The force is strong with Volkswagen this year. The company has some big shoes (well, little Darth Vader ones) to step into after last year's adorable Star Wars-themed Super Bowl ad became the most-shared commercial of 2011. Turns out the company is sticking with the working formula, and has released another Star Wars-themed advertisement to stoke anticipation for the reveal of their big ad on game day (which is Feb. 6). Called "The Bark Side," the teaser features a medley of dogs barking Darth Vader's theme, "The Imperial March." It's the same song that was used for last year's ad, although that one was the orchestral version. Watch the new (ridiculously cute) video below!
Five lucky pups even got to dress up for the video. Chewbarka (yes, we just came up with that on the spot) is definitely our favorite, but the C-3PO, Darth Vader and Ewok ones are also forces to be reckoned with. We won't ruin the final surprise appearance for you, as that little Greyhound definitely has the best entrance.
Based on this clip, it seems safe to assume that Volkswagen is going to be doing another Star Wars-themed ad for the Super Bowl, which airs Feb. 5. But will it be a longer version of this commercial, or is this just a teaser for a new "The Force"-style ad to come? Only time will tell. Until then, we'll just watch this video 1,037 times.
