(Warning! Big SPOILERS ahead!) Star Wars: The Force Awakens is heading into its fifth week of release, and it stands the possibility of losing it's #1 position on the box office charts for the first time since it opened in December. The sequel is the biggest domestic movie of all time, and it would be easy to assume that everyone who wanted to see the movie has. So what is the moratorium on spoilers? Is five weeks enough time for us to all talk about it openly? Even though some fans in smaller towns haven't seen the movie yet? Well, one guy thinks it's finally okay to lay everything out on the table, and he's doing it in the most obnoxious way possible.
This is right up there with the guy who spray painted 'The dog dies!' On Marley & Me billboards. It's safe to say this guy might be the biggest douche bag of all time. He's gone and gotten himself an alphabet letter sticker set so he can spell out possibly Star Wars: The Force Awakens' biggest spoiler on the back of his car: 'Han Solo Dies in The Force Awakens.' That's beyond rude, right?
On one level it's funny. Perhaps we're all taking this whole Star Wars spoiler thing a little too seriously. On the other hand, he's clearly ruining the sequel's most emotional, and pivotal scene for everyone who comes in contact with his car. Mind you, he's on the freeway, which means hundreds of people are reading this at any given time. And even after seeing the movie, some people find this one moment hard to believe.
While this is a giant dickhead movie, it does open up the discussion, 'When is it okay to spoil the spoilers?' Upon that first viewing, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is full of them. And let's not forget, the movie came out during the holidays, when some people have bigger obligations than making it to the theater in time not to be spoiled. Most people who care about these spoilers already know them. And have probably discussed them at length, top volume, in coffee shops across America. Saying 'Han Solo Dies' at the top of your lungs in a Waffle House is the equivalent of this guy's car advertisement. But granted, it affects less people in a more confined space.
Another question we have to ask ourselves is, 'Why would this guy do such a think in the first place?' It obviously cost money to make such a nice looking sign. Did someone ruin the movie for him, now he's taking it out on other people? Does he hate what spoiler culture has become, and how it's held sway over the American public? Who knows what is wrong with this guy? Take a look as he takes spoilers to new heights. What do you think about this?
