The big news that Google aims to acquire Motorola Mobility was inescapable yesterday, but after a while all the analysis and speculation got difficult to wade through. Leave it up to Taiwan’s Next Media Animation to cut through the crud and deliver the real meat of the news in a short video (below).

And, yes, it does include a lightsaber-wielding Darth Steve Jobs and the Google co-founders riding on a pony. (Astute readers will remember Darth Steve Jobs from Next Media’s Antennagate video last year.)

While undeniably zany, the video still manages to cover the broad points raised by the Google/Motorola deal. We know that the acquisition will give Google a healthy amount of patents to defend Android, and that it will likely cause  Google some friction with existing Android partners, even though they won’t admit it in public.

I just hope Next Media will be able to further illustrate the adventures of Darth Steve Jobs with future videos and that the Google guys will have more than a bumbling droid to help protect them.
