OT: Little Darth Vader: The Making of the Commercial

February 9, 2011

I know, it’s not Hillary or FoPo related, but….

These are the out-takes from the now-famous Volkswagen commercial that aired during the Super Bowl and they are too cute:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The actor also got to meet James Earl Jones (the voice of Darth Vader in the movies). Do you know the name of the person who was the “body” of Darth Vader- it wasn’t James Earl Jones- it was David Prowse.

Ok, full disclosure- I was 8 years old when Star Wars came out, was a huge fan (joined the fan club) and my parents were nice enough to indulge me and took me to see it 6 times in the theater in 1977.

    That is very funny. Score a big win for VW. You know, they usually have good commercials although usually they are more edgy but I liked this one.

    My son was into all the Star Wars movies and although he didn’t have a Darth Vader costume he took the movies VERY seriously, which is why I thought this commercial was so funny.
