Try explaining midichlorians to someone unfamiliar with the Star Wars films and it may come off sounding like a sexually transmitted disease.
Building upon that logic, the folks who produce Dragon*Con TV decided to make an interstellar PSA for Jedi who want to live a normal life despite their “condition.” While there is apparently no cure for “Midichlorians,” prescription drugs do exist that can reduce the number of Dark Side flare-ups and curb symptoms.
According to the video, embedded here below, the prescription drug Vaderex can help.
“The first time he had a Dark Side flare-up, he only slew a few sand people. But then he moved on to killing younglings. And when he tried to murder his best friend, I knew he needed help. That’s when we found Vaderex.”
The bulk of new Dragon*Con TV videos premiere exclusively between panels at (you guessed it) the 4-day Dragon*Con event, but the crew usually releases a small taste of what’s to come via their YouTube channel and website, according to DCTV’s Chris ‘Crispy’ Lloyd, who conceived the hilarious Jedi Valtrex spoof embedded below.
