A viral Christmas video shows Chewbacca performing “Silent Night” in Shyriiwook, the language of the Wookie. The clip was made using audio and video snippets from the Star Wars movies.
In fact the video was originally compiled in 1999 by web developer Scott Andersen. “Once I had my sound clips, I determined the pitch of each one and made sure I had all of the notes I needed for ‘Silent Night.’ I was missing a few, so I had to pitch shift them in my audio editing software,” he said.
“My coworkers all got a good chuckle out of ‘Christmas with Chewbacca’ and for the next couple of years as December approached we’d share the link around the office again, and I pretty much thought that was the end of it,” he added. However, this year the song ended up being listened by millions of people.
