The Surfing Trooper Tumblr is a unique blog that showcases some of Darth Vader's army taking a relaxing vacation.

The blog, which doesn't credit anyone in particular for each shot, is devoted to the white masked men. The blog simply states, "The Surfing Trooper is taking a vacation from the Empire to surf around our world. Last he was seen in the waves of Fiji but what will be his next destinations?"

The Surfing Trooper is a clever photo series that prefers to stay anonymous, which adds to readers' intrigue to find out who is hiding behind the mask.

Implications - Pop culture franchises that have a cult following such as Star Wars cause loyal fans to incorporate the characters into their lives. This allows them to escape their life, especially if it is hectic.
