A Today Show Halloween decorating segment was interrupted by a pair of scene stealing Ewoks, who began throwing food, fighting each other, doing the moonwalk, and humping both the floor and the leg of Al Roker, who was dressed as Han Solo. I know it might sound like I’m describing a FunnyOrDie parody or something, but it actually happened on live television.
There have been accusations that the little people in the suits were actually drunk before the segment began. At one point, one of the Ewoks tried to drink one of the alcoholic Halloween-themed beverages, and was scolded by Ann Curry (dressed as a mask-less Darth Vader), “You’re not allowed to have vodka!” The video is embedded after the jump. The madness begins around the 2 minute mark.
