A Navy Crew Recreated the Force Awakens Trailer on an Aircraft Carrier, and It’s Most Impressive

Using everything from state-of-the-art fighter jets to a charismatic mop bucket, the crew of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower has pulled off quite an homage with its version of a Star Wars trailer.

Created by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Alex Delgado, the spoof of the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer tapped several sailors and a wide range of settings across the ship to create a charming clip that shows just how excited the crew is about the upcoming movie.

While the scenes of real-life jets taking on TIE fighters and a well-rendered version of Kylo Ren's lightsaber are nice, it's hard to beat the laugh-out-loud shot of a spinning mop bucket playing the part of spherical droid BB-8. Sometimes, as countless Star Wars fans can attest, practical effects are the best effects.
