Spare a little bit of your time today to send out some good vibes to Max Page, 7, who played the little Darth Vader kid in that adorable Volkswagen commercial last year. He’s having open heart surgery today, which will be followed by a summer-long recovery. His mom released an email she wrote, explaining his condition and reaching out for support.READ MORE

We’d like to think that this is the wreckage of a small defected duo of Storm Troopers, fed up with the crushing rules of Imperial Life, decided to break away from the last generation’s totally harsh sense of existence and travel around Naboo or somewhere temperate, just getting high.
On life. Or the Force or something. We’re not picky.

Looks like ‘wagen completely buckled under the pressure of coming up with a Super Bowl ad on the level of catchiness of last year’s offering, so they decided to do something kinda ‘eh’ and tangentially tie the two together, attempting to ride on the coattails of their past success. I wonder how many people are going to watch this on game day, having never seen last year’s commercial, and have no idea what they are looking at.
Alternatively, they could have remade the commercial with an adorable version of another famous character, and given it a twist ending. Ah well.

Hey! It’s another tiny Vader commercial! *GASP* And there are tiny Jedi! And droids! And walking carpets. Oooh, and they’re all going to fight Vader and he’s… going to activate the Death Star… and kill everyone. Because he represents anti-environmentalism. Because he is the bad guy. And we should take care of our planet. And planet carers join the Rebels… *sigh*
