Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager web series (Attention Must Be Paid)

I haven’t done one of these Attention Must Be Paid posts in a zillion years and for whatever reason, I suddenly had the desire to tackle a web series that isn’t in production anymore and hasn’t been for several years. So, without further ado, I give you Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager!

Yesterday, I was digging around through my old t-shirts and found my Empire Market garb and suddenly thought of the episode of Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager during which Chad Vader tries a series of other jobs after quitting Empire Market. I love all the different jobs he tries, but the first one in call center is my favorite. For some reason, "The deal… the long distance deal!" is very funny to me. (See the clip above.) With this in mind, I thought, "I must share this with’s combined WordPress, Twitter and Facebook followers of 451 people in case they have never heard of Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager!"

So here we are.

Series creators/writers/actors/directors/etc Aaron Yonda and Matt Sloan are doing a lot of things right. I very much enjoy the photography, directing, lighting (various tech stuff) and that acoustic "Imperial March (Darth Vader’s theme)" is genius. The other music found in the series sounds like stock, but that’s ok – you can’t have everything. I especially love the voice acting of Chad as well as the on set performance – I love how he indicates. The performance is perfect. The acting isn’t always great and I don’t exactly love the writing of every single episode (there are MANY episodes), but overall, it’s a great series.

Maybe Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager overstayed it’s welcome by a season or two, but they certainly made the most of what they had and stretched their concept to the limit. If you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend you check it out.
