"Star Wars" villain Darth Vader tries to get Fort Worth police job in new recruiting video

FORT WORTH, TX (KTRK) -- The Fort Worth Police Department is using "The Force" in effort to recruit new officers.

But "The Force" didn't work for Darth Vader in his job interview, as seen in a video released by the department.

The "Star Wars" villain tries to convince his interviewer that's he's up for the position, but unfortunately, having the Death Star blow up under your command and attempting to use mind control in your interview aren't good moves to secure employment.

The department says the lighthearted video is a recruiting tool, and it seems to be getting the word out. In just three hours, the video garnered more than 800 likes and more than 1,000 shares on the department's Facebook page.

You can watch the video yourself above.
