Drunk Ewoks make for good tv

Via Warming Glow: "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."
