If you have geek friends in social media, you might have noticed them posting the line "May the 4th be with you." That’s because today is an unofficial holiday called Star Wars Day. And if you’re the person in question sharing this line, see you in the theaters this December.
In the meantime, this is the time when all things about that world in a galaxy far, far away are celebrated. Apparently today, May 4, was chosen because it’s a convenient pun for the famous movie line "May the Force be with you." With a new sequel to be released this holiday season, awareness and excitement for the lucrative franchise created by George Lucas are very high.
If you’re a Star Wars fan and you want to express your love for the series, why limit yourself to one day? Thanks to a product called FanWraps, you can put decals based on popular Star Wars characters on your car. With these wraps, you can have a picture of Darth Vader or Boba Fett, or a logo of the Rebel Alliance on your vehicle. Prices range from $12.99 for a simple rear bumper decal, to $49.99 for a Rebel Alliance logo on your hood.
While these wraps may not make your car do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, they can add a dose of pop-culture coolness to your ride.
