The Plinkett reviews are by far the best thing to come out of the prequels, including the prequels.

Now included in the history of Super Bowl advertising: “Star Wars.â€

Lucasfilm, the production company founded by “Star Wars†creator George Lucas, has paired up with Volkswagen of America for a 30-second spot during the Super Bowl this Sunday.

The spot portrays a small-size version of galactic villain, Darth Vader, using “the Force,†on a 2012 Volkswagen Passat, accompanied by the swelling music of the “Imperial March.â€

Somehow there is also a baby involved. Coo.

According to Tim Ellis of Volkswagen of America, “We’ve partnered with Lucasfilm for the all-new Passat ad, leveraging the emotional heritage of both “Star Wars†and Volkswagen to create a memorable moment.â€

The ad is part of Volkswagen’s campaign for the new Passat sedan, even though the car won’t be available until the fall. The Passat, displayed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in early January, is a mid-sized sedan.

VW also has a Super Bowl ad coming for its new 21st century Beetle. The advertisement is said to be all razzle-dazzle computer graphics and not actual images of the car. The new Beetle also won’t be available for sale until later this year.
