It’s the incident that just keeps giving. That moment that President Zuma unfortunately fumbled over the ANC membership figures during a speech at the ANC National General Council earlier this month.
In its latest incarnation, Darth Vader is seen – in the latest Star Wars video trailer – doing the Zuma speech. On viewing the video, Twitter user Yoda tweeted: “A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defence, never for attack.”
Pre-ticket sales for Star Wars have broken records, selling eight times as many tickets on the first day as the previous record holder, The Hunger Games.
The trailer has already attracted over 51 million views on YouTube (although it’s not as impressive as Adele’s phenomenal Hello which was uploaded three days later and has had over 127 millions views!).
