FORT WORTH -- A long time ago (as in last year), in a galaxy far, far away (uh, called Fort Worth) Darth Vader showed up at PD headquarters for a job interview.

Obviously, he didn't get the gig.

Well, Darth is back. And this time, he's using one of his loyal Stormtroopers to take over The Force. But there's one problem -- dude can't shoot!

"Stop jerking the trigger," the officer in the video posted to Fort Worth PD's Facebook page says to the Stormtrooper.

Then, he shows him how it's done!

"Well, you're closer to the target than I am," the Stormtrooper says.


The first Fort Worth PD recruitment spoof video raked in one-million views. Well, this one's blowing the old one out of the Milky Way. It's racked in more than 9 million views in 24 hours.

It could have something to do with the new "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" movie hitting theaters on December 16.

If you think you can shoot better than this loser, and want to help fight the sinister, evil, destructive ways of the Dark Side, Fort Worth PD is accepting applications through December 12. Exams start in January.

So grab your light sabers, and "May the Force be with You!"
