Everyone knows that person. You know, the one that hasn’t seen Star Wars. You try to pretend it’s not a big deal, but deep down you can’t help but sneer a little at their lack of foresight when it comes to one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time.

This guy knew a girl like that and, well, just read what he had to say:

“Amanda seemed very confident in her knowledge of the Star Wars saga despite never having watched any of the Star Wars films. That was the first good sign. When we sat down to watch them, she started telling me what she thought the plots were going to be, so I told her to hold steady while I went to get my voice recorder.”

What’s amazing to me is that despite having never seen the movies, she’s familiar with Darth Vader, Chewie, Han(s) Solo, Yoda, R2D2 and all the rest of the characters. Just goes to show how ingrained those movies are in popular culture these days!

    The only part she forgot to mention was that the buns in Leia’s hair are not actually buns at all but fake headphones so that she can listen to music and doesn’t have to listen to her dad.
    And I am pretty sure they are actually danishes… You know for if she gets hungry while kissing her brother or something.
