Finally, someone using digital editing and Star Wars for the greater good, tricking young children into thinking ewoks are real! Self professed geek dad, Anthony Herrera, handy with a camera and photoshop tells the tale on his blog:
A year ago we took a trip to Sequoia National Park. I wanted to excite my daughter while being in such amazing surroundings. Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chuck of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.
This man is truly a master in the was of being a Geek Dad, reminds me of that one time I photoshopped H.R. Giger’s “Alien” into a picture of my son sound a sleep… oh how we laughed.
He still sleeps in the garage.
