Are you ready for a solid dose of adorable, slightly weird, and thoroughly Star Wars-infused nostalgia?

Well then, get ready, because it turns out that the combination of the year 1979, Star Wars' legendary comic relief droid duo R2-D2 and C-3PO, and the TV show Sesame Street creates comedy gold.

And, apparently, a seriously sexually confused Artoo...

Yes, you saw and heard that right.

R2-D2 just fell in love with a fire hydrant.

Which, in turn, raises some substantial questions about the droid's ability to recognize an inanimate object as being different from another droid.

Unless, of course, he was just expressing his love for the fire hydrant to try to make Threepio jealous - or to make a heavily veiled comment about the nature of droids as de-facto slaves....

The big question now, though? Will the fire hydrant get to make a cameo appearance in [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158)?


What do you guys reckon? Adorable, or weird?
