Let’s face facts – Star Wars was made as a film series for kids, with plenty of action figures and toy spaceships sold alongside the movies to great success. But one day, those kids grow up; and they might not be willing to let go of their precious merchandise.
Such is the subject of this hilarious new Saturday Night Live sketch, which pokes gentle fun at adult collectors of Star Wars memorabilia in the style of a classic toy commercial.
Still, we should think before we laugh too hard – if the kids DID leave Kylo Ren in the box, in a few decades he could be worth enough to pay their own children’s university fees. See, investing can be fun too!
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is in cinemas from 17th December
