Clint Case from Fullerton in California posted the 40 second video of his son wearing a Star Wars inspired costume - at the time of publishing this article the video, which is called ‘A Boy and his Tauntaun’ had been viewed more than 440,000 times.

The costume is a tribute to the opening scene of ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ when characters Luke Skywalker and Han Solo use the fictional creatures called Tauntauns to navigate their way around a snow covered planet called Hoth.

The costume is completely handmade and Mr. Case’s son can be seen plodding up and down inside what appears to be a kitchen.

A female voice can also be heard telling the little boy to “make your Tauntaun go fast” to which Mr. Case asks his son “is your Tauntaun drunk?”.
