Video: Texas cop, ‘Star Wars’ stormtrooper hit the range in viral recruitment clip

A hilarious new recruitment video pokes fun at the poor shooting skills of the Galactic Empire’s ground force

FORT WORTH, Texas — In a viral video intended to recruit more officers, a Texas department took a stormtrooper out to the range to promote the PD’s newest academy class.

The video posted Friday shows a stormtrooper missing a target at a shooting range multiple times, despite an officer’s attempts to show him how it’s done. 

Darth Vader makes a special appearance after the stormtrooper misfires and almost shoots the officer training him. 

The recruitment video calls for applications for the “force” until Dec. 12. The next civil service exam dates are Jan. 10-11, 2017.

This isn’t the first time the Fort Worth PD has used ‘Star Wars’ in recruitment ads. Last year, the department sat down with Darth Vader, who was looking to join the team. The job interview didn’t go very well.
