The higher-ups at Volkswagen must be big Star Wars fans.
For the second straight year, the car maker is using George Lucas' epic saga as inspiration for a Super Bowl commercial. A year ago, Little Darth Vader was a huge hit.
So much so that the company released a teaser for the ad early here in 2012. The sequel, featuring a canine chorus barking a familiar tune, may be even better:
Barking along to the ominous "Imperial March" dressed as Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and an Ewok, these mutts will surely get people talking.
Or howling, one might say ... see what we did right there?
The appropriate title for the spot: "The Bark Side." Amazing.
