Ever wondered what “Silent Night” would sound like if Chewbacca
roared sang it?
How It Should Have Ended, a YouTube channel which makes animated parodies of major motion pictures, posted a hilarious rendition of the Christmas classic sung by everyone’s favorite furry “Star Wars” companion.
The video is a series of snippets of Chewie serenading us with his famous growl, spliced with images of Han Solo and the gang looking disturbed and saying what many are thinking watching the video, “this is ridiculous.” Although you can’t accuse the Wookiee of possessing the most tuneful singing voice, he does give the song plenty of gusto.
The viral video is not the first Christmas-related “Star Wars” bit, as the popular sci-fi franchise had a special which ran on CBS in 1978, and included most of the original trilogy’s cast. But “Star Wars Holiday Special” received such a negative reception that it seems to have been mostly lost in the Jedi annals or left floating in the outer reaches of the galaxy.
