Star Wars Day in the WH – level 3

Star Wars Day in the WH – level 3

12-05-2016 15:00

A storm trooper dance party in the White House. US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle had some fun celebrating Star Wars Day with R2-D2 and some storm troopers.

May 4th is referred to as Star Wars Day because of the saying, "May the 4th be with you". People across the globe celebrated the event on social media, sharing videos and images from the hugely popular film series, but the late entry from the Obamas may perhaps be the most lasting image from this year's celebrations.

“Come on storm trooper! Come on, baby!”

Difficult words: 4th (“fourth” sounds like “force” – this is a pun, a joke), hugely (very), entry (record, video).
