I'm a native New Yorker, but have long since traded the Big Apple's subway system for another city's trains. While my commuting experience is always full of the stench and surprises that come with battling humanoid underground dwellers, nothing can ever top the characters you'll meet in NYC's train cars. The folks at Improv Everywhere are helping to secure New York's subway rep with their latest video -- one that pairs beloved Star Wars' characters with a group of unsuspecting commuters on a subway car.

You'll probably remember Improv Everywhere's "Frozen" videos -- where masses of people froze space and time in Grand Central Station. And who could forget the famous "No Pants Subway Ride?" I wouldn't want to sit on those seats afterward. This time, the gang's mission includes Princess Leia and Darth Vader, and a scene from Star Wars: A New Hope -- recreated on the 6 train.

I wish Improv Everywhere would make my train ride more exciting. The guy who flashes me his chest taco meat just isn't cutting it anymore. Check out the video after the jump.
