J.J. Abrams and a fuzzball got pretty close to locking lips for a good cause.

Earlier this month, Jimmy Kimmel called out the Force Awakens director and Chewbacca to partake in the Twizzler Challenger to raise autism awareness after Kimmel did the challenge with Rihanna. The Twizzler Challenge essentially recreates the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp but with Twizzlers.

Once the participants have completed the Twizzler Challenge, they can call on two more people to do it as well. It hasn’t caught on quite like the Ice Bucket Challenge just yet, but plenty of people have already done it.

Abrams and Chewbacca finally got a chance to take on the challenge on the Star Wars set. Although they didn’t ask Boba Fett or any of the background characters to help out, they pulled it off with gusto before challenging a famous friend.


It’s for a good cause, but Abrams might be coughing up hairballs for weeks now.
