'Vadering' is the Geeky Star Wars Fan's Answer to 'Planking'

There are tons of great photo memes out there, but there's surely nothing quite better than 'Vadering.'

What exactly is Vadering? Well, much like the planking meme before it, Vadering is the practice of taking still images of moments that would be rather impossible in the real world. Instead of making people look like they're lying down at impossible angles in public, Vadering involves taking a picture of someone jumping in the air with their hands on their throat, while a second person raises their hand in the air the same way Darth Vader did in the Star Wars movies. The end results put all other photo memes to shame with wonderfully geeky outcomes.

Twitter and 9gag user Rob Martinez is currently taking credit for starting the meme and is collecting crowdsourced images submitted to him via his Twitter account.
