In honor of Star Wars Day, the Russian Embassy in the U.K. decided to send out this cheeky tweet.
That’s right. The Russian Embassy essentially just admitted that they’re on the Dark Side. In fact, they seem rather proud of it.
The not-so-subtle tweet definitely took some Twitter users by surprise.
Wait, this is a Verified account. Is the Russian Embassy REALLY being so blatant about being the Dark Side? ?? https://t.co/wCLJ6lAmxQ— IBBoard (@IBBoard) May 4, 2017
Others were quick to point out just how spot on it was.
The Russian Embassy's May the 4th tweet is *extremely* on-brand https://t.co/S6BNIhbbu9— Josh Billinson (@jbillinson) May 4, 2017
Unfortunately for the Embassy, a picture of Darth Vader taking a selfie with corpses in the background wasn’t enough to convince the world to make the switch. Go figure.
And let's not forget...
@RussianEmbassy You mean the side that kills civilians in Syria? No thanks.— Arran Skinner (@arranskinner) May 4, 2017
