What if David Lynch Had Directed Return of the Jedi?

I really like David Lynch and I wish this wasn't just a trailer edited by a fan. It isn't too far from reality, though. George Lucas approached David Lynch in 1981 to direct The Return of the Jedi, the third and last episode of the trilogy.

I bet his version wouldn't be as dark as this video. You might wonder why David Lynch refused. The answer may be found in the interview that he gave in this video.
