International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day

Filmmaker celebrates start of ITLJJBD season with Jar Jar related vanity plate

Now that August is here, the International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day season is in full swing! As we mentioned last week, that means lots of families around the world are delighting in the joys of Jar Jar in a Car. But others are celebrating the Gunganiest time of the year in other ways!

One Jar Jar superfan, filmmaker J.C. Reifenberg, ushered in International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day month in a truly awesome way, by acquiring vanity plates which have the Gungan word “Bombad” on them. Bombad, which means great or awesome in Gunganese, is definitely the most appropriate word to describe the act of getting these custom plates. Reifenberg, owner of the popular Scum and Villainy Cantina in L.A., has been a longtime fan of Jar Jar Binks and was one of the earliest supporters of the International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day holiday movement.

J.C. had previously expressed admiration of another individual who was driving around town with plates that said “Jar Jar” on them, so his decision to get “Bombad” plates is not a complete shock, but we’d like to congratulate him on this awesome decision and applaud his enthusiasm for Jar Jar Binks as well as ITLJJBD! If you happen to spot him while you’re out and about, be sure to give him a friendly wave and let him know that you’re a Jar Jar fan as well.

While we don’t expect everyone to get Jar Jar or Gungan related vanity plates to celebrate the International Talk Like Jar Jar Day season, there are many other things you can do to express your Jar Jar love.

These are just a few things I can think of, off the top of my head, for you to show your excitement for ITLJJBD:

  • Build a life sized statue of Jar Jar out of Legos
  • Paint a picture of Jar Jar on the hood of your car
  • Write a top 10 ten song about International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day
  • Get a Jar Jar Binks face tattoo
  • Wear only Jar Jar Binks emblazoned clothing until ITLJJBD arrives

Of course there are many other ways for you to show your enthusiasm for ITLJJBD, so whatever it is you’re doing in anticipation of August 19th, be sure to let us know, and we’ll share it with the rest of the world.
