Scotch Trooper: Photographer Combines Love For Storm Troopers And Whiskey In Hilarious Series
These Storm Troopers might’ve finally found the droids they’re looking for—but instead of a couple chatty robots, they’ve got bottles of whiskey. A scotch lover who fittingly calls himself Scotch Trooper (aka @scotch_trooper) photographs the toy soldiers playfully interacting with the brown liquor in a myriad of ways: they unbox massive bottles, enjoy a nice pour, and do what they do best—guard the liquid with their guns drawn.
Sometimes, Darth Vader even makes an appearance to express his admiration for the beverage. For those who fancy themselves Star Wars fans and whiskey enthusiasts, the images combine the best of both worlds by imagining a reality in which the two seemingly disparate subjects make perfect sense together.
Today is my Christmas. Around 17 years ago, close to when these scotches were born, the Star Wars world was buzzing about the first Star Wars film since Return of the Jedi (which I remember seeing as a 5yr old with my neighbor). Unfortunately, it lacked the same look and feel as our beloved original Trilogy and felt like a completely different set of films. And don't get me started on the Lucas "Enhancements". But today, as my daughter is now the same age as I was seeing ROTJ, I am excited to see the Star Wars world buzzing again for what looks to be an amazing film. I can't wait to feel like I'm 5 years old again. #StarWars #TheBalvenie #lukeskywalker #hansolo #princessleia
