New Volkswagen Star Wars Theme Commercial Airs

There I was on this laptop computer with Jay Leno playing on the TV in the background.  Then they go to commercial break and all of a sudden - I start hearing dog barks.

Dogs barking in a particular way... A Star Wars theme song.

Then towards the end of the commercial, there is this greyhound dog who is wearing a AT-AT walker costume (i.e. Imperial Walker from "The Empire Strikes Back.")  Then you see a white screen and then the VW logo.

This is the latest entry of Volkswagen Star Wars theme Super Bowl Ad teasers.  Last year, VW scored big with the little kid that was dressed up as Darth Vader.

Want to host a Superbowl party and need a really SPECIAL invite? A invite to the (Dark)Bark side of the Force. Check out the special little ditty Volkswagen has produced for your enjoyment.

By the way, here is a breakdown of the dogs and what characters that they represent.  Back row, left to right: C3PO, Obiwan Kenobi, Stormtrooper. Middle row, left to right: R2D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Vader.  Bottome Row, left to right: Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Wicket W. Warrick (Ewok).

Of course, if entire video is not visible on this blog, just click on it and view it on YouTube.
