‘Star Wars’ Director J.J. Abrams Takes Twizzler Challenge With Chewbacca for Jimmy Kimmel (Video)

The filmmaker behind “The Force Awakens” also got a few stray wookie hairs in his mouth

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams and Chewbacca accepted the Twizzler Challenge from Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday.

The challenge, in which two people eat a Twizzler from either end “Lady and the Tramp” style, is meant to promote autism awareness month.

The filmmaker and wookie completed the challenge at ease, with the exception of a few stray hairs landing in Abrams’ mouth. So who’s next?

Abrams challenged Jennifer Anniston to perform the act with Guillermo, Kimmel’s sidekick.

Kimmel became an instant fan of the challenge when he got singer Rihanna to perform it with him on the air. No doubt it was payback for her April Fool’s Day prank on him. Other celebs who have taken the challenge include Lena Dunham, Meredith Vieira, and Matt Lauer.
