Thank you, Star Wars marketing people. If you hadn’t already persuaded my diehard Trekker wife to see the new movie, this video of BB-8 meeting a small hedgehog would seal the deal completely.
Also encountered by BB-8: marbles, a vinyl record and leaves.
You know what’s not encountered by him? ME. Because I have the toy but the app to control him does not work on my Samsung phone. Which I won at a junket for Disney-owned Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Dammit, Mickey, get your corporate crap together. You’re supposed to be good at bringing the cuteness everywhere.
