Star Wars’ Chewbacca gets leading role in Texas police recruiting video

Fox News

A police force in Texas got creative with a Star Wars-themed video, starring Chewbacca as a new recruit.

The video released Wednesday by the Fort Worth Police Department started with roll call and the distribution of assignments.  

“Jimmy. You get the Wookiee,” an officer at the front of the room said. “I’m sorry. Did you say the rookie?” Jimmy replied.

“No. The Wookiee,” the officer said, before the camera cut back to Jimmy staring at his new partner.

But in a seemingly normal day of activities for the twosome, the Wookiee’s unique skill set didn’t appear to translate that well to the world of law enforcement.

A routine traffic stop ended with Chewbacca shaking a woman’s car, practice time at the firing range led to an out-of-this-world explosion and combat training left another officer at a bit of a disadvantage.

Jimmy also had an issue with the Wookiee after he didn’t clean his hair out of the shower drain.

And in an ode to the fallen Han Solo, Jimmy attempted to console a sad Wookiee during lunch.

“Hey… I’m sorry about Han,” Jimmy said. As a distraught Chewbacca got up and left, the officer shouted, “You wanna talk about it?”

Inspired by the dramatic opening scroll of the Star Wars movies, the department closed its video in a similar fashion.

“Attention Wookies!” it began, before making a quick edit.

“Attention Rookies!” it read. “Welcome to the Fort Worth Police Department!”

“Remember to always show courtesy and respect to our citizens and always provide professional service.”

“And may the force be with you!”

The video has received a lot of praise online, gaining more than 4,500 reactions and shares on Facebook.

    Oh, evil empire, what you won’t do to convince People that YOU are the good guys?!

    Quite a stretch using fiction to place your role with the side that is the People, instead of the power mongering tyrants that wear the spiffy uniforms and oppress their “citizenry”.

    Now do a video with you upholding your worthless oath with the Bill of Rights in the margin so We can compare? No? Didn’t think so.
