'Star Wars': Stephen Colbert Knows How to Avoid 'Force Awakens' Spoilers
Stephen Colbert has found a way to avoid Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoilers on social media.
Ahead of the J.J. Abrams film's release, the Late Show host figured out on Wednesday night that he could flood Twitter with fake spoilers in order to drown out the real ones.
For example, "There's a scene where Chewbacca gets into some dark chocolate and has to spend the night at the vet."
Additionally, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber is actually quite chatty, Samuel L. Jackson makes an inquisitive cameo, and Ewoks are facing a new life-threatening crisis.
Colbert shared his strategy online and invited fans to do the same.
That tri-blade lightsaber turns out to be able to talk. Its catchphrase: “Hey! I'm lightsaberin' here!" #spoilerspoilers— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) December 17, 2015
Samuel L. Jackson comes back to life as Mace Windu and exclaims, "What's in your wallet?" #spoilerspoilers— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) December 17, 2015
Once everyone finds out they're delicious, the Ewoks are hunted to extinction. #spoilerspoilers— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) December 17, 2015
