The Dark Side of the Stärke

This kid already knows that the dark side is cooler.  Way to go, Volkswagen!


H/T to Rob Neyer over at his new digs for the video.

PS - as far as I can tell,  "Stärke" is the German word for "Force".  But you probably figured that out already.

You think this kid is retarded? I mean...they never actually show his face, and he seems pretty comfortable wearing the helmet. A little too old for Star Wars kinda deal...know what I mean?

He can't get the fuckin' Force to work all god damn day, and then magically when his dad gets home, he can start a fuckin' car? Use your head mongo...it didn't go down that way.

And if my son ever pushes past me after a long day to have a staring contest with the car and doesn't take 2 seconds to give me a hug, I'm turning him into an ashtray. Sorry...but it's how I was raised. It's just what you do.

Thanks for sharing...I loved it.

Doggie - Obviously, this kid is...special. Feels like I've written that already. ;)

Slyde - Tool!

Sybil - It is one of mankind's greater inventions.

This was one of the best Superbowl commercials.

While a cute commercial, this didn't thrill me as much as the other Volkswagen ad on the Superbowel, with the little Beetle running through the forest. My personal favorite was Rosanne Barr getting hit by the swinging log. My least favorite was Half-time. The Black Eyed Peas and Slash? Puhleeaassee.

Wabbit - Yeah, I wasn't 100% on that one...

Marty - Weird that we can now see them all BEFORE the big game, isn't it?

Lotus - I didn't see the Roseanne one. Half-time sucked big time.
