Video of the Week: Kid’s Reaction to ‘Empire Strikes Back’ Reveal

Posted on Oct 07

Let me start off with this disclaimer: I am not a Star Wars fan. I haven’t seen any of the movies, and I’m totally fine with that. So obviously, I am not the one who found this amusing video. Please thank sci-fi nerd Brandon Chesnutt for this discovery.

You definitely don’t have to be a Star Wars enthusiast to get a good laugh from this video. A dad recorded his son and daughter watching The Empire Strikes Back for the first time and reacting to Luke Skywalker finding out that Darth Vader is his father. The looks on the four-year-old son’s face are priceless during the revelation. He switches from astonishment, to confusion, to anger and finally to a blank stare of disbelief. He’ll fondly (or embarrassingly) look back on this when he’s older and thank his good old dad for capturing the moment on camera.

Enjoy the short video, and have a fantastic weekend! And, for those of you who live in Michigan or just hate the Yankees, GO TIGERS!
