Imagine a day with the “Capturing the Friedmans” family, but instead of raping children, they’re way into Star Wars!

Today’s episode finds two brothers drooling over a Stormtrooper outfit they wheeled and dealed off of Ebay, created by what one of the brothers refers to as a “geek.” Funny, eh? Then begins the trying on of this suit of armor from a galaxy, far, far away. It proves to be a huge pain in the ass to squeeze into this thing and soon the rest of the family joins in, trying to get one of the brothers into the goddamned suit. The words “Aren’t you a little fat for a Stormtrooper?” come to mind.

Be it real or fake, this footage is pretty uncomfortable to watch, but that’s a part of its charm. Star Wars geeks can be so tragically entertaining.
