Perhaps when he was but a wee nerd, J.J. Abrams knew that one day he’d direct a Star Wars film. Perhaps, as he sat in his movie theater seat with his giant bucket of popcorn, he knew he’d one day serve as the embodiment of a whole culture’s hopes and dreams. Then again, maybe J.J. Abrams just knew from an early age what he loved the most and did everything he could to make those things his life.
Whatever the reasoning, J.J. Abrams has spend the better part of two decades delivering on some of the most classic pieces of film and television in the modern age. Whether it’s Felicity, Alias, Lost, Fringe, Mission: Impossible, Star Trek or Star Wars, there are few in Hollywood that can match the majesty that is a Bad Robot production, and to prove it, someone put together a lovely compilation that shows off just how awesome the man of two Js truly is.

Now, the source of this video is up for debate as, originally, Reddit claimed it to be an official Abrams release. However, since the YouTube link in question has now been removed, all we have is this Vimeo mirror which leaves us with some doubt as to who actually created the video.

So, to whoever commissioned this piece of genius, we simply off your our thanks.
