Greenpeace Disses VW’s Darkside Through Parody

From Creativity Online: “Greenpeace recently released this spoof on Deutsch’s award-winning VW “The Force” spot, likening the automaker to the Death Star for its opposition to cuts on CO2 emissions. Little Darth faces off against mini-me versions of Obi Wan Kenobi, R2D2, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian and others.  Greenpeace would not reveal the creative individuals or agency behind the spot, as the organization’s representative said it would draw attention away from the film’s primary goals.”

What’s funny about this is you wouldn’t even really know what the commercial is about is you blinked. But mini-Lando Calrissian is kind of funny and the little kid who’s playing Obi Wan Kenobi seems more like a murderous Little Anakin Skywalker, which strikes me as really funny.

And part two is worth watching as well. [Thanks Roger]
