UWA's Nod To Star Wars Straight-Up Wins The Internet

Today, if you haven’t noticed, is Star Wars Day, otherwise known as "good luck trying to avoid someone saying 'May the 4th be with you'."

And, today being the nerdiest of days, of course, the internet is going bananas over it.

Not letting a marketing moment slip through their fingers, we found some great social posts with a distinct Aussie flavour.

But by far our favourite thing to pop up in our newsfeeds, an AMAZING video by the University of WA.

For no other reason than Star Wars Day, the video features BB8 rolling through the grounds and buildings of UWA, with cameos of Darth Vader, C3P0 and a Stormtrooper.

The audio backdrop of the video, the Star Wars theme (naturally) is the real star here. We think is one of the cleverest showcasing of the UWA Conservatorium of Music we’ve ever seen.

Check it out up top.
