Star Wars is a franchise that has spanned generations. With movies in the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, and 10s, people of every age are fans. This dad decided to prank his 2-year old son by waking him up – dressed as Darth Vader. I don’t know what dad thinks it’s ever a good day to wake up a sleeping child just as you’re getting some peace and quiet, but still.
Maybe it’s worth it for the joke and the banter and the viral YouTube video? But what about the years of therapy your kid will need? No, that doesn’t sound great. Especially as you’ll have to pay for it. This dad had his back covered, though, and made his wife sign an agreement that he was not liable for any future trauma.
Anyway, he decided this was a great plan, and set about getting a costume together. To be fair to him, it was a pretty good costume, very thorough. But he couldn’t have been ready for his son Sebastian’s reaction.
He woke up his Sebastian. His son immediately picked up the lightsabre he kept next to his bed to engage Darth Vader in a fight to the death! Sebastian is evidently one of those kids who is prepared for anything. Especially lightsabre battles. Why else would he keep it so handy?
However, soon Sebastian grew tired of fighting Darth Vader and picked up a book. He asked his arch enemy to read it to him in some kind of peaceful agreement. After all, the moral of Star Wars is to have compassion and balance. Darth Vader-dad capitulated and read him a story.
