NERD ALERT: Jason Sudeikis generously bought his whole family lightsabers, and his son can't figure out how to use it. GROAN.
The actor comedian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and shared a video of his little Jedi, Otis, struggling to wield the weapon.
Instead of using its powers to destroy everything in sight like saaaay, a tantruming Kylo Ren might, the toddler points it downward, running it across the floor like a vacuum.
PULL IT TOGETHER, JUNIOR. Whatever that you're not quite two. This is IMPORTANT.
Luckily GQ stepped in with basic how-to instructions to help other parents avoid this same fate:
When in combat, hold above the waist. Don't get caught napping.
Make your own sound effects. Make-believe Jedis don't giggle. The make fake laser-y sounds every time they slice that saber through the air.
Use two hands, but use the handle. Don't put your hand on the actual saber! Have some respect for its technology.
Meanwhile, if anyone has a light saber that doubles as a vacuum, get at me. I would definitely buy that product.
