Unicycling Darth Vader Plays Star Wars Theme On Flaming Bagpipes

If there’s anything I know about nerds, they like Star Wars and random fire/destruction. This guy knows his target audience and has created this.

Yes, I agree that title is pretty odd. I mean someone dressed as Darth Vader playing songs from Star Wars whilst cycling, that’s pretty normal. Adding fire into the mix takes it into the realm of weird badassery.

The man behind the mask is named Brian Kidd, otherwise known as The Unipiper. He’s known for playing themes from games and films, complete with costume and always on his unicycle. He’s apparently seen as a bit of a cult hero in his home of Portland, Oregon. He’s also developed quite a following online with his videos being viewed over 3.5 million times. I can only image that the decision to film with the slogan “Keep Portland Weird” was on purpose and not a happy accident.
