The YouTube mockumentary "BB-8: Behind the Circuits" finally explains the astromech droid's long-standing acting career in a classic Hollywood celebrity fashion.

Turns out, BB-8 led a life similar to many famous celebs. From his early acting in Shakespeare plays, to his typecasting as robots in Dr. Who, BB-8 apparently has been in the film industry for years, we just didn't know it. Of course, his story wouldn't be well-rounded (pun intended) without his struggles as an actor, which he's' fortunately worked to overcome.

Narrated by "Patrick Stewart" and featuring interviews with George Clooney, Billie Piper, and others, this hilarious spoof effectively mocks the world's newfound love for BB-8, as well as celebrity documentaries as a whole.
