Watch: Omar Gonzalez dresses as Darth Vader in Pachuca welcome

Omar Gonzalez dressed as Darth Vader in his reveal to local media as the newest member of Pachuca.

U.S. men's national team center back Omar Gonzalez is now a member of Pachuca in Liga MX, and while the charismatic Gonzalez is known for some eccentric videos (who could forget this Thanksgiving saxophone message?), Tuesday's introduction to the local press was something else.

Gonzalez dressed as Darth Vader, taking off his mask while being revealed as the club's newest player. The Galaxy sold Gonzalez for an undisclosed transfer fee on Tuesday, sending him to Mexico after seven seasons–and three MLS Cup titles– with the Galaxy. Now, he is in a Galaxy far, far away (Yup, did it.).
