Recently, the city of Odessa enacted a plan to grant plots of land along the coast to citizens for free, supporting Ukrainian legislation which stipulates that every citizen should have the right to own 1,000 square metres of land. Obviously, Darth Vader showed up to claim his rightful bit of earth. As Reuters reports, a man in full Darth Vader gear showed up at the mayor’s office this week, announcing “I am Darth Vader, the right hand of Emperor Palpatine… Knowing that many (local legislature) deputies and the mayor have switched to the dark side… I have come for a land plot… for my space cruiser.” He was allowed to submit his application, but only after removing his helmet and showing his passport. Apparently it will be considered with the other applications, though a spokeswoman for the mayor’s office assured reporters that “We are not on the dark side, we are light-side people.” Click through to watch the video, mostly notable for the concealed amusement of the guards, and let us know if you’d let Darth Vader dock his ship in your country.
