In the following video we seen Kevin Smith's reaction to the announcement that J.J. Abrams will be directing Star Wars Episode VII.

Smith seems to be under the influence of something - possibly medically related - as he goes into why he wasn't the best choice for helming Star Wars and gives specific reasons.

It's quite the humerous video (warning: adult language), but for something more serious from Smith about Star Wars, he previously offered his own ideas which centered around a Boba Fett time travel story for Episode VII that involved a deceased childhood friend of his.

Kevin Smith also offers another choice to direct instead of "Jar Jar Abrams," with Wayne Gretzky. Smith, a self-confessed hockey fan, also has a six-part episode TV series in the works with Hit Somebody and has been seen playing hockey on his AMC show Comic Book Men.
