Because who doesn’t like pretending they’re a Wookie (besides, I’ve found out, a certain girlfriend while fooling around), there’s the Chewbelta (Amazon link), an unlicensed (why would you bother?) seatbelt cover that looks like Chewbacca’s bandolier.

This is a video of a good Samaritan attempting to fix a malfunctioning traffic/crosswalk light and bringing the whole pole down in the process. From what I could gather, the pole was being supported entirely by that tiny stick at its base, the same way you’d prop up a box
This is a video of unassuming ex-drug trafficker Pieter Tritton (who spent 10 years in an Ecuadorian prison as a result of his involvement) rating eight different television series and movies scenes of drug trafficking for realism.
