The Empire not cool with Star Wars Day

Video encourages people to not celebrate May 4th

IGN has posted a cute video giving a different perspective on "Star Wars Day", coming up this Saturday, May 4th ("May the Fourth Be With You", get it?).


While many true fans may be donning their jedi costumes or doing Star Wars-related activities, the folks who run the Empire (aka Darth Vader, the Emperor and others) want to point out that these celebrations are in support of "the rebels."

Funny take on this "holiday", which has become sort of the geekiest day of the year (next to Pi Day, of course).
