From a galaxy far, far away, Darth Vader is catching on to modern social media.

The founding father of force-chokes posted a selfie on Star Wars' new Instagram account. The inaugural photo shows Vader mugging (masking?) for his smartphone camera, surrounded by hints of smoky chaos.

Star Wars: Episode VII won’t be in theaters for another two years, but it seems the franchise's top players are back at work. Vader’s filtered pic came with the caption "Another day at the office."

Based on his hashtags – #StarsWars, #DarthVader, #selfies – Vader seems destined for Instagram greatness. Our only advice for the Dark Lord? Forward-facing cameras are your friend Darth; use them.
