STAR WARS with Nerdist News and Corey Vidal: Chubby Wampa
By Rebecca Lando on May 6, 2014
Sure, May the Fourth may have come and gone, but that’s no reason to stop celebrating all things Star Wars, and we’ve got a couple of great videos to help you keep the Force alive.
First, Corey Vidal, Canada’s biggest Star Wars fan, goes up against Jessica Chobot in a decisive round of Chubby Wampa – Nerdist’s very own version of Chubby Bunny, but made all the more awesome (and difficult) with jumbo marshmallows frosted to look like Stormtroopers. Why did we make Stormtrooper marshmallows for a game called Chubby Wampa? Because we’re the brains, sweetheart!
Corey also teamed up with LucasFilm to create the epic finale (for now?) to his multi-part lightsaber battle with fellow YouTube creator WheezyWaiter (Craig Benzine). Clash at the Cantina is a fantastically well-done paean to the Star Wars universe – and if that Cantina set looks familiar, this may be why.
Let us know how you celebrated Star Wars on May the Fourth and every day in the comments below!
