That time The Verge was hijacked by Stormtroopers

New, 1 comment

Last week is something of a blur, now, for most of the Verge staff who attended CES, but I vaguely recall at some point stormtroopers showed up to our stage. This video confirms it. Two members of the 501st Legion, the Guinness record holder for "World's Largest Star Wars Costuming Group," hijacked our stage for an impromptu interview with one another. And by "interview," I mean they made a series of corny jokes. It was very surreal in person. (Caution: mild spoilers from The Force Awakens)

The stormtroopers were on hand to help promote Sphero's BB-8, and when we interviewed co-founder Adam Wilson, they managed to pop up in that video, too.
