J.J. Abrams Gets Hit by a Salmon Fish on The Force Awakens Set!

JJ Abrams & ArtooYes, we know how this sounds, but it’s just too hilarious to pass. There is a cannon that shoots salmon over dams. John Oliver from Last Week Tonight has more on the story. Check it out…



Even J.J. Abrams directing R2-D2 on The Force Awakens set was not spared. 🙂


(3:30 min.)




Thanks to Finn for the heads up!

    don’t give a sh*t about the salmon, but if this leads us to reveal a wall of the set, that’s ok.

    J.J. absolutely needs to have a cameo in this trilogy.

    Admiral Akbar is not amused

    I hate that show! Britain has enough of it’s own problems, we don’t need some smug Brit complaining about American politics!

    • November 10, 2014 at 4:10 pm

      Dude shut up

    • November 10, 2014 at 4:15 pm

      Where’s the dislike button?

      I’m sure Jon doesn’t like many of the problems in British politics too.

      • November 10, 2014 at 4:51 pm

        LOVE John’s show!

      • November 10, 2014 at 5:14 pm

        Than maybe he should do a show about Britain’s Politics…

        • November 10, 2014 at 6:46 pm

          He’s not smug… He’s married to a U.S. army vet & is pretty damn funny.

        • November 10, 2014 at 8:06 pm

          he was aregular on stuff like the news quiz and the now show on bbc radio 4 and mock the week on bbc tv.

    That was for Star Trek!

    Hi there I’m from Ireland and I think JJ has been reading some of our Irish folklore when he was over at skelleg michael. Finn macool and the salmon of knowlidge is one of our famous Irish stories, maybe JJ was reading that story to R2. Maybe JJ was running past some of the titles to R2 and on of the was episode7 the Salmon rises

    Last Week w/ John Oliver and Star Wars: It’s about time two of my favorite things crossed paths! 😀

  • November 10, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    Bravo to all those famous people who were silly for our entertainment.

  • November 10, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    At least it wasn’t a shoe.

  • November 10, 2014 at 4:53 pm

    Quit your bitchin’, Abrams! You said you wanted to emphasize practical effects!

    *Smacks him with another salmon.*

    Was that REAL enough for ya? 😉

    It could be that they released concept art from earlier drafts of the script, perhaps even Arndt’s. That’d be a great way for them to keep the anxious fans occupied while the real material remains secured in secrecy. My guess is that they’ve had several artists working on concepts from the very beginning of the film’s conception and it’s that art they’ve chosen to leak as a diversion. It’s evident in the countless differences between McQuarrie’s work and the final products seen in the OT. Brilliant!

    Man as happy as I am to see JJ clips… He really has the cheesiest sense of humor. I bet he embarrasses his kids a lot (not like on a Rick Steves level… but you know what I mean probably).

    So anyone go to see interstellar? Man that was a killer flick.

    This is a fishy story.

      Good call, very good pic, you can see that the angular panels are exactly the same. Especially above the red ports in the pic you posted.

  • November 10, 2014 at 10:06 pm

    LOL! I can’t believe they included Jimmy Fallon (Thank you, spatulas…), and poor Artoo. 🙂

    It’s a trout!

  • November 12, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    Anyone sticked through to the end? 🙂 Some more SW-stuff

  • November 26, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    I cast Summon Bigger fish!
