Darth Vader Uses The Force (& An Electric Guitar) To Spread Christmas Cheer

And Now For Something Completely Different

Here’s something you certainly don’t see every day. Darth Vader leading a flash mob Christmas choir. The video is described thusly: “Algonquin College. Exam week can be stressful on students. Inspired by the Christmas Food Court Flash Mob, Hallelujah Chorus, the Television Broadcasting students at Algonquin College wanted to showcase the new Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence by lightening the mood with the help of the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir and Darth Vader.”

My favorite part? Watching people who don’t appear to be part of the flash mob, look so scared they might get up and start singing anyway because well, Darth Vader. “YOU WILL JOIN THE GALACTIC EMPIRE CHOIR. Or else.”
