In our latest episode of Brown Bag Wine Tasting, William Shatner sat down with the man behind Hip Hop Stormtrooper, Stryder. Although Stryder created Hip Hop Trooper in his early years, he credits William for being the first man in space with hip hop swag during his time on Star Trek. Since then, people like Stryder have been making Star Wars culture, something that in the past was considered nerdy, pretty cool aka swag.
We dug deeper into the Star Wars world and realized that SWAG means something more than we thought.
When George Lucas created Star Wars 40 years ago, there's no way he could've known that someday there'd be a viral video featuring stormtroopers twerking. None of us could've known.
