The Backstroke of the West

The Backstroke of the West is not a movie in its own right, but rather a weird bootleg of Revenge of the Sith from Hong Kong.
The original DVD they made contained Chinese subtitles apparently made from transcribed dialog, and English subtitles made by translating that back into English.
The result was, well:

Even the title “Backstroke of the West” was an attempt to trans;ate “Revenge of the Sith.”
Somebody was actually dedicated enough to dub the subtitles. It’s pretty hilarious, though I don’t like of the voice they picked for Yoda. There are clips from the dub available online, but I don’t think the original sub is up any more.
It has its own little following, so, do we have any Backstroke fans here?
