Whether or not this counts as a “Halloween” stunt (Americans seems to have long left behind the idea that Halloween costumes should be actually be, like, spooky) it certainly counts as a great stunt. Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat, who have already made a YouTube name for themselves with a magic carpet stunt and and Silver Surfer stunt, have this year recreated the speeders bikes from Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi.
It’s great how, just as the vid starts to get a little bit predictable they liven things up with a stormtrooper on a speeder bike too. Also, while the mirrors over the wheels don’t really work, they are a nice nod to the sandspeeder in A New Hope, which did use mirrors much more effectively to achieve a floating effect (well, it was easier in the more featureless deserts of Tunisia).
Admittedly, a few of the reaction shots look a tad set-up, but hey we’re still impressed!
