The Power of the Force

I know this Volkswagon commercial has been making the blog/Twitter rounds, but I've gotta share it. (RSS readers click here to view the video)

Confession: I'm a Star Wars nerd. As in, I've seen each film a few dozen times. As in, I collected Star Wars cards (similar to those Magic cards the American church was so against back in the mid-90s). As in, I still have that Star Wars card collection somewhere in my house, with Darth Vader safely enclosed in a hard plastic case. As in, I have Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmets on the bookshelves in my office. It's part of my childhood.

Deep down, if I'm honest, I am this kid in this video. How about you?


  1. I collected the card game too! In fact, I think I've still got a Dark Side deck composed. Just in case you ever feel like a game. :)

    By the way, hilarious commercial!

  2. JJ, I dunno if I ever actually PLAYED the game, I just collected the cards. But I'm open to trying. :)
