Enjoy a Roaring Yule Log With BB-8 This Christmas

Christmas weekend is upon us! And while you could put on the traditional Yule Log or even a burning Darth Vader, there’s a new option for Star Wars fans: to enjoy one hour in front of the fire alongside The Force Awakens‘ breakout droid, BB-8.

Sphero has posted a BB-8 themed Yule Log video; which features the adorably excitable droid as he embraces a Christmas ritual that has absolutely nothing to do with “a galaxy far, far away” (we’re really not sure how “canon” Life Day is any more) . Although this isn’t a full size recreation of BB-8, it’s the much smaller, app-enabled version of the droid that Sphero offers for sale on its website and other stores. And while BB-8 occasionally moves his head and makes a few of his distinctive chirps, he doesn’t really do much at all in this video. This is about as chill as BB-8 gets, but there’s still something soothing about the noises made by the fire.

This isn’t the first time that Sphero has used its BB-8 to spread a little holiday cheer. The droid has such emotive gestures that the company has been able to create several BB-8 videos on its YouTube channel, including this fun clip of BB-8 encountering some very “impressive” carved pumpkins for this year’s Halloween celebration.

We also really enjoyed this clip in which BB-8 reacts to his own reflection, with humorously disastrous results. You can watch more of the BB-8 videos here.

What did you think about Sphero’s BB-8 Yule Log video? And which holiday traditions should BB-8 explore in Sphero’s next video? Use the Force to share your comments below!
