    If you read the link, it’s not only possible he was kidding, it’s absolutely 100% definite he was kidding. He was giving an award to the publicist who worked on Empire Strikes Back, and he joked about how the only reason people think the movie was good is because the publicist did such a good job, Obviously he doesn’t think the publicist has magic powers that can convince people to like sucky movies, he was making a joke.
