Almost every geek on the Internet (including me) is a cynical bastard these days, so naturally, a cute little video showing a 4-year-old reacting to the big reveal in The Empire Strikes Back has ignited a firestorm of controversy in message boards across the InterTubes. Staged or not, it’s still really fun and innocent, so it boggles the mind why grown men are so angry about it. Here’s the clip, you be the judge – faked or not?

About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
