Weather reporter sneaks 12 “Star Wars” puns into 40-second forecast

If you were hoping to somehow escape the Star Wars madness taking over the world right now, you’re out of luck: the Force has even infiltrated our weather reports!

Even if you’re not a fan of the sci-fi saga, you should be able to grasp and appreciate the clever wordplay of someone who can pack the titles of three films and a bunch of its iconic characters in a 40-sec weather report. Or, as Darth Vader would say: “The pun game is strong with this one.” And remember: “If you’re Forced to Awaken early tomorrow morning, it will be on the Dark Side.”
