Calling all Star Wars fans: There's now more evidence that backs up the long-running joke that Storm Troopers can't shoot straight.

The clip posted on Facebook by Fort Worth Police Department has been viewed over 16 million times and shows one of their officers talking a Storm Trooper through shooting a target.

"Stop jerking the trigger," the officer tells the Storm Trooper before reminding him again he's still jerking it. "Hey, it's not as easy as it looks!" the Storm Trooper replies.

"Who referred you to us?" the officer asks towards the end of the video before they both turn around to see Darth Vader shaking his head.

It's been a long running Star Wars fan theory that Storm Troopers can't shoot straight, as although they fire hundreds of shots at important characters in the original movies -- they never seem to kill anyone of importance.

The Fort Worth Police Department seem to have a bit of a thing for Star Wars, just last year they produced another recruitment video where they interviewed Darth Vader for the job.
