Eleven million people have watched this video of a Darth Vader fire pit, possibly pledging their allegiance to the dark side in the process.

The popularity of the footage is a tribute to the force of Alex Dodson, who crafts the themed wood burners using steel.

He's also made other Star Wars characters for his customers including R2D2, Boba Fett and Stormtroopers.

Footage of the burner, which was made in the UK, was filmed in use from the garden of its new Australian owner.

The contraptions are hand crafted on the outskirts of Barnsley near Sheffield, the UK's steel city.

After watching the video users from across the world flocked to comment, with many requesting one for themselves.
