I hate myself for liking this as much as I do – especially since it’s basically a commercial for an upcoming commercial. But darn it all, who can resist cute pooches doing silly things? In what’s billed as “The Bark Side: 2012 Volkswagen Game Day Commercial Teaser,” a so-called canine chorus barks a familiar tune, the Imperial March theme from Star Wars. Check it out below.
It is kind of awesome. Apparently, we are all supposed to “Keep an eye out for our 2012 Game Day commercial - it will all make sense,” when presumably VW will roll out a new car ad during the Super Bowl on February 5.
Keeners will recall a very funny Super Bowl ad last year for the VW Passat, in which a kiddo Darth Vader tried (and succeeded, with the help of Dad) to summon magical powers. Clip below. You can also find out about this year's promotion here. In the meantime, I am just enjoying the clip (especially the little “Wookiee” dog!)
