Halloween is a peculiar holiday designed to bring out the best in peculiar people.

This year was no exception, and YouTube stars Casey Neistat and Jesse Wellens like to make the most of their opportunity to go crazy for a day.

This Wasn’t Their First Halloween Moment Of Madness

If you want to do something utterly amazing, you have to work up to it. The pair began their Halloween wackiness in 2015 when they created a “magic carpet” from an electric skateboard and rode that through the streets of New York.

Then they built on that in 2016 with another electric skateboard, this time done up as the surfboard from Fantastic Four’s Silver Surfer. To make that even better, they painted themselves in silver bodypaint for the day, too.

However, this was all a dry run for the incredible efforts they put into this year’s stunt.

This Year Was The Best Ever Halloween

For this year, they built two speeder bikes (as seen in the Star Wars movie Return of the Jedi) and then rode them through the streets of New York.

Jesse Wellens grabbed one bike and dressed as Luke Skywalker and his friend, Carmella Rose, was Princess Leia. Casey Neistat went full Stormtrooper and was the “chasing rider” from the movie.

How did they do it? They took two Super 73 electric motorbikes and spent three weeks fitting them with custom-made fiberglass shells that were built to emulate the famous speeder bikes. You can see exactly how that worked in the video below:

You may also be wondering whether this went down well with the citizens and law enforcement professionals of New York?

We are very pleased to report that it went without a hitch and people who caught the couple that day seem to have very much enjoyed it. But you don’t have to take our word for it, you can see for yourself here below:

But behind the scenes, it turns out, things didn’t necessarily play out exactly how some might imagine. Sometimes the mood was raunchy, and sometimes the mood got tense – in fact, not all of the actors really got along so well on set.
