Twerking for Vader: Stormtroopers get down

If Miley Cyrus can twerk, why not a posse of "Star Wars" stormtroopers? Watch their finest pops, locks, and booty shakes in this fan-made video.

Stormtroopers may not be able to hit the broad side of a barn when aiming at rebel scum, but they can at least hit the dance floor with impressive moves.

This fan-made "Star Wars" video -- "Stormtrooper Secrets - Hip Hop Twerk" -- features stormtroopers dancing and twerking their cold little hearts out until Darth Vader puts a kibosh on their Imperial jig.

Dancing stormtroopers are nothing new. Tokyo Dance Trooper (aka Danny Choo) has entertained tourists on the streets of Japan, Paris, and London for years with his impressive dance moves.

But this marks the first time we've seen a gaggle of stormtroopers twerking...at least in this galaxy.
