Volkswagen 2012 Super Bowl Commercial: Dogs Bark Star Wars ThemePublished January 19, 2012
The 2012 Super Bowl commercials are going to the dogs...sort of.
While Super Bowl commercials featuring animals have always been popular, Volkswagen is trying to top the charts in terms of making a memorable ad by combining the popularity of animals in ads with the popularity of an iconic pop culture franchise: Star Wars.
Riffing off of a commercial from last year's Super Bowl which featured a child dressed up like the very recognizable Darth Vader, Volkswagen is replacing the child with several dogs and subbing out the Star Wars garb for the unmistakable Star Wars theme song. But there's no background music in this 2012 Super Bowl commercial.
That's right: the dogs actually bark the Star Wars theme song.
Still not a believer? Volkswagen has provided a teaser video to show it isn't kidding around. Watch the video below:
Pretty unbelievable, right? If that's the teaser, we can't wait to see what Volkswagen actually has in store when they unveil their Super Bowl commercial on February 5.
