He was dressed in street clothes and only on camera briefly. The bit ended the show with Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy, and Bill Engvall coming out dressed as “wrestlers” and challenging any 3 people in the audience to come and get a piece of them. Vader was one of the three guys who came up to accept the challenge, and Jeff Foxworthy and Co. ran from the stage, chased into the back by Vader and Co.
