“It’s basically, like, seven levels of internet parody. You have Admiral Ackbar, and this is his internet video, and it’s a rap, so obviously he’s going to rap about traps because of the “It’s a trap!” line/meme – it’s just what internet Admiral Ackbar does. BUT! For some reason, Ackbar isn’t allowed to do the obvious internet video that he wants to do, and instead he’s stuck with this really banal assignment of explaining fire safety information, but he JUST CAN'T RESIST still rapping about traps because it’s his internet-video destiny, and the resulting consequences are tragic and amazing.”
