Darth Vader caused controversy when he turned up at 1 Infinite Loop to take a selfie. When welcomed by Apple staff he merely stated:
“You may dispense with the pleasantries, commander. I am here to put you back on schedule”
Clearly referring to the fact that Apple has not produced a game changing product since Steve Jobs death on October 5th 2011. He was holding the new iPad Air to take his selfie, but was clearly dismissive about Apple’s claim on the power of lightness of their new iPad,
“The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the force”
After the selfie was uploaded to Instagram he turned to leave, a journalist stopped to ask him if he was not concerned about his image as the dark lord suffering as a result of this populist move. Breathing more heavily than usual, he turned, grabbed the journalist by his legs and said:
“You underestimate the power of the dark side and no, I am not your father”
The selfie uploaded to Instagram was amongst #tophits for a number of days. There is talk of R2D2 going to the Microsoft Campus and posing for an unselfie instead before joining Photoplay.
