I don’t care if it’s a commercial trying to sell me a car. This is the greatest thing I’ve seen all week.
Usually the quirky commercials are the only thing I look forward to during the Superbowl. Guess it’s lucky for me some of them are premiering online a few days early. The video is a Superbowl ad for Volkswagon’s 2012 Passat. Not sure what the crossover is between Star Wars fanatics and German engineering but I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere.
In other news, Star Wars creator George Lucas and producer Rick McCallum took a visit recently to test out Disneyland’s new Star Tours attraction.
Star Tours has undergone a “reimagining” recently to become Star Tours: The Adventures Continue and is set to reopen May 20 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and at a time yet-to-be-announced for the Disneyland park in California in 2011.
Lucas stopped to pose with an animatronic C-3PO (who will be voiced and acted by original cast member Anthony Daniels) after he and McCallum gave their test-drive two thumbs up. Disney boasts when the new site opens you’ll be able to experience Star Wars worlds in 3-D for the first time. At Celebration V it was announced guests will be able to visit Endor, Bespin, Alderaan and Coruscant in the new ride.
The original ride opened way back in 1987, you know, before that kid in the commercial was born.
