Check out this Stormtrooper's sweet digs

YouTube moviemaker and rapper Scott Winn is at it again, this time taking us on a tour of a Stormtrooper's home, MTV "Cribs" style.

Based on their employer -- the evil Galactic Empire -- I would have thought Stormtroopers would have gotten pretty lousy pay. That, however, doesn't seem to be the case judging by the sweet digs belonging to a 'Trooper named TK-429 "aka Supernova."

In a recent video by Scott Winn, a YouTuber who previously created a most awesome Stormtrooper dance video (why yes it does include twerking!), Supernova takes a film crew through his home a la MTV's "Cribs" series.

Apparently, the home is as big as a Galactic starship because the infographic at the beginning boasts that it has 17 bedrooms, 81 baths, a gravity room, and pool. It also says that it's located in Coruscant Sector 21, but it looks a bit more like Southern California to me.

Past the front door, Supernova points out a painting that he claims is from Alderaan. He says that when the home of Princess Leia blew up "there was just sweet stuff floating all over space."

Next is a stop in the kitchen where we peek into a fridge filled with -- what else -- Wookie milk (who knew it was pink?) and an assurance that "Wookies make the sweetest milk. I mean, they hard to milk, but they yield the sweetest cream."

The tour then continues along a similarly fun vein. I won't spoil the rest of the surprises, but suffice it to say that a lot of old friends seem to like to chill at Supernova's place -- including one very unwelcome guest.

Check it out below, and if you want to go deeper into the mad world of Winn, be sure to watch the "making of" video here.
