This year at Disney’s Star Wars weekend, Chewbacca imitated Axl Rose, while an Ewok dressed up like Slash to play guitar. It makes no sense on a certain level, but on another level it makes all the sense in the world. That Chewbacca isn’t rocking the American flag biker shorts or a catcher’s chest protector is a minor squabble.
At the same time, I would have been contented to live my entire life having never known of the existence of an Ewok dressed up like Slash and shredding on the guitar. But now that I have seen this there is no going back. That’s just awesome.
This also isn’t the first time something like this happened. Here’s Darth Vader rocking out to Metallica.
I’m so glad for the Internet, so I never have to go to one of these to experience this joy in person. Did the dignity of these fictitious characters go out the window with Mel Brook’s Spaceballs? (That’s a legitimate questions, btw, I really want an answer) [via io9]
