As far as I’m concerned, there’s no better way to start off your day than with this behind-the-scenes video from Return of the Jedi in which puppeteer Tim Rose helps Admiral Ackbar practice his lines…in a delightfully filthy manner. This whole thing makes me wonder what other semi-perverted footage lies deep within the bowels of the Lucasfilm archives. Is there video footage out there of Yoda talking about getting it on with Yaddle? Might we one day see a YouTube clip of Howard the Duck ruminating about blumpkins? The mind boggles. (Via Fork Party)
