Mark Hamill is perhaps one of the more well-known actors in Star Wars, and after watching this clip I’m convinced he’s one of the best pranksters.
In an ad for “Force For Change”, (a Star Wars themed charity which supports children’s groups like Unicef Kid Power and Starlight Children’s Foundation), Mark surprises fans while they say some famous lines from the films.
What’s wonderful about the shenanigans which unfold on the screen, is Mark’s face through most of it. And the reaction’s of the fans. Especially the last guy, who’s look of surprise made my day.
I think these kinds of videos are great examples of fundraisers done right.
You have an actor or someone who’s famous pull a gag and “prank” a fan. Then you have what the video’s all about and you’re golden, which is exactly what they do in this clip.
Mark has done several of these “Force For Change” fundraisers, and seems to enjoy pranking people in general. Never change Hamill, unless it’s for charity, of course. Continue to be an inspiration to all of us who wish to make a difference and pull off a good joke.
