Video - Father and son created viral gallery of toy Stormtroopers using the Force to assemble a Christmas tree, viewed more than a million times

Creative Phil and Kyle Shearrer (corr) spent about two hours creating the brilliant short film, by shooting the iconic Star Wars baddies building a fake Christmas tree.

The series of images shows the dozy Galactic Empire troops mucking about while putting up the massive tree, including having a cigarette break and even a snooze. One of the daft troopers is seen ‘using the fork’ on a plug socket, instead of The Force, but the four-inch-tall team eventually failed to get the top on the tree – so got help from Darth Vader.
