Watch Kids Sit on Darth Vader's Lap Instead of Santa's In This Hilarious Prank
If you're not familiar with Vat19, you should be. They're the purveyors of weird and unique gifts (everything from high-quality rubber band guns to giant Gummy Bears), but the internet knows them from their comedic viral videos, like their amazing techno music video for Das Boot, a beer glass shaped like a man's boot, featuring fictional German pop sensation Hans Gretel. If you're not humming "Da-da-das boot" by the end of the song, you're not human.

Now the twisted minds at Vat19 have made a new video showing a stream of kids walking into a Santa hut to sit on Kris Kringle's lap, only to find Darth Vader:



The kids' reactions range from terror to cheekiness, but Vader himself is absolutely priceless. His attempt to seduce the children to "the naughty side" is totally in-character, while his reaction to the girl's request for a "meow-meow cat" at 2:08 is enough to force a smile from even the most jaded Grinch. But once that severed hand pops up (it's apparently supposed to be Luke's), things get unexpectedly dark real fast. The kids are surprisingly cool with it, though—one girl even slaps Vader high-five with it.

The product Vat19 pushes at the end of the video, however, steals the spotlight: they're apparently selling those super-awesome Star Wars starfighter drones from Propel, including mini versions of the X-Wing and TIE Fighter. You can check them out (including videos of them flying around!) on the Vat19 site here. The only thing that could make them better would be if Vader himself was harassing carolers with a TIE drone, shouting "I HAVE YOU NOW!" from down the street.
