Super Bowl Ads 2012: Volkswagen Presents 'The Dog Strikes Back'

After last year's wildly popular mini-Darth Vader commercial for the Super Bowl, Volkswagen is back at it again with another Star Wars-inspired ad for the 46th edition of the big game. This time an out-of-shape dog wants to chase after a car, but it is unable to get through the dog flap. The dog works out for months and finally gets through the hole in the door. Then it pulls back for the full reveal:


It's a commercial being shown at the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine. BoShek, Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba are debating whether this commercial or last year's one was better. But, of course, Darth Vader is in the bar as well and he uses Force Choke on Dr. Evazan because he is not in favor of the Vader kid.

It's pretty good, but Vader on Tatooine? Let's just say this commercial isn't part of the Star Wars canon.
