Sorry for that “Phantom Menace clip in the previous post,
but I did find something interesting when I was searching for it:
In today’s flashback to the ’90s news,
former child star Jake Lloyd,
the Turbo-Man fanatic from the Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas movie Jingle All The Way and the infamous first Star Wars prequel The Phantom Menace,
was arrested on charges including resisting arrest and failing to stop for a police officer in South Carolina this weekend.
Police saw Lloyd speeding,
and began to follow him,
but rather than slow down,
Lloyd sped up and according to TMZ eventually reached 117 miles per hour as he led police on a chase that ended with Lloyd crashing into a tree.

It's the picture that sells this—that yes,
I can see that kid becoming Darth Vader.

intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
