While we're awaiting the release of the next installment of Star Wars in December, we have something to tide us over in the meantime. There's a neat video out that shows Imperial Forces invading Los Angeles and blasting our landmarks.

Visual artist Kaipo Jones dropped his "Star Wars: Invasion Los Angeles" YouTube video today, and it's full of TIE Fighters, AT-ATs and AT-STs wreaking havoc on the Queen Mary, Santa Monica Pier and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. There's an especially great blow-up scene at the 1:05-minute mark that we enjoyed. Even an Imperial Shuttle, Star Destroyer and the second Death Star make appearances in this clip.

Jones also added 25 Easter eggs throughout his video, so see if you can spot them all. They include C-3PO and R2-D2, Disney characters and even Where's Waldo hidden in different parts of this dark Los Angeles world he's created. Jones talks about the Easter eggs you can find in the video below:
