Joel and Jared Erickson have made a found footage-style video called "Darth Baby's Lightsaber," in which a toddler playfully wields the weapon of choice for a Jedi Knight. And while it's an incredibly lifelike slice of fiction, we can't help but wish that Darth Baby was, in fact, a real thing. There's so much potential there for his parents! Think about it: a "Star Wars"-themed bedroom, a tiny Darth Vader helmet and the most dangerous birthday party ever!
Joel Erickson has corralled effects and sound credits for movies like "Argo," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," so it's no surprise that the short looks so professional. However, expecting parents might want to think twice about bringing "Star Wars" into their kids' life at such an early age ... not because the movie is too daunting for the little ones, per se, but we just wouldn't want to let Junior get his hands on a lightsaber, would we? It's all fun and games until someone's hand gets cut off, as Luke Skywalker knows all too well.
