Chad Vader: Brilliant Incompetence

What would you do if you have a complete Darth Vader costume, a camera, and (apparently) unlimited access to a grocery store? Make popular YouTube videos about a loser in a Vader costume who works in a grocery store? Sorry! Somebody already beat you to it! The videos in the Chad Vader series are hilarious. Chad does, indeed, have force powers but he uses them in lame attempts to war with his arch-nemesis, Clint; impress Clarissa, the checkout girl who detests him;make the store "fully operational;" and to create a more powerful check-out laser.

The series is best when it is poking fun of the ridiculousness of its own concept. Chad hums to the tune of Darth Vader's theme song, "I have a date, Chad has a date." Chad is thwarted from striking down Clint by a banana peel. Chad calls the store manager, "master."

It is amazing the effort the people put into their YouTube videos for absolutely no pay or rewards of any kind except recognition from fans. The folks who did the Chad Vader series deserve your recognition so check them out.

  1. Chad Vader also featured in some Star Wars Rifftrax, working nicely with the boys from MST3k.
