Lenin Was The Sith Lord We Were Looking For

Today in WTF-land: Ukrainian artist Alexander Milov has refashioned a statue of Vladimir Lenin into Darth Vader. Milov refashioned the statue, located in Odessa, Ukraine, in response to recent decommunization laws, which require the removal of Communist symbols in Ukraine.

Lenin’s coat was turned into a cape while his face was covered by the mask and helmet of the galaxy’s most feared enforcer of the Dark Side. If this all wasn’t WTF enough, the helmet also reportedly serves as a Wi-Fi hot spot.

And if that Alexander Milov sounds familiar to you, you might have seen his work at Burning Man this year.
