    Go to Hoth, LSU!

    This surprisingly heartwarming ESPN commercial is several years old, but I'd like to see you repel awesomeness of this magnitude.

  2. Things We Saw Today: Madame De Ackbar Can’t Repel Decorum Of This Magnitude

    My good sirs, I do believe this appears to be a trap.

    Madame de Ackbar, found art restorer Nerdscapes writes, "is a unique collage and paint art piece that will adorn the walls of the more discerning geek." You can find it, and other classic artworks like it (Otter Penguins is also a delightful choice), on their Etsy page.

  3. Adam Savage Outlines the Process of Making His Amazeballs Admiral Ackbar Costume

    We're showing a lot of restraint by not just typing "IT'S A TRAP!" in all caps here.

    The man beneath that Admiral Ackbar costume is none other than Mythbuster and friend of Geekosystem Adam Savage. Having top-notch fabrication skills and access to some of the best special effects minds around is bound to help one's cosplay game, but seriously, this is some next-level stuff. Savage showed off his costume on the floor of San Diego Comic Con and outlined its creation on Tested.

  5. Erik Bauersfeld On The Legacy Of Playing Star Wars’ Admiral Ackbar

    It Came From Outer Space

    Radio dramatist Erik Bauersfeld still gets fan mail to this day all thanks to three little words - "It's a trap!" Bauersfeld played the voice of Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi as well as voicing Bib Fortuna. And the work only took him about an hour and a half.

  6. Things We Saw Today: Brave Fan Art (Already)

    Things We Saw Today

    Not that we're complaining, but Pixar's Brave doesn't come out until 2013. We've barely seen any official art from it, but some of us are way too psyched to not draw up some fan art featuring our newest heroine, Merida. This piece is by DeviantARTist Keena53, and we are more than happy to share it! (via Diary of a Death Starlette)

  7. Geek Parenting 101: Famous Quotes

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    During one's first year of speaking, it is rare that anything truly unique comes out. Usually it's the standard fare of "Mom/Dad," "Cat," "Dog," "I'm hungy," etc. Rarely do they quote Star Wars. When their parents do teach them to do so, however, the adorableness might just make the room explode. See for yourself. Not only can this kid imitate the sounds that tigers, cats, monkeys and robots make, but they can also quote Admiral Ackbar's most famous line. Congratulations, Anonymous Video Parents, you're kid is probably going to grow up awesome. The look of pride on the father's face speaks for itself. (via The Daily What)

  8. The Ole Miss-Admiral Ackbar Commercial Loved By A Nation

    You may remember that the Ole Miss Rebels are looking for a new on-field mascot. And the reason you might remember this may well be that for a while, one of the most widely-supported choices was none other than Star Wars’ Admiral Ackbar. Sadly, that ship has sailed (this lists the final five choices as “a land shark, a bear, a horse, a lion or two characters named Hotty and Toddy”), but now the Ackbar campaign lives on through what appears to be a universally-loved ESPN commercial from last night – and it’s not hard to see why. >>>Check it out at SportsGrid.

  9. Finally: Admiral Ackbar Toilet

    We've previously seen beloved Star Wars squid-creature Admiral Ackbar mounting a glorious campaign to be the new mascot for Ole Miss; now, the creator of the famous Mega Man hoodie, brings us an Admiral Ackbar toilet.

  10. Admiral Ackbar Doing Well in Early Student Voting for Ole Miss Mascot

    This past weekend, we reported that a campaign was underway at Ole Miss to make Admiral Ackbar the university's new mascot. As geeked out as we were by the possibility of the beloved, squidlike Star Wars Rebel Alliance Commander of "It's a trap!" fame leading a different set of Rebels on the playing field, we were skeptical that students would want to oust their current plantation-owning semi-mascot, Colonel Reb.

    Well, color us happily surprised: an early report from TMZ on yesterday's voting says that Ackbar is currently the "favorite" among the student body.

  11. Admiral Ackbar Mounting Glorious Campaign To Become New Ole Miss Mascot

    It's true that colleges occasionally become dissatisfied with their mascots and swap them out for a new one. Ordinarily, schools go straight for another conventional college mascot -- but could Admiral Ackbar, the squid-like Star Wars character, be poised to become the new mascot of Ole Miss?

    That's right, Ole Miss (The University of Mississippi) -- the school with a slaveowning plantation owner as its mascot. Will the undergraduates of Dixie cast off offensiveness for absurdity? Is a Rebel Alliance admiral a match for a Confederate colonel? Would the Millennium Falcon defeat the Merrimac in a battle? Details below!
