A lot of the coverage of Tupac Shakur's virtual return to the stage at Coachella mentioned the similarity between the hologram-style technology used to create his performance and the holographic communication used in the Star Wars movies. Now Sethward Productions has taken the comparison to its logical conclusion in a video called 'R2-D2's Other Message'.
It's a pretty seamless blend of West Coast hip hop and a galaxy far, far away. Check it out below:
In other Tupac holo-news, the virtual version of the rapper has his own Twitter account. You can follow the exploits of the imaginary artist, who describes himself in simple terms - "I rap and I'm a hologram" - @HologramTupac. Meanwhile, Coachella's official video of the virtual performance is no longer on their YouTube channel. You can still catch the hologram in action here, for now.
