I find his lack of faith…disturbing.
Bosch's Poodle says
There’s a guy in there, toward the end, who looks a lot like you, PZ.
Lee Picton says
PZ, there was a guy in that like that looked just like you. Look at it again.
@ Bosch’s Poodle:
I noticed that too. How creepy…
I noticed PZ in there too. Nice collar!
And, as to Darth Vader: WIN!
The funny thing is, according to the comments on youtube at least half of the Icelandic people have been there when it happened…
But those priests really took it with grace, even if Darth Vader has been removed from the procession after the video.
Tor Erling says
@ #1 That really made my day :)
Ah, I needed that, thanks PZ.
No biggie – we have ceremonies like that for real over here…
PZ is that you at 20 seconds?
Sven DiMilo says
“I am your father, Luke”
“What? No, I’m Father Luke!”
Reminds me of the video you posted a few months back: “A New Pope”.
Let me guess, at a university graduation procession of the professors in their academic regalia (which looks just as stupid), it is Yoda who follows them.
It’s very giggle worthy.
Emmet Caulfield says
You have a lot of Icelandic readers, PZ. Every Icelandic atheist I know seems to know of your site, if not read it regularly. Oh and Icelandic creationists also seem to be well aware of you!
We seldom seem to comment though…
Keep up the good work!
Colin J says
Belly laugh at work. Awesome!
Similarly – King Abdullah of the Imperial Empire visits London
Am I the only one wondering what the context was? Were they doing a big ceremony, picking up their paychecks or is this just what they look like going to work in the morning?
Hmmm. I like the paycheck idea, myself. “Yeah, payday!” “Whose turn is it to wear the Darth Vader costume?” “Yours!” “Aw, man.”
haha, that was hilarious. Thanks for the ab workout! #12 and #21, you have definitely added to the hilariousness for me. Nicely done.
Brad D says
“If you only knew the power of myth!”
Wow, that was ballsy. And hilarious.
I mustn’t laugh. They look every bit as silly down here (that’s what they get for sticking to 17th century wardrobe). In fact I was sure this was Danish from the preview – of course Iceland was under Danish rule till the War when they got fed up.
How religious is Iceland by the way? I know the Faroes are disturbingly backwards. There was some pretty nasty anti-gay legislation passed recently.
Cap'n Phealy says
He’s obviously there showing fealty to Emperor Papaltine…
“Imperial Empire”? Is that like a Democratic Democracy?
BobbyEarle at #1 – well played!
It is nice that they wear those big white collars so that the executioner knows exactly where to take off their heads!
Who would have ever thought Darth Vader would play the plucky comic sidekick?
Richard Simons says
No, it’s so that they look like their head is already on a plate.
Is Darth Vader with a giant cattle prod the Vatican’s newest method of dealing with molesting priests?
Gunnar J Briem says
Sili asked how religious Iceland is. We’re in pretty good shape I think.
In any case, Iceland has been measured to have the highest rate of evolution supporters worldwide.
Óli Gneisti says
A friend of mine and a member of the atheist/skeptic group Vantrú (disbelief) is playing the part of Vader. I stood by watching (or rather laughing hysterically). That was a fun day.
Atheist Chaplain says
After the complete crap week I have had, his was a much needed laugh out loud moment for me, Thanks PZ :-)

Glad to see you post this, PZ. I still can’t help but chuckle when I watch it :)
Apostate Lois says
I don’t understand why they don’t feel silly in those foofy collars and silly robes. The guy in the Vader costume is the most dignified of the bunch! Although I do rather fancy that cream-colored robe with the fancy embroidery….
