We’re looking for the few, the proud, the folks who can roar like the coolest Wookiee around.

May 4, aka Star Wars Day, is coming up for Star Wars fans everywhere on Saturday, and in honor of that most loyal and furry of Millennium Falcon co-pilots, USA TODAY is looking for the best Chewbacca impressions readers can muster.

Use the Vine app on your smartphone to capture six seconds of a Chewbacca roar in the funniest — or at least most fun — place you can find (drive-through, school, bank, coffee shop, etc.), tweet them out using the hashtag #ChewieVine and we’ll feature the best videos on the website Saturday for May the 4th — the holiday inspired by “May the Force be with you.”

Need inspiration? Watch — or rewatch — the original trilogy of Star Wars films, featuring Peter Mayhew as Han Solo’s large, hairy sidekick from the planet Kashyyyk.
