According to the YouTube description, some guys in a bachelor party were messing with him long before the fight started. Can’t we all just get along?

Darth Vader Runs for President of Ukraine

Amidst problems in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Internet Party seems to be having a bit of fun. They’ve selected Darth Vader as their official candidate in Ukraine’s May 25th presidential election. The party is known for its “theatrical public stunts,” but they’ve paid the $225,000 registration fee, and our favorite dark lord is a legitimate candidate.

Encased in black armour, with a black mask and cape, the party’s “Darth Vader” has been involved in several political actions in the country. In November 2013 he was carried by his Stormtroopers — the elite soldiers of the fictional galactic empire — to Odessa city hall where he declared himself mayor. According to local media reports he has also reportedly demanded a plot of land in the southwestern city to park his space ship.

“I alone can make an empire out of a republic, to restore former glory, to return lost territories and pride for this country,” Vader said in a party statement.

Man Waits for iPhone 6 in Cardboard Costume

A Japanese blogger and iPhone fan known as Yoopy was recently spotted in costume outside an Apple store. Wearing a cardboard iPhone costume, Yoopy apparently decided he would be first in line for the iPhone 6. You have to admire his dedication!

Unfortunately for Yoopy, there hasn’t been any announcement for the iPhone 6 release date. So after sitting outside the store for a few hours, Yoopy decided to call it quits. But rest assured, he’ll be back! Good luck, Sir Yoopy.

After entering the store and approaching an Apple employee about info on the next iPhone, and getting no such info, Yoppy decided to pack it in for now.

His friends wore impressive costumes as well. Though I can’t help but notice that it looks like Darth Vader is wearing a big plastic diaper. 🙂

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Batkid’s Wonderful Super Day

I’m sure most of you have heard about Batkid, and his big day last Friday afternoon. He saved the city of San Francisco!

This was truly one of the best things I’ve ever seen. 5-year-old Miles is battling Leukemia, and his one wish was to be Batman for a day. The entire city pitched in to help the Make-a-Wish Foundation give Miles a dream come true. So touching and incredible. Thanks for saving the day, Batkid! You are everyone’s hero.

Miss Universe 2013: Miss USA in a Transformers Costume

What in the world? Yes, this is Miss USA Erin Brady, wearing an impressive Optimus Prime Transformers costume. She’s competing in the Miss Universe 2013 pageant, and wearing a costume that represents her country. Why didn’t anyone tell her that Transformers are from Japan?

Her costume, created by Victoria’s Secret costume designer Martin Izquierdo, is a Transformer of all things. Brady looks like a strange version of Optimus Prime from the Michael Bay film series. Brady addressed the costume on her Instagram, writing, “Nothing screams national costume like the first Miss USA transformer. Embracing powerful women to a transforming country that’s made up of so much. That’s what Miss USA means to me.”
