UK Weather Forecaster Packs 12 Star Wars Puns Into 40-Second Broadcast

December 17, 2015


This is a video of UK Channel 5 weather forecaster Sian Welby presenting a short 40-second weather report in which she manages to packs twelve different Star Wars puns. On average, that's a Star Wars pun ever 3.33 (repeating of course) seconds. Good work, Sian. And for the record, no, she doesn't want to marry you. Or at least not me anyway, and I told her I was a wealthy land baron who loves Star Wars and is fascinated by the weather.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Brawn, who has always dreamed of being a weatherman but is too afraid that if part of you disappears on green-screen it disappears in real life too.

  • Peter Schmidt

    Was that.... Was that a leeroy jenkins reference?

  • Steamboat

    The concept was nothing special, but the forecaster nailed it.

  • cabbo

    Lol, channel 5. They're trying.

  • Hazakabammer

    As a Brit, ha, channel 5. As the founder of a Technologist sect, ha, television.

  • Meh

    She looks good, but this isn't even worth watching.

  • DavidWinters

    Judging by your comments, you're not worth listening to.

  • Meh

    Then why do you? Dipshit much?

  • GrueHunter

    Your mum's basement much?

    (Actually, scratch the basement.)

    (Also, we know you just write 'MUM' on your hand.)

  • Meh

    Wow, that's the best comeback you could come up with?

    Pretty sad kiddo. You'd be lucky if someone wasted his basement on someone like you.

  • GrueHunter

    So, your best comeback was talking about my comeback? Come back on Thursday - that's when they do amateur hour.

  • He IS pretty Meh...

    1) Leia of clouds*
    2) Luke further west
    3) if your Wookie.
    4) Force is strong
    5) weather strikes back
    6) don't be a trooper
    7) forced to awaken
    8) dark side
    9) far, far away
    10) a new hope
    *I'll defer to british listeners here who claim she said Leia ( article)

  • Hazakabammer

    Actually, she said "Luke Father West" - it was a double pun, so it's two.

  • Foldedpencil

    Wow, listened twice and only counted 9

  • Carl

    I got 10: Leia (layer, clever word play), Luke, Wookie, force is strong, strikes back, trooper, forced to awaken, dark side, far far away, a new hope

  • Carl

    "Light breeze" - light side of the force, that's 11.

  • Carl

    And got 12: "Luke father" - double reference, Luke and Luke's father. Damn, she's GOOD.

  • Foldedpencil

    Thanks! Those were exactly the ones I was missing!
