” sheets tainted with prequelness. For a guy whose position on the prequels is that “it looked cool but I didn’t like the story,” he sure seems to know quite a bit even if he mistakenly says the Jedi starfighter was from TPM.
Maybe the sheet designer knows nothing about Star Wars and just pulled all kinds of vehicle line art to put on the sheets without any regard to where those vehicles appeared.
Or is there another explanation? Could there be a sheet designer out there who’s as annoyed with the hateboys and post-ROTS prequel amnesia as we are? I can imagine the sheet designer chuckling to himself as he surreptitiously sneaks in prequel vehicles, figuring none would be the wiser. In that case, I tip my hat to his genius. Perhaps if you fold the sheets the right way, there’s a big picture of Jar Jar sticking out his tongue.
