Looks like somebody has gone over to the dark side.

A man dressed as Darth Vader stormed a Long Island bank around 11:30 this morning, brandishing a gun and demanding cash from a teller.

Despite the goofy getup, the robber yelled at the cashiers and customers, "This is not a joke!"

The Dark Lord of the Sith made off with an undisclosed amount of money from the Setauket Chase Bank branch.

This is just the latest in a string of odd robberies around New York.

On Wednesday police arrested a man for allegedly robbing a bank using a bouquet of flowers. A woman wearing a cat mask also recently held up a Manhattan shoe store, and an elderly man died in a car crash just days after attempting to rob a store, oxygen tank in tow.

Anyone with information pertaining to the crime or suspect is asked to call 1-800-220-TIPS.
