Jimmy Kimmel sent Hollywood Boulevard Chewbacca to "Wookie-py" L.A. and interview some of the folks camped out at Occupy Los Angeles at City Hall.

Chewbacca gently pokes fun at the protesters. One of them blows a horn that sounds like a Wookie roar, while another is wearing a pair of denim cut-offs that would make never-nude Tobias Funke proud. He seems to fit right in.
