Star Wars’ Mark Hamill and Star Trek’s Sir Patrick Stewart row over tomatoes in UberEats ad
Star Wars legend Mark Hamill has battled it out with Star Trek icon Sir Patrick Stewart over how to pronounce the word ‘tomatoes’ in the new UberEats advert.
Yes, Luke Skywalker has come face to face with Captain Picard but not for the fight we were quite expecting.
In a short clip, the duo can be seen rowing over the age-old debate, which even made it into the 1961 Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong duet.
Do you say tom-ay-toes, like Hamill? Or tom-are-toes like Sir Patrick?
We don’t actually believe there’s a correct way, but it sure makes for some good viewing.
Let’s not get them started on scones.
Sharing a teaser for the clip, Hamill wrote on Twitter: ‘So @SirPatStew and I finally did it. Our @UberEats #ad is out tomorrow. Here’s something while you wait.’
Right on cue, fans flocked to the comments where they cheered on the pair for finally uniting on screen.
‘Heroes of legacy franchises on screen together at last, the power, courageousness, and optimism of Luke and the intelligence, integrity, and understanding of Captain Picard,’ one wrote. ‘I don’t think there would be a challenge they couldn’t overcome when joining forces!!!’
Someone else was just as excited, adding: ‘This is so friggin epic I can’t stand it haha! You both are awesome but I’d have to go w/ Mark on this one [sic]’
While another teamed with Sir Patrick: ‘Mark as much as I love you, as a British gentlemen I must say Sir Patrick Stewart is correct in the pronunciation sir. However, I will say Lightsaber > Phasers [sic]’
What have they started?
Sir Patrick also shared the clip alongside a tomato emoji, adding: ‘Mr. @HamillHimself and I meet in an @ubereats #ad. It’s out tomorrow. Here’s a first look.’
We’re waiting with baited breath for the full instalment, where they’ll hopefully settle the debate once and for all.
