The entire thing was completely off the wall.

This is not a drill! In a galaxy (not so) far away...they made a Star Wars holiday special so weird, so bizarre, that even some of the most die-hard fans hadn't seen it...until now.

What are your thoughts on this interesting moment in the space-time continuum? Watch the video and let us know?

It was a 97-minute musical variety show that aired on Nov. 17, 1978 on CBS. Critics and audiences reportedly hated it so much, that it was never re-aired or released on home video.


In fact, George Lucas was so unhappy with this special, he once said that if he had the time and a sledgehammer, he would track down every copy out there and smash it.

So we thought it would be fun to subject, err, treat a few Star Wars fans to their first viewing of this infamous holiday special to get their reactions.


And who could forget that weird AF scene where Chewie puts on a device that looks like an old-school hairdryer that provided him with something very strongly resembling virtual porn. No joke.
