THE Greatest Commercial Ever!

So I was watching this again tonight, and just laughing hysterically. I distinctly remember seeing it during the Super Bowl, and saying to myself that was the greatest commercial I've seen in the past 10 years. Might be my favorite of all time. It brings back some great memories of my younger years. My best friend growing up, Aaron and I would spend hours and hours not only watching the original trilogy, but also reenacting them scene by scene. Of course we had all the action figures as well. He even devised a pretty sick display in his apartments in college and after of scenes depicted from the movies. Quite impressive.
I also owned a volkswagon during my college years, and to this day that car (I believe 1987 Volkswagon Scirocco) is my favorite of all that I've owned, even above my Jeep Wrangler that I let go. There was just something about that car. Another one of my best friends, Kevin had one as well. I still to this day see one every once in awhile, and it brings back such great memories. In fact, I still have a key to that car on a keychain!
Why am I writing all this? I don't know. Just wanted this video on my blog and figured I'd add a few words. Who would have ever thought to combine Das Auto and Darth Vader? Pure genius my friends, pure genius. That's reason enough right there to go out and buy a VW, or at least watch one of the Star Wars movies. Speaking of which, I'm gonna put The Empire Strikes Back in right now.
May the force be with you.


  1. "Use the force, Luke, let your feelings go"! Enjoy, my boy, enjoy!

  2. One of my favorite cars too. I miss it!

  3. Me too Kevin. Just saw one the other day while driving my bus. Great memories of a great car!
