I’ve never been to Los Angeles, but I take it that running into a Stormtrooper along Hollywood Blvd. is no big thing. It’s probably also no big deal to run into a celebrity either. How about this though, a celebrity in Stormtrooper armor, and more than that, one of the stars of Star Wars in Stormtrooper armor, offering you a chance to go to the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and meet the stars? No, this is not a Charlie Kaufman movie, this is the latest video for the Omaze campaign, Star Wars: Force for Change.
Omaze is presently selling tickets at $10 a piece, raising money for 15 different charities. In exchange, you’ll get your chance to win a round trip to either L.A. or London, to stay at a four star hotel, to walk down the red carpet at the Force Awakens premiere, to meeting the stars of the film, and, most importantly, the opportunity to be one of the first people to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
And the kindly Stormtrooper offering you this extravagant opportunity of a lifetime? Why it’s Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.
“The last time anybody saw me in a stormtrooper outfit was when we rescued the princess off the Death Star.” said Hamill in a press release, “I couldn’t be more proud of everyone in the Star Wars family. Your support has been absolutely fantastic, and I for one can’t wait for the premiere.”
“In just the first ten days, Star Wars fans from 107 countries have joined forces to support this campaign,” added Ryan Cummins, Omaze Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “And it’s been inspiring to see Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, J.J. Abrams and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens connecting with all of them for the benefit of 15 global charities.”
Let us check out the video then.
The campaign ends Friday December 4th at 11.59 pm PST. You can enter to win the contest yourself, here: Omaze.com/StarWars
