Abstract | Full Text

The paper aims to discuss products from fan culture through the case study of “The Star Wars that I used to know”, a music video parody from Gotye’s hit “Somebody that I used to know”. The fan films’ logic enunciated in the video puts into question the circulation of music and fan cultures on the internet, the boundaries between production and consumption of cultural goods, and the connections between music and movie fandoms.
