Let’s hope the temperatures on Halloween don’t reach sub-zero wherever this little Jedi is trick-or-treating. The guts of his costume could become a means by which he stays warm.
In a YouTube video that’s sure to warm the hearts of Star Wars fans — and shame less-creative costume-making dads — a small boy is seen dressed as Luke Skywalker from “Empire Strikes Back.” But what makes it all a universal hit is the tiny stuffed tauntaun that the boy appears to be riding atop.
The boy’s legs make up the lower half of the stinky, furry snow lizard. Fake Luke legs are draped over the animal to make it look like the kid is riding it around his kitchen while mom and dad cheer him on — and laugh.
The video was uploaded by YouTuber Clint Case, and it mimics the action in this famous film scene. On YouTube, the video has 459,000 views, but over on Facebook — where it’s even been shared and called “Too cute!” by Luke (Mark Hamill) Skywalker himself — it’s been watched 37 million times.
And, because little sisters are the worst, you just know this kid was going to come across a roaring wampa.
Luckily, Luke gets away this time.
