    YouTube stars Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens film an incredible stunt every Halloween. This year was no different – and involved Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and a Stormtrooper speeding through New York City on “Star Wars” speeder bikes.

Every Halloween, the YouTube stars Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens team up to film a raucous stunt in New York City.

In 2015, they kitted out an electric skateboard to look like a magic carpet and unleashed a real-life Aladdin in the city:

Last year, they weaved through traffic in full Silver Surfer body paint:

This year was no different, and it featured their most elaborate stunt yet.

Wellens and the model Carmella Rose dressed up as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and got on a bike while Neistat zipped after them dressed as a Stormtrooper.

The most impressive part of the group’s props, though, were the speeder bikes, which you may remember from “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi:”

The speeders in the viral video were formed from Super 73 electric motorbikes, according to a behind-the-scenes explainer the pair posted later.

Over three weeks, the electric bikes were fitted with a fiberglass shell and made to look exactly like the hovering, laser-shooting speeders from “Star Wars.”

The result was a Halloween-winning stunt and countless open-mouthed, flabbergasted expressions from passers-by in the Big Apple.
