Volkswagen Teases Star Wars Super Bowl Ad in ‘The Bark Side’

What started out last night as another one of those annoying barking dog commercials you tend to power through if you lack DVR capabilities turned into a pretty spectacular feat of nerdery. In an effort to tease something involving Star Wars and it Super Bowl commercial, Volkswagen put together this clip of several dogs dressed as Star Wars characters and barking out some pretty solid sci-fi tunes.

This isn’t the first time the German car manufacturer has teamed up with Lucasfilm to create an ad. You probably remember seeing the one last year featuring a little boy dressed as Darth Vader trying out his force powers on various objects simply titled “The Force.” Does this mean we’ll be rocking out to barking dogs for the foreseeable future? Or possibly just until Phantom Menace 3D hits and leaves theaters? We shall see.

    I could be reading too much into the previous commercial, but I had the impression that it was a little girl given the girly bedroom.  Could be a little sister though…

    Can’t wait to see what is coming for VW’s Super Bowl commercials this year.
