Darth Vader has conversation with 12-year-old self

Parody video strikes while the lightsaber is hot

A great way to make your own viral video hit is to make a parody of another viral video. It's tricky, though, because your parody has to be really good. Fortunately, you can always just add Darth Vader to the video. And it helps to have the original video creator in your video, too.

Check out this video by "DrCoolSex", which parodies the original "A Conversation With My 12 Year Old Self" video, but with Darth Vader talking to his younger self via hologram (not VHS, sadly). With a cameo by Jeremiah himself.

I'm sure we'll start to see more "conversations" like this one, there's a bunch of other pop culture trends that video makers can capitalize on (Avengers, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, etc.).
