So, um… It appears that “Hot Guys Holding BB-8” is a trend just now and it’s possibly one of the most bizarre things you’ll ever see (certainly one of the strangest things that I’ve seen in a long time).
EW’s Marc Snetiker has created a page on Tumbler that he’s entitled “A poorly Photoshopped story of boy meets droid“. His page is dedicated to edited images of celebrities holding the droid BB-8.
It’s a weird bit of fun and you can find some of his images below:

Isn’t it marvelous how peculiar the internet can be? I for one have no burning desire to look at pictures of half naked men holding a bobulous droids from Star Wars. However, it’s a wonderful reminder that someone like Marc Snetiker is around to poke fun at the entertainment industry.
Yet, I don’t expect that it will be long until celebrities begin to scuttle forward to cash in on the trend that he’s created. A never-ending series “authentic” selfies on Instagram, each featuring them holding the loveable droid.
