French Fast-Food Chain Introduces the Star Wars Burger Line, Including One on a Black Bun

Categories: Whimsy

So here's what you're looking at: the Frenchy-Belgiany fast food chain Quick, in honor of the Star Wars: Episode One Phantom Menace Shit Show in the Three Dimensions, is producing a line of Star Wars burgers. They will be available January 31, according to Eater.

Tracking down what the hell is exactly on these burgers has proved very difficult, so we'll just make sure and point out THAT THE DARK VADOR BURGER IS ON A BLACK BUN. Terrified, we are.

A few more observations to discuss:

1. What in the hell is "Dark Vador"
2. What in the hell is on top of the Jedi Burger patties? Scallops? Curds?
3. What in the hell is in that creamy sauce?

We'll keep an eye on this one before George Lucas adds CGI. And kudos to France for upping the ante on ridiculous fast food creations. There is a new bar, and it's higher than the highest fucking kite in the land.

My guess is that there are fries on the top of the Jedi burger. In the french part of Belgium, they have a fast food with meat and fries on a bun.

French people cannot pronounce a "th" sound because it is not used in the french language, so they changed it to "Dark Vador"

If you did a little more research you would find out the mystery of the burgers:http://www.csmonitor.com/Busin... It's Mozzarella!

In France, Darth Vader is known as Dark Vador because it's difficult for the French to pronounce the "th" sound at the end of Darth.

How can a James Beard award nominee not recognize chunks of garlic on a burger?

They wanted to make a Buzz Alderaan burger, but they just decided to blow the idea up.  Too soon?

Vador is the phonetic equivalent in French ("Vahdoor") of Vader in English... otherwise it would be pronounced "Dark Vahday".

No explanation why the Darth became Dark unless there's a trademark issue.

There's also a red-tinted-bun Dark Burger (a la Darth Maul).

No details available either for the sauces or the white lumps on the Jedi Burger.

The trailing caption is "For your health, eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables every day." followed by www.mangerbouger.fr, a website for nutrition and exercise (manger & bouger, literally "To Eat / To Move".

Finally, a good use for all those years of French classes.

Vador? What, does he spell it differently when he vacations in France so he can fly under the rador?
