Tim McGraw Shares Special Christmas Memories … With Yoda
Tim McGraw is not only getting into the Christmas spirit, he’s apparently also pretty excited about the new Stars Wars movie.
The country superstar posted a very unique interview to Facebook in which he shares some fond memories of Christmases past, and his interviewer is none other than Yoda, the diminutive, wizened sage who instructed Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force. In fact, the Force is apparently so strong with Yoda that he isn’t even obliged to voice his questions aloud, instead appearing to communicate with McGraw telepathically in the clip above.
McGraw must have been putting all of his acting experience to use just to keep from bursting out laughing in the video, sharing some very sweet Christmas memories with a completely straight face despite the fact that he is fielding questions from a light-up Yoda who is solemnly clutching a candy cane, with a light saber propped nearby. The “Top of the World” singer relates stories about some of his favorite gifts, and he also shares how his mother would make Christmas special despite not having much to work with when he was young.
“We didn’t have a lot of money, but what Mom would do, she would wrap everything,” he recalls. “So we would have, like, 20 presents under the tree, but if we had a pair of socks, each sock would be wrapped. I always felt like Mom did pretty well.”
At the end of the interview — which is actually very sweet — McGraw, ever the gentleman, politely thanks his interviewer by saying, “Thank you, Yoda. May the Force be with you. Merry Christmas.”
He posted to clip to Facebook with the caption, “Thanx Yoda for taking some time to sit down and ask me some questions about the holidays. Starwars #TheForceAwakens.” Check it out above.
