There are many ways to celebrate your favorite outer space saga. Some people collect action figures and statues, others play the theme song on flaming bagpipes while balancing on a BB-8 droid. He also is wearing a BB-8 hat. Which kinda makes him look like an Imperial Officer. Different strokes for different folks.
Watch The Unipiper do his thing. You will believe he is the actual droid. Okay, maybe not, but it’s a fun video. He’s not nearly as agile as the droid, but that droid also doesn’t have to play flaming bagpipes while balancing on a human.
Now I get the name. The BB in BB-8 obviously stands for Balncing and Bagpipes.
