Watch Darth Santa unleash the power of the Dark Side ... on Christmas

Don't let the festive Santa hat and candy-cane lightsaber fool you: Darth Vader is no jolly old Sith.

In fact, the former Anakin Skywalker despises Christmas even more than he dislikes sand, as he clearly demonstrates in this (anti-) holiday short, "Darth Santa."

Still, you have to imagine there's a twisted smile beneath that emotionless mask as the Dark Lord overturns Christmas trees, destroys presents and takes off with a child's pink bicycle. And lest you think the video's similarity to "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" means Vader's heart will grow three sizes, well ... just wait until he encounters that smiling youngling.
