WTFridays STAR WARS Edition: Donald Trump Gets Darth Vader-ized

We’ve got a bad feeling about this. We felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. What were they crying out for? Well, I may not have as many midi-chlorians as the next Hayden Christiansen out there, but I’d bet dollars to space doughnuts that they were clamoring for an all-Star Wars edition of Nerdist News WTFridays!

You said it, Artoo! In today’s episode, our resident Sith Lord Jessica Chobot transports you to the sillier side of the galaxy far, far away in less than twelve parsecs (or your money back)! (You won’t really get your money back; don’t be foolish.) So what lies in your future, young Padawans? Sure, you could search your feelings, but it’s probably easier if I just tell you. We’ve got everything from Donald Trump getting the Darth Vader treatment from Auralnauts to an electric guitar orchestra that would make Max Rebo weep hot tears of jealousy. In fact there’s too much Star Wars goodness to describe here, so you’ll just have to watch to see for yourself.

Looking to buy something special for the Star Wars superfan in your life? Well, you could buy them a copy of my new book, 100 Things Star Wars Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die. You could also peruse our Star Wars-themed holiday gift guide, which has the best selection of Star Wars swag this side of the Outer Rim.

That’s all for today’s show! What’s your favorite piece of Star Wars WTF-ery? Share it with us and discuss today’s show in the comments below.
