Variety reports: “YouTube restored Bad Lip Reading’s viral parody of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Friday morning — more than 16 hours after pulling the video down because of an apparently fake copyright-takedown claim. The video, a six-minute spoof of Disney/Lucasfilm’s ‘Force Awakens’ blockbuster, features Mark Hamill doing a spot-on voiceover impression of co-star Harrison Ford.
