A picture of the Beer Droid

The Beer Droid (a term in the Star Wars franchise for self-aware robots) is a minor character who appeared in the Star Wars Games episode. He is a droid whose primary function was to dispense bottles of beer for the Nerd to drink, but his aim was fairly poor, as he hit the Nerd in the face with a beer bottle. Sometimes the beer would spill out of the bottle onto the Nerd. He appears accompanied with an 8-bit version of the "Cantina Song" from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope playing in the background. The actual model is a vacuum cleaner. When it moves around, it's pulled by an invisible string. The head movement is stop motion mixed in with the live action segments with the Nerd. The inspiration for the Droid shooting beer was R2-D2 shooting out a lightsaber for Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi. The Beer Droid was sold as an auction for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
