The Ukrainian Internet Party is pushing for reform in the upcoming parliamentary elections, and who better than the Dark Lord of The Sith, Darth Vader, from Star Wars to get things done!
The former Jedi and evil henchmen for the Galactic Empire (or at least someone dressed like him) is running in the upcoming parliamentary elections there as a legitimate candidate. Vader even has an ad campaign making rounds on the internet this week featuring beautiful fields (not unlike Naboo), a horse, and even a traditional Russian instrument being played by Lord Vader to a familiar stirring tune.
Check out the ad campaign videos here below.
While he might not have a dedicated battalion like the 501st at his disposal, it appears that his candidacy is indeed being taken seriously in that country. The elections for parliament are October 26th in Kiev.
This isn’t the first time Vader or characters from Star Wars have run for office in that country either. Apparently, Stepan Chubakka AKA Chewbacca has also put his name in the hat for political office. I’d like to think I speak on behalf of geeks across the Internet in wishing the Dark Lord the best of luck…otherwise, he might do that force choke thing in retaliation.
