So in the latest Force For Change video, J.J. Abrams tries to get people to think of charity, but utterly fails by distracting everyone with the awesome visual of an extremely weathered starfighter that is not an X-wing. But hey, you could win a chance to be on set with that ship if you help out the charity. Anyways, check out the video and the uber cool starfighter.
