Star Wars Fans Furious After Man On Supermarket Sweep Is Told Correct Answer Is 'Wrong'

An old clip of Supermarket Sweep is doing the rounds again and Star Wars fans are incensed. Watch below:


During the quiz round, one of the contestants, Dave, is asked who Luke Skywalker's father is in the iconic sci-fi series.

Now, for any Star Wars fan worth their salt, this is a walk in the park, right?


Well, as Dave found out, perhaps not.

In the clip, presenter Dale Winton asks: "In Star Wars, who was the father of Luke Skywalker?"

Then, quick as a flash, Dave buzzes in, seemingly confident he knows the correct answer.

"Anakin Skywalker," he fires back at Dale.


But his joy is short-lived, as Dale replies: "Not the right answer."

He then turns to another contestant, who says: "Darth Vader."

Correct, says Dale.


Daylight robbery, right? Perhaps Dale and the production team weren't very familiar with the saga and not aware that Anakin Skywalker and Lord Vader are one and the same.

Well, we aren't the only ones who were gutted for poor old Dave - there were plenty of others who were calling for retrospective justice for hm.

Commenting on the video, one user said: "OMG! If the people who decided on the questions / answers still work for the TV company they should be sacked forthwith, disgraceful fact checking."

Echoing this another chimed in: "Absolutely not. This is unacceptable, a travesty if you will. #JusticeForDave."


"Where's the petition and where do I sign it," pledged a third.

While another added: "Well, technically Luke and Leia were born when Anakin became Darth Vader. Where can I sign the petition?"

We can only pray that the telly gods at ITV are have heard the pleas and do right by Dave.


But this isn't the only example of classic television moments that has been doing the rounds in recent days.

This week marked 15 year since we experienced the best style-out of a job interview disaster ever.

Guy Goma majestically dealt with being thrown on to live television to comment on technology in the music industry, when he'd actually gone to interview for an accountant job.

In a devastating case of mistaken identity, Guy Goma was mixed up with technology expert and journalist Guy Kewney, and was put live on BBC News to discuss the case Apple Corps v. Apple Computer.

Legend has it that Goma was waiting in reception in the BBC Television Centre in London. Waiting to be called in for his interview, he was in another reception area to Guy Kewney, prepping for his live interview.

Somehow he got called in to the studio and the rest is history.
