Darth Vader Op-Ed Parody Goes Viral

Darth Vader Op-Ed Parody Goes Viral

  • A scorching New York Times op-ed by a former Goldman Sachs executive prompted a viral parody by none other than Darth Vader. Greg Smith, who publicly resigned his post as a Goldman Sachs executive director, railed his now former company for being a "toxic" company, where selling out clients was lauded over serving their best interests.

    TODAY is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

    Soon after, a clever parody by Darth Vader was penned at The Daily Mash

    In comparison, the first paragraph reads:

And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

    And, another clip for good measure:
    For more than a decade I recruited and mentored candidates, some of whom were my secret children, through our gruelling interview process. In 2006 I managed the summer intern program in detecting strange disturbances in the Force for the 80 younglings who made the cut.

    What do you think of the parody?
