Videos of people fighting often go viral, and it can sometimes feel like a step down for humanity. For example, that recent video of families fighting at Disneyland is sure to dampen anyone’s view of the Happiest Place on Earth. However, sometimes a video will trick you into watching something truly delightful. Earlier this month, a post went viral for showcasing a street fight that turned into a hilarious and adorable lightsaber battle.
“Hey, what, you Ricky Ricardo-looking motherf***er!,” one guy shouts angrily at the beginning of the video.
It really looks like the folks in this video are about to have a full-on brawl with each other, until they all whip out plastic lightsabers. One side eventually wins by using the Force. (Excellent acting done by these guys!)
The video caught the attention of the Internet, currently boasting over 715,000 likes and 246,000 retweets.
Many people commented on the video, clearly loving the direction it takes.
“I love dweebs,” @coffeespoonie wrote.
“It always escalates to the Jedi sh**,” @lomonaco_james joked.
“It’s getting to where you can’t walk down the street without being force choked no more,” @fanartiguess added.
Some people even spruced up the video by adding music. For example, here’s “Duel of Fates” from The Phantom Menace:
Others added more realistic sabers to the video:
Nice work, Internet! What would you do if you saw a “fight” like this break out on the street? Tell us in the comments!
