It’s been 12 days since Volkswagen unleashed “The Bark Side” and started building up anticipation for the sequel to last year’s beloved “The Force” commercial. With four days to spare until Super Bowl XLVI, the car company has released an extended version of “The Dog Strikes Back.” It’s one of three 30-second VW ads that will air on game day and features not only an adorably chubby pooch but also a final-act twist worthy of “I am your father!” Watch below.
Footage of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in the elevator on the way to the Emperor’s throne room. Vader: So… What happened after you left Bespin? Luke: What happened? I was without a right hand for 5 hours. What kind of a father cuts off his son’s writing hand? Vader: This is Star Wars, Luke. Nobody writes anything in this universe. The only writing I ever see is that Aurebesh junk on Coruscant. Luke: Dad, what are you saying? Vader: I never learned to read, dumbass.
