Finally, someone’s done a mash-up of Jean-Ralphio and BB-8

When Star Wars met Parks and Recreation


Here’s a fun fact: did you know that Ben Schwartz, the actor who voices BB-8 in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is the same person who plays Jean-Ralphio in Parks and Recreation? 


OK, it’s unlikely there’s a huge crossover between fans of the world’s biggest sci-fi franchise and viewers of Amy Poehler’s political sitcom, but for those of us out there, here’s the mash-up we didn’t even know we needed… 

Because while BB-8 is an adorable squeaky droid who stole the hearts of millions of cinema-goers, Jean-Ralphio ranks among the most annoying characters in television history. Together they’re a match made in comedy heaven. Your eyes are about to piss tears of laughter. 

Take this scene on Jakku from TFA where BB-8 convinces Rey to adopt him with a series of lovable beeps and boops. What happens when Jean-Ralphio is dubbed over the top? Any fans of Parks and Rec can probably guess…

Homeless BB-8 is way cuter than homeless Jean-Ralphio.

Although, we have to admit, this does turn our frizown upsidizity…

Would Rey be so keen on her new companion if he constantly hit on her? We’re guessing not.


Still, at least Star Wars and Jean-Ralphio have one thing in common. They’re both…
