star wars darth vader SR Picks [Video]: Darth Vader Meets His Match

I love the classic Star Wars movies and I can’t see myself ever getting over that passion.

On that note, we have for you an awesome video spoof featuring Darth Vader in an alternate version of the events surrounding the Death Star and its inhabitants (pre-destruction) from the first Star Wars movie.

SCI FI Wire picked up on a tweet from actress Ming-Na who linked to the following video from two years ago. It’s based on a scene from A New Hope, re-created perfectly with one major exception…

… the addition of one new character, a love interest of our favorite Darth Vader.

Check it out:

Poor Darth Vader just wants to be loved…

Very high production quality! I’m impressed how they meshed the characters, costumes, style and dialogue perfectly with that of the original film. They could make an entire film like this.

What do you think of today’s SR Pick?

The original Star Wars hit theaters May 25, 1977 and it’s still awesome.

  1. That was awesome! You’re right, some money was definitely spent on that, great stuff. 😀


  2. I saw this one a long time ago, but it’s still pretty d@mn funny. hehe

    “I’m such an idiot.”

  3. Ha! “Heavy breating phone caller = Darth Vader”, complete with out of focus Whiskey Bottle in the background!


    A great piece, Rob! Thanks for finding that! I’m going to share that with a nice developing segment at our network.


  4. Amazing short film and genuine LOL moments!

  5. Great short! Loved it!

  6. HAHAHA that was great!

  7. Yah, I loved how she didn’t know who it was on the phone despite the heavy breathing, lol. She’s… such an idiot… lol.

  8. Ha Ha Ha!!! LOL!! That was hysterical! I especially like the fact that Vader keeps calling himself stupid (what guy doesn’t do that when he’s dating!). And who sleeps in their Vader suit?! Great video. Thanks!

  9. @Bob, he also washed his face with the mask still on, lol.

  10. I think I call myself an idiot more than I call anyone else an idiot combined when I’m dating or pursuing a girl, lol.

  11. Nice one, Rob. Saw this a year or so back – great to see it again. LOL moments all the way through; particularly like the helmet wax, and the “OW” as he walks through the holographic display. More genuine angst in less than seven minutes than the whole of episodes I-III put together!

  12. HA HA better sets than the prequels

  13. :-(

    Can’t pull it up at work. I guess I’ll wait till I get home.

  14. “i have to go to the toilet”

  15. “I think an olive went down the wrong way” Classic!!

  16. I remember that guy chris (lady-vader’s boyfriend), I know him from the original series of Little Britain, he’s in there frequently. Don’t know if he’s also in the Little Britain U.S. series. The fact that they got a guy like him in it, does say something about the people who made it. This ain’t no ‘friends in a basement’-level stuff 😀
