Little Vadar

Volkswagen Wants to Destroy the Planet? GreenPeace Thinks So

Everyone loved the Volkswagon “Little Vadar” Superbowl commercial. There was even a great parody done by Marvel Comics for the Thor Movie release. Now Greenpeaceis upset that Volkswagen is opposed to CO2 emissions cuts and has decided to attempt to use the popularity of the Volkswagen Little Vadar ad campaign against them.

Something in this just doesn’t work for me though, it’s just a nagging itch in the back of my brain when I watch the videos (There are two). The kids costumes are cute, that mustache on Lando is hilarious, but it just doesn’t ring true to the Star Wars vibe for me. Watch both videos and leave your comments in the section below. Am I off track? Am I just not getting it?

Little Thor Hammers Little Vader’s Butt

Marvel Entertainment has taken the Thor movie marketing to a new level. Pirating, wait let’s call it “Viking-ing” the Volkswagen “Little Vader” Superbowl commercial to bring us “Little Thor.” I think it’s fantastic. There should be a whole series of these for all the Marvel superhero movies. Can you imagine what an Avengers or Hulk commercial using the “Little Hero” concept? It would be classic. Appealing to all the age groups and put butts in the theater seats and probably sell a hell of a lot of Halloween costumes. 

Check it out and let me know in the comments which other movie hero’s you would like to see “Littled.”
