Star Wars fandom and Internet videos -- if there are two things more perfectly suited for each other in the universe, I've yet to figure out what they are. I lost count of how many hilarious/bizarre videos have been inspired by Lucas' sci-fi saga ages ago, but I suspect I'll always remember Patrick Boivin's AT-AT Day Afternoon -- if for no other reason than because it features the greatest use of a Jabba the Hutt action figure I've ever seen.
If the title doesn't give it away, Boivin's short takes a toy AT-AT from the Hoth battle scene in Empire Strikes Back and turns it into a dog. He then follows the toy as it spends an afternoon doing dog-like things -- chasing squirrels, playing with other dogs, relieving itself ...
I'm not sure how Boivin did it, but the AT-AT motion effects are good. The toy really appears like a dog and makes me want my own AT-AT puppy.
Check out Boivin's latest video (following on the heels of such classics as Bruce Lee vs. Iron Man) after the jump.
