Spit Take Stormtroopers 'twerk' - much to the dismay of the Empire

Move over Miley Cyrus, you've got some intergalactic competition.

A recent posting on YouTube has comments being posted faster than the Millennium Falcon's Kessel Run.

For a second there, I thought it was going to be a Stormtroopers Flashmob

From the "making of" video: "Worst thing that could happen is getting a pinch between the leg plate and the groin plate" ooh, ow!

That was great! Can't stand Miley Cyrus but for some reason 'twerking' didn't seem so, so... disgusting with the storm troopers. Maybe it's because they didn't have their tongues hanging out.

Miley doesn't really twerk. They do seem to be, though.

Also, seeing as twerking has important cultural dance roots that trace back to actual African traditional dances, calling it disgusting is somewhat problematic.

I think I know what you're getting at, but I don't think it's automatically problematic to find a long-standing cultural tradition disgusting. (My people have a long tradition of eating jellied fish that's been cooked in lye--I have no problem with anyone calling it disgusting).
