Photographer Combines Love for Storm Troopers and Whiskey in Hilarious Series

These Storm Troopers might’ve finally found the droids they’re looking for—but instead of a couple chatty robots, they’ve got bottles of whiskey. A scotch lover who fittingly calls himself Scotch Trooper (aka @scotch_trooper) photographs the toy soldiers playfully interacting with the brown liquor in a myriad of ways: they unbox massive bottles, enjoy a nice pour, and do what they do best—guard the liquid with their guns drawn. Sometimes, Darth Vader even makes an appearance to express his admiration for the beverage. For those who fancy themselves Star Wars fans and whiskey enthusiasts, the images combine the best of both worlds by imagining a reality in which the two seemingly disparate subjects make perfect sense together.

Like a true connoisseur, the photographer makes sure all of the whiskey selections are carefully curated, and he writes reviews of each featured liquor on his blog. The addition of the Storm Troopers serves as clever marketing for his site and online shop that sells whiskey bottle lamps and other merchandise.
