If your heart is on the Dark Side of the Force, prepare to be warmed to the Light. The hottest item from last week’s Star Wars merchandising frenzy “#ForceFriday” was a remote controlled droid named BB-8, from the upcoming filmStar Wars: The Force Awakens. R2-D2 has always been a household favorite droid, but BB-8 looks like he is pulling a pretty close second.
I won’t censor myself here: I am a mega Star Wars fan. But I also love puppies, so when I heard that Vanity Fair went ahead and placed the BB-8 droid in a room full of puppies, and posted a video of it, I raced to my computer faster than an X-Wing in the Death Star trench.
