Video: Watch Real Speeder Bikes Cruise The Streets Of NYC


By: Benjamin Hart

There's few things more amazing than seeing Star Wars being brought to life before your eyes. Recently, that very thing happened in New York City when a team of YouTubers staged an epic Speeder Bike chase through the streets of NYC.

In celebration of Halloween, big name YouTube creators Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat collaborated on an amazing new video that brought a little piece of Endor to the Big Apple. The video shows Wellens and Carmella Rose dressed to look like Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, respectively, while riding a meticulous recreation of an Imperial Speeder Bike, first seen in Return Of The Jedi. Soon after, Neistat, dressed in Scout Trooper armor, gives chase on his own Speeder Bike, and even stops to pick up Iden Versio along the way. The video ends with the group appearing to have drawn the attention of the NYPD. You can watch the full video below, along with a duo of behind the scenes videos showing how it all got made:
