Never doubt the creativity of a man with flaming bagpipes. If there were ever a truer statement, then the world has not been made privy to it yet. Over in Portland, Oregon, there is a man is may be more of a myth to locals. The musical Youtuber goes by the name The Unipiper online, and his latest video has truly outdone itself.
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to hear Darth Vader play the bagpipes, then this man has made your wish come true. The talented and very balance musician recorded a short video of himself playing the Star Wars theme on his custom bagpipes while riding a unicycle in the snow. But, wait - there’s more.
Not only does The Unipiper play a thrilling rendition of the iconic franchise’s theme song, but he does it while dressed as Darth Vader. There’s no telling how the man was able to use the bagpipes’ mouth piece with a ventilated mask on, but it is probably better to not ask any questions.
And, to top it all off, the cheery unicyclist is also paying homage to the holidays in the video. The Unipiper can be seen wearing a festive Santa hat on top of his Darth Vader mask, and it is everything you could ever want from a viral video.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit US theaters December 16, 2016. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it's the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm and Disney, which take place outside the core "Skywalker Saga" of films noted by an Episode number. Rogue One tells the story of the small band of rebels that were tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star. The story spins directly off the opening crawl from the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that crawl, it read: "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."0comments
