VW Mini Vader ad Greenpeace follow up – Join the rebellion

Remember the VW advert I posted a while back? No? Refresh your memory here: Pint sized Darth Vader Volkswagen advert

Well Greenpeace have gone and had a stab at VW’s green record by doing their own version of the ad and casting the brand as the evil Empire. Quite clever really. They have a group of pint sized rebellion Star Wars characters including Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, C3PO, R2D2 and Yoda all turning up to try and stop VW and their mini Vader.

Check it out below.

Oh, and did you spot the nice reference to Leia’s first encounter with Chewie in the movies?

UPDATE The video has been pulled from YouTube after a complaint from LucasFilm, but you can still see it here:
