Darth Vader Picking Up Roadside Trash On The Highway He Adopted

September 19, 2016


Henry Wakley of Blacksburg, Virginia (go Hokies!) dresses as Darth Vader and picks up trash along the mile and a half of Route 460 he adopted through the Adopt-A-Highway program. Henry adopted the highway in the name of Darth Vader (pics of his signs after the jump) and can be seen roadside with his lightsaber trash-picker gathering rubbish thrown out by anti-earth rebels.

"I like to get out here and dress up because it makes people smile driving by," Wakey said."The lack of cleanliness disrupts me."

Throughout the day, many drivers honked, waved or even stopped by to take a picture.He said it's a fun way to bring awareness to the environment.

"We need to end this destructive behavior to restore the galaxy," Wakley said.

He said someone alerted police that Batman was walking along the highway, but police quickly cleared up the confusion that it was actually Darth Vader cleaning up, using the Force for good, not evil.

Ahahahhahah, somebody thought he was Batman. That's the exact kind of person you want as an eyewitness when you commit a crime. It was, uh....that guy! "Sir that's a cutout of McGruff the Crime Dog." Oh yeah that's him alright, I'd bet my life on it.

Keep going for a couple shots of Darth Vader's highway signs.



Thanks to all my Virginia Tech friends for flooding my Facebook with this story.

    Great. Adopt a HIGHWAY but leave your actual children to your former best friend's devices... "Father of the Year" over here!

    Hopefully there's a Driver out there who will finish what he started...

    That high vis vest is killing his Darthness.

    This was just a publicity move after the ruling that the standard Imperial procedure of dumping their garbage before getting on the freeway was actually littering and had a negative impact on the environment.

    You don't know the power of the Road Side! Join me and together we can rule the turnpike as father and son.

  • Meh

    This is why even Darth Vader can be a better politician than the ones we have now. I say DV4potus
