J.J. Abrams and Chewbacca take the Twizzler challenge!
J.J. Abrams and Chewbacca, sittin’ in a tree. The duo took the Twizzler challenge, and came this close to locking lips, Lady and the Tramp style. Let’s backtrack for a sec, ’cause this is sounding pretty random.
Abrams and Chewie were taking part in this whole challenge thing thanks to Jimmy Kimmel. As Kimmel explained on his late night show, the Twizzler challenge is just like the ice bucket challenge, except that no one gets soaked and you get to eat a Twizzler. Instead of being for ALS, like the ice bucket challenge, the Twizzler challenge benefits autism. Also, you might just sneak a kiss from someone. So, why not nominate the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Han Solo’s co-pilot for the task?
The two accept graciously, even though it appears Abrams immediately regrets it because he ends up with a mouth full of wookie hair. Just like the ice bucket challenge, he then nominates Jennifer Aniston and Kimmel’s sidekick/security, Guillermo. It might be hard to top this one, though.
Another great thing about this little 2-minute clip is that Abrams and Chewie are somewhere in the Star Wars universe, since a bunch of extras wander around in the background. Kinda looks like there’s a bounty hunter back there, right?
Check out the video below, and now we’ll all wait our turn to take the Twizzlers challenge, too.
