BLACKSBURG, VA. (KRON) — Darth Vader used the force to rid the world of litterbugs.
Drivers along a highway in Blacksburg, Virginia notified police of a man dressed up as the iconic “Star Wars” character cleaning and picking up trash.
Darth Vader, or better known as Henry Wakley takes care of the road through the adopt-a-highway program. He said that it is fun and people at times honk, wave and even stop to take pictures.
“I like to get out here and dress up because it makes people smile driving by,” Wakley said. “The lack of cleanliness disrupts me. We need to end this destructive behavior to restore the galaxy.”
Drivers at the time thought it was Batman cleaning, but the confusion was cleared when police arrived on the scene.
Darth Vader was using the force for good, not evil.
