UK Computer Store Starts Star Wars Ad Campaign… Where They’re the Empire?

For A More Civilized Age

PCWorld has released their holiday ad campaign, and it’s actually surprisingly funny… even to someone who is accustomed to seeing parodies of classic Star Wars scenes such as Darth Vader’s arrival in the landing bay of the second Death Star. And even a joke as predictable of Chewbacca with a hair dryer gets the musical kick that makes it into comedy gold.

Actually, I suppose that since almost every bad guy in Star Wars has a British accent, large parts of the UK are perfectly within their rights to identify with them.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
