Back when Darth Vader was still Anakin Skywalker, he practiced The Force at his parent’s suburban home. No, not really, but in a commercial for the Volkswagen Passat 2012, a mini Star Wars fan fruitlessly tests his powers on various objects around the house, as John Williams’ classic “The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme)” accompanies him through his trek.
In this very cute commercial, the pint-sized Darth Vader makes various attempts on an exercise bike, the family dog, the washing machine and a doll, but to no avail. His last hope is his dad’s Passat, and even he seems surprised when his power finally works… thanks to some extra help. Check out the ad after the jump.
