J.J. Abrams & Chewbacca took the Twizzler Challenge on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Posted on


This is not the Lady and the Tramp you’re looking for.

In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Jimmy Kimmel has asked celebrities to partake in the Twizzler Challenge, made popular by New York Collaborates for Autism. And on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he had everyone’s favorite Wookiee and J.J. Abrams participate in the challege. As the Force Awakens director learned the hard way, even closing in on a kiss with Chewie is a hairy affair. (As a bonus treat for Star Wars fans, however, it’s worth rewatching the video to see a few of The Force Awakens‘ practical costumes.)

But the two are good sports and even task a new pair to take on the challenge, proving Chewbacca may have secretly been a Friends fan all this time.
