A Music Video About a Deserted Imperial Stormtrooper Who Finds Love on a Strange Planet

Reykjavik, Iceland band Bara Heiða has created a cute Star Wars themed music video for their song “Stormtrooper.” The video follows an Imperial Stormtrooper, played by Tómas Árnason (TK-22304) of the 501st Legion Icelandic Outpost, who is left behind on a strange planet and finds love. Bara Heiða’s track is available to purchase from Bandcamp.

The background story of the lyrics is that of a Stormtrooper getting deserted on an unknown planet. There he meets a woman and they fall in love. Later, he has to return to battle and she is left behind, with their child.

The song is a metaphor for two people who are fundamentally different. One being idealistic and of the sky while the other is practical and of the land and how they can only be together for a short while, before drifting apart.
