The Stormtrooper with poor height perception

Yep, we all know and kind of love this guy. We bet you’ve at least once sat down to watch ‘A New Hope’ and pointed this clanger out to your friends/family/pets. It’s a classic and fully unintended moment in the legendary original Holy Trinity of Star Wars movies.
