Star Wars Boy
If you love Star Wars, you’ve probably dreamt of being a Jedi. If you’re a kid who loves the movies, you’ve probably pretended to be Anakin or Luke or Rey. Ghyslain Raza was only 14 years old when he recorded himself pretending to be a Jedi with a stick in place of a lightsabre. It was 2002 so the prequel trilogy was in the middle of being produced. In 2003, the video he made of himself was uploaded to the web and went viral. The embarrassment to “Star Wars Boy” and the harassment from classmates meant that he had to enter therapy.
