Chad Vader is a fan film series by Blame Society Productions that has gained popularity on the Internet, particularly through viewings on YouTube. The first episode has been viewed over two million times. A portion of the episode IV video was aired on Good Morning America on October 12, 2006. As of October 13, 2006, there are four episodes, each between five and six minutes long, written and directed by Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda.
The storyline centers around Chad Vader, the less-famous brother of Darth Vader, who works (at first) as a day-shift manager at a supermarket named Empire Market. It presents Chad's clashes with customers and other employees, especially Clint, the night-shift manager. Chad's infatuation with Clarissa, one of the grocery store's check-out girls, is a plot point as well. Chad makes frequent references to dialogue and concepts from the Star Wars films in the context of a modern-day grocery store.
Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
Eventually, after upsetting his boss, Chad is removed from the Day Shift Manager Position and is placed in the Night Shift Manager position. Disillusioned with the night shift, Chad demands to have his day shift position back. When his boss refuses to give Chad back the position in Episode IV, Chad quits.
