Mr. Sadler had some similar things to say about Star Wars.

Ahead of the release of the upcoming eighth film The Last Jedi, actor Mark Hamill made a prank video for charity as a part of Star Wars initiative Force for Change. I'm not sure you need to go HAM buying all of them, but, if you have a particular favorite movie (or movies) from the Star Wars series, they're totally worth flopping out a buck for. The Tonight Show joined in the fun by cutting Star Wars clips into a reasonable facsimile of "All Star", something we definitely don't need but now that it's out there, is completely necessary in our lives. Today will be filled with Star Wars references and awful Yoda and Chewy impressions, but also a lot of deals and a lot of fandom. Darth Vader and other memes regarding the dark side of the Force are typically shared on this day. If you want to keep corporations from co-opting the day, then bust out your Princess Leia costume and let yourself get a little weird today.
