The Force Is Strong in This One

Here's a preview of a new Volkswagen ad that you should see some time during tomorrow's Super Bowl broadcast.It's already generated quite a buzz, with over 10 million views on YouTube and over 54,000 positive ratings on Facebook. I heard about it on NPR's news and chat show, All Things Considered."

When I saw it I thought it was charming and decided to share it with you. Enjoy!

UPDATE: Here's a link to a story about six-year-old Max Page, the diminutive Darth Vader in this ad. Seems young Max has already made a name for himself as a child actor, but even more significantly, has already battled to overcome adversity. He was born with a heart defect that led his parents to seek treatment for him at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. Under the care of some skilled surgeons and cardiologists, Max has made significant medical progress and is hoping for a normal life. Prayers and best wishes, Max. May the Force be with you! Thanks to Patrick Archbold of Creative Minority Report for the link.
