When Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda created the first Chad Vader film, they had no idea that it would turn into the Internet sensation that it is today. The very first episode reached over 100,000 views on YouTube the first day and has gone on to exceed 9 million views today.
The storyline is based on the younger brother of Darth Vader, Chad, who is a grocery store manager. Yonda plays the role of Chad Vader, while Sloan provides the voice.
The Chad Vader phenomenon has now turned into a series with a finished season 1 and a nearly completed season 2. Both Yonda and Sloan have been able to quit their day jobs and devote all their time to Chad Vader. The two are very appreciative of the opportunities the Web has offered them.
Yonda tells WebProNews:
“It really turned into something great and we’re very lucky.”
Season 3 of Chad Vader will begin in early 2010. If you would like to view the Chad Vader video series, visit Blame Society Productions.
