Dumped Man Gets Public To Call His Ex-Girlfriend Impersonating Chewbacca

Dumped Man Gets Public To Call His Ex-Girlfriend Impersonating Chewbacca

This is a wookie mistake

A woman from Queensland has been receiving a load of nuisance phone calls after her ex-boyfriend plastered posters of her around town asking people to call the number and impersonate Star Wars character Chewbacca.

Everyone has their own way of dealing with the breakdown of a relationship, but this is certainly a new one.

It's worth pointing out that the man that 29-year-old Jessica, from Cairns, broke up with had been found to be messaging other women when she saw his Facebook account, so he's probably a bit of a prat.

Oh, he also dumped a car with no wheels on her driveway to block her in, which is massively out of order. She called the police on that occasion to remove it.

Anyway, the strangest thing that this obviously bizarre man did was advertise her phone number on leaflets boasting a A$100 prize for the best Chewbacca impression.


That was two weeks ago, and there have been plenty of 'applicants' since then.

Luckily, Jessica is made of fairly stern stuff and has managed to see the funny side of this strange attempt to harass her.

She told 9News: "I'm getting phone calls at really strange hours of the night about one o'clock to about four o'clock, aye. I thought it was quite funny actually, I thought it was a good joke."

Their three-year relationship came to an end when Jessica logged into the man's Facebook account to discover that he'd been sending inappropriate messages to other blokes whilst he was supposed to be with her.

In response, he posted bills around town advertising a 'Chewbacca roar contest' with a prize for the best impression.

Jessica has asked anyone who sees the posters to pull them down, but if they feel like making an entry, that's fine too.

She continued: "Just pull it (the posters) down please and yeah, have a laugh for me and if you want to make a phone call, go for it. I don't mind, bring it on!"


It's taken her a while to adopt this stance, however. She admitted that at the beginning the calls were distressing for her and her children - some of them were taking place in the middle of the night, waking up her kids.

Jessica told Cairns Post: "Someone called and said they thought it might have been done as a joke because they watched (a man) put up the poster.

"It hurts my feelings.

"I thought when we first met he was mature, but it just goes to show having a job doesn't mean you're mature."

As for the car, which he left outside her house with no wheels so she couldn't move it, she explained: "The police got in contact with me and finally they're going to do something about it."
