NERD ALERT: Jason Sudeikis generously bought his whole family lightsabers, and his son can’t figure out how to use it. GROAN.
The actor comedian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and shared a video of his little Jedi, Otis, struggling to wield the weapon.
Instead of using its powers to destroy everything in sight like saaaay, a tantruming Kylo Ren might, the toddler points it downward, running it across the floor like a vacuum.
PULL IT TOGETHER, JUNIOR. Whatever that you’re not quite two. This is IMPORTANT.
Luckily GQ stepped in with basic how-to instructions to help other parents avoid this same fate:
- When in combat, hold above the waist. Don’t get caught napping.
- Make your own sound effects. Make-believe Jedis don’t giggle. The make fake laser-y sounds every time they slice that saber through the air.
- Use two hands, but use the handle. Don’t put your hand on the actual saber! Have some respect for its technology.
Meanwhile, if anyone has a light saber that doubles as a vacuum, get at me. I would definitely buy that product.
