I was extremely honored to be able to take R2 to the White House premiere of The Force Awakens. The premiere was being held for Gold Star families (families that lost a parent in war). As a retired veteran I was so honored to attend. We also took shots of R2 around the White House.
The second best part was after the event, I had loaded ‘Uptown Funk’ on R2 in case we met the First Lady as she said it was her favorite song. We were all alone in the Diplomatic Reception room with just the President, First Lady and obviously secret service. So I decided to play the song, and the First Lady said ‘That’s my favorite song, how did you now?’ and proceed to dance along with the President and the First Order troops there for the premiere. Priceless event!
UPDATE: The White House posted part of the dancing video on Youtube on May 4th, 2016
