VW's Latest 'Star Wars' Super Bowl Ad: Is This One Better Than the Little Kid in the Darth Vader Costume?

VW's Latest 'Star Wars' Super Bowl Ad: Is This One Better Than the Little Kid in the Darth Vader Costume?

Jan 19, 2012

Last year Volkswagen debuted a Star Wars-themed commercial during the Super Bowl that had everyone buzzing. It featured a little kid in a Darth Vader costume who runs around his house trying to use The Force, eventually leading to his father playing a more realistic Jedi mind trick on the youngster. Well this year VW is back with another Star Wars ad, and they're teasing their latest Super Bowl ad via this other ad featuring a chorus of dogs dressed in Star Wars costumes all barking the Star Wars theme song. They're calling it The Bark Side.

Their description: "A canine chorus barks a familiar tune. Keep an eye out for our 2012 Game Day commercial—it will all make sense. Love Star Wars and Volkswagen? Create an Intergalactic Invite to your Big Game party here: http://vw.com/star-wars-invite"

So we gather this isn't their finished Super Bowl ad, but rather a teaser for it. In the end it doesn't really matter because that one Ewok dog is so adorable, we almost forgot what we were watching anyway.

Check out both spots below and let us know which one you think is better.
