Nerds Flip Out Over 'Star Wars' Walker Dog Fantasy Video

People are totally freaking out over this video, of a Star Wars toy living as a dog. It really is incredibly well done! But fellow dog-haters may not enjoy it as much.

Way to leave out his description of why he made it: "When I was a kid, there are two things I wanted badly and never got… A real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker."

You should've met this guy who came to our garage sale a year or so ago, where I sold off my entire Star Wars collection after advertising on Craigslist.
He came to our sale on no less than 4 separate visits. He ended up buying most of the collection from me to the tune of over $300.
The 2nd or 3rd visit, he told us that he hadn't been able to make it back sooner because he had to fix a broken window, and that his wife was furious at him because he was supposed to be saving his money for a Cruise.
Then he told me the story about how his mother sold/threw away his entire collection of Star Wars toys without telling him, when he was 15.
He had never gotten over it, and was buying everything back, and more, piece by piece.

I got an AT-AT Walker for Christmas when I was like 9 or so. It was the most spectacularly awesome Christmas present I ever received — especially because my parents had made it fairly clear to me in advance that it was too expensive and I wasn't getting one — right up until mid-March, when to of the legs came off on consecutive days. That was pretty much the saddest week ever.

I was disappointed it didn't actually vaporize those squirrels.

But I'm long, long past my stages of disappointment with George Lucas ventures, so.

Maybe those squirrels were ranged at one seven decimal two nine?

"fellow dog-haters"?!?!?!?

Dead. to. me.

@Clarence Rosario:

Yes! What is up with the evil generalization?!?

There are some asshole dogs in this city (mostly because they have asshole people looking after them), but you have not met EVERY dog.

And some cats are real fuckheads too.

Bill Murray's protests aside, you can like both dogs and cats.

I choose to just hate Star Wars.

@CD, @DD: I live with two dogs AND a cat.

I prefer them over most people.

@Goons: DEADER!

It's one of the few movies where being stoned makes it MORE boring.

Art Yucko (#1,321)

the main thing that makes it boring, though, is the problem of being all-grown-up.

goons, please report to the nearest…RUN!!!

I am on Team Cat, but I loved the video anyway.
