In a scene from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Director Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) visits Darth Vader’s home on Mustafar, the same lava planet where Anakin lost his limbs in a fight with Obi-Wan and became Darth Vader. Yes, Vader built his home on the planet where Obi-Wan abandoned him. He’s so emo, just like his grandson. Anyway, in that scene, Vader briefly force choked Krennic and advised him not to “choke on his aspirations.” And people have been making dad joke references about Vader ever since.
That’s right, Han Solo isn’t the only dad joke genius in this overdramatic, backwoods galaxy. So sit back, watch “Vader’s Got Jokes” above, and just… saber the moment.
The parody video, which should have been titled “Vader’s Got Dad Jokes,” was made by the Nerdist:
Darth Vader apparently isn’t just a lord of the Sith, but also jokes as he shows the Star Wars universe that it doesn’t know the power of the pun in this Nerdist Presents parody!
It’s probably for the best that this Vader opted for cheesy, forced dad puns instead of making the kind of fiendish jokes a Sith could choose to make…
