The hosts of “The Today Show” dressed up in Star Wars costumes for the typical “here’s how you can decorate for Halloween” segment, and they hired a couple people to be in Ewok costumes, which was a nice touch. An even nicer touch? This email from a friend of mine: “For what it’s worth, a friend who works at the Today Show confirms that they were both midgets and drunk.” *looks skyward* Thank you, God!
It takes a while for this video to get going, but the payoff provides all sorts of unexpected delights. Ewoks fighting, moonwalking, leg-humping… If George Lucas had made the Ewoks like this in Return of the Jedi, it totally would have justified their existence.
