Darth Vader for Tom Tom



Funny video but I'd advise against buying something like this unless you think "geek" sells, which it doesn't because let's face it Ducky didn't get the girl in the end.

This kind of thing is only a good idea if you never ever want to have a girlfriend.

  1. My kids will think I am the coolest mom ever! Right?

  2. I have a feeling that there are a lot of women who would geek out about this one too.

    Personally, I'm tempted to get the Knight Rider Kit car voice for my Tom Tom.

  3. I don't know. I'd rather hear Darth Vader's voice on a Tom Tom in someone's car than the female voice from I Dream of Jeannie. Plus, I think it's also cool if you can get your computer start up to sound like the TARDIS's arrival sound, but that's probably just me.

    It's when a guy can't pay the rent because he used all his money to buy a Darth Vader costume for an upcoming Star Wars convention that I know it's time to run. But I see nothing wrong with redesigning an outhouse to look like the TARDIS, as long as he can still pay his bills and . . . eat (preferably something better than bologna and ramen).

  4. Um. About the outhouse made to look like the TARDIS, I meant just the outside.

  5. I bet Matthew gets Jar Jar Binks to be the voice of his Tom Tom...

  6. Sarah L - TARDIS dematerialization sound effect for boot up? I'd go for that too!

  7. LarryD, I get criticized a lot on this blog. But your Jar Jar accusation has hurt me terribly. Terribly.

    Isa bery sad now.

  8. OK ... I'm a woman and can name at least five other women who would think that was as hysterical as I did! Ok three. Three other women. Not sure what that says about us...

    But one that sounds like Jar Jar? Can I buy it just to blow it up?

  9. Oh, I GOTTA get me one of these. I wonder if it says, "I've got a baaaaaad feeling about this" whenever you get stuck in traffic.

    Regards,

  10. Hey now... there are some of us women who embrace our inner geek and aren't embarrassed to be around our husbands whose ringtones consist of light saber noises or the weird theme from LOST! :-)

    Seriously though, I laughed a lot at this video... even better than the one I posted yesterday to my facebook in honor of Star Wars Day called "Darth Vader being a smart @ss."

  11. Ok, Can you get these for a Garmin? My kids would love it, if I can figure out how to download it. My grandkids probably won't know who it is. AnneG

  14. My compass has Isaac Newton's voice. Ok, so it's just an actor's voice but it's uncannily like Newton's. I was fooled anyway.

  16. Suz,

    There's at least four. I thought that was hilarious.

    I'm a much bigger geek than my husband... is there any movement towards having Mr. Spok do this??

  17. A lot of girls wouldn't give you the time of day for this while dating... but if they're keepers? Awesome. And I'm completely on board with the TARDIS startup for the computer - especially if the on-screen icon for "My Computer" is a mini TARDIS. (And of course the Dalek is the trash can. E-LIM-IN-ATE the old file! E-LIM-IN-ATE! E-LIM-IN-ATE!)

  18. nightfly - or you could use one of the newer version Cybermen: "De-lete! De-lete!"

  19. True, Larry. As long as the pointer is a sonic screwdriver, I'm good.
