VOTD: The Internet had fun with the ‘Star Wars’ teaser

JohnBoyega

If you’re like me, you used this Thanksgiving weekend to unplug from the Internet and get some much needed downtime.

Except you’re not like me, because all you did this weekend was make Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens memes.

Most had fun with that kooky new hilted lightsaber, but others drew comparisons between John Boyega’s black stormtrooper and Spaceballs, while others absolutely loved that droid on the soccer ball, among other things.

Of course, that wasn’t all. Someone absolutely had to remake the trailer out of Legos, and this guy just got to it first.

And someone else thought it would be cute to imagine what George Lucas’s version of this trailer would’ve looked like. You know, less of J.J. Abrams lens flares and more of everything else.

But I still like the first one best. Watch it below, and just a reminder, Star Wars Episode VII doesn’t come out until over a year from now on December 18, 2015.
