Silent Night by Chewbacca racks up over 5m views on YouTube

Chewbacca is no Bing Crosby, but his rendition of Silent Night is adding some Star Wars flair to the Christmas classic.

The site How It Should Have Ended re-mixed audio of Chewie's grunts and growls with clips from several Star Wars films to create a video that has been more than 5 million times on YouTube.

The parody song was first created as a joke in 1999 by web designer Scott Anderson, who writes on his website that he made it for a parody Christmas album, Christmas With Chewbacca.
