Clever STAR WARS Fan Hits the Road With BB-8

As a Star Wars fan you probably rolled with the Rebel Alliance against the Empire before, and you roll with Resistance against the First Order now. You follow the path of a Jedi Knight, and you would never travel down the road to the Dark Side. Yeah, you go traverse the galaxy like Anakin and not Darth Vader, but do you roll with BB-8? No, I mean do you literally roll with BB-8 when you hit the road, like this clever fan?

BB-8-Car-Full
Reddit user dubsalidy saw this Star Wars fan and their decked-out car driving down the road with BB-8 rolling alongside the back. Well, it wasn’t really BB-8, but the back passenger side tire made it look like The Force Awakens‘ little round astromech droid was following the car, as though the car was Rey on Jakku.

Considering the person was operating a metal death machine at the time, we won’t hold it against him or her for not managing to get decent video.

Best I can tell that little hashtag on the car, #ISPYBB8, is another creation of the driver, making this the coolest (or nerdiest–for some of us those are the same thing) around. So try to keep an eye out for it in California (that’s the best guess based on the car’s plates), or possibly any imitators that might start driving around elsewhere.

Oh, and if you do find the car, do not follow it. It will NOT bring you to the location of Luke Skywalker, but it might scare the driver.

What is your favorite use of BB-8 so far? Roll into our comments section and let us know.
