Cool Videos: Watch a 4-year-old react to the end of Empire Strikes Back

10.03.2011

I don't remember the first time I saw EMPIRE STRIKES BACK but I was probably the age of the kid in this video below. And I don't remember exactly how I reacted when I found out the evil Darth Vader was actually Luke Skywalker's father but it was probably something like this. Whatever it was, it impacted me enough that I went out almost immediately afterward and bought this Darth Vader Collector's Case.

Recently a dad decided to film his kids watching the end of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK to record their reaction to the climactic scene. There's some debate in the YouTube comments about the veracity of this video but then again YouTube commenters love screaming "FAKE!" at every video that has over 4,000 views. For what it's worth, 4-year-olds are very hard to coach to do anything. But this is what's fun about having kids. For all the crying, screaming, fighting, yelling, biting and pooping, nothing can match that moment when you show your kid the original STAR WARS for the first time. Unless this was the George Lucas modified Blu-rays, then this is the worst dad ever.

"We can rule the galaxy as...." As what? How will they rule the galaxy? It just cut off at the crucial moment. Now I'll never know what he was going to say dammit!

Please, not another stupid ass kid reaction video that spreads all over for some reason, this video is pathetic but people keep sending it to me.

Who the fuck thinks this is even remotely cute.

Yep, i'm sure it will be mentioned on the news soon and the autotune remix won't be far behind, i already wish it goes away already

Yep that's about right. The only thing missing is the massive gasps through out the theater when I 1st saw it. But I am pretty sure the whole place looked like that.

I think the kids would have been looking at the camera more if it were fake.

They only look at it once at the reveal and that's a genuine look of "OH NO THEY DI'N'T". Then they went back to watching the screen.
That being said, let's abolish the Prequels and never show them to our kids so they all get to have this moment.

I'll say fake...

At 0:09 seconds, right when the big line is delivered, the boy looks at the dad and then the camera as if to say "Okay dad, NOW it's time to do what you told me to do." There was just nothing genuine about his reaction and it seemed like pure staged surprise. I normally never cry "fake" over many things, but this was obviously set up and probably trying to be the next "David After Dentist" or something.

I cried at the end of T2 as well as a kid lol

When I first watched Empire, I didn't have this reaction :[ Becase over the years I had heard so many "Luke, I am your father" jokes on tv and in movies.. It wasn't a surprise to me anymore by the time I saw it :/

Instead, I'll have to just be satisfied with the chills I get everytime I see Vader standing in silhouette at the Carbon chamber waiting for Luke to arrive :D

I say that's a genuine reaction. Reminds me when I was watching and cried a lot when T-800 lowers himself into the steel mill in T2.
