The 8 Best ‘Vadering’ Pictures So Far (PHOTOS)

Hot on the heels of the pretty awesome “Hadoukening” craze, in which Japanese schoolgirls mimicked the effects of a fireball attack in Street Fighter, comes the even more awesome “Vadering” meme.

The concept of Vadering is simple: a pair of people recreate the scene in Star Wars when Darth Vader uses the dark side of the force to telepathically hoist an insubordinate by his throat.

The meme has been met with a heavy share of eye-rolling and dismissal, though. One photo in particular was sniffed out by eagle-eyed Redditors as a marketing ploy by Chick-Fil-A (see the first on our list below).

Whether a corporate ploy or not, though, the meme has inspired a slew of variations, some of which are pretty great. Those who don’t enjoy need not worry: it’ll all be wrapped up by about this time tomorrow.

Vadering requires a half-decent vertical leap and some good timing, but is otherwise straightforward. And the effect is more fun than blasting womp-rats with a T-16 on Tatooine.

Here are eight of our favorites so far:
