A Dad Photoshopped Ewoks Into His Family Pictures to Convince His Kids Ewoks Were Real

Illustration for article titled A Dad Photoshopped Ewoks Into His Family Pictures to Convince His Kids Ewoks Were Real

I think I'm giving Anthony Herrera the dad of the year title. Why? Because when he brought his kids to Sequoia National Park he told them Ewoks lived there. Of course, his kids ended up being disappointed when they didn't see any Ewoks there. But don't worry! Herrera added Ewoks to the background of his family pictures.

THEY WERE THERE THE WHOLE TIME! In his words:

Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chuck of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can't say that she wasn't disappointed that we didn't find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn't see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I'm a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don't care. She'll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.

I always wondered how much I'd influence my future kids on their movie tastes. After seeing Herrera pull this off, I think I'm pretty much going to brainwash them into thinking stuff like Star Wars and Back to the Future happened in real life. Kids are gonna be awesome.

I'm sorry but this is just altogether too precious. No one loved Star Wars more than I, or awaited TROTJ with more anticipation. I made it through the recycled Death Star ok, but very nearly walked out when they trotted out the Teddy Bears. It was nothing but product placement, an ad for plush toys. The moment when that one Ewok came out of the bushes and approached Princess Leia marked the beginning of the end of Star Wars.
