J.J. Abrams Makes Out With a Wookie for Charity
We all remember the ice bucket challenge that swept the world. The hot new awareness-raising trend these days is a little more tame. Instead of dumping a bucket of ice on your head, all you have to do is “Lady and the Tramp” a Twizzler with someone. Simple, effective. Celebrities are doing it, and Jimmy Kimmel in particular seems like a big fan. Kimmel challenged Star Wars director J.J. Abrams to a Twizzler challenge. And the hairy results speak for themselves.
It’s no ice bucket challenge. But the wookie sure seems to be enjoying it. The #TwizzlerChallenge is meant to raise awareness for autism. April is autism awareness month, and if you’d like to make a contribution, check out New York Collaborates for Autism.
