Twenty Questions Vader Style

It's amazing that some classic games never die.

Twenty questions, incarnated variously as The Bar Kokhba Game or 20Q (play the web version here), is one of the oldest parlor games around. You know the one: you get to ask up to 20 yes or no questions in order to figure out what the other person is thinking.

The Sith Sense is Twenty Questions presented as Vader trying to read your mind, sponsored by Burger King. It's scary enough having Darth Vader taunt you, but when the King comes out and whispers in Vader's ear, that's when my blood really went cold. That guy creeps me out. Take this not-work-safe video as an example why.

I think it's that vacant smile on that oversized plastic head of his. Definitely gets lost in the uncanny valley.
