As Mrs Crimperman will confirm I have been despairing of late at the way some of my favourite Star Wars characters have been sold out by being used in adverts for PC World and Vodafone. It’s not just the fact that they are being used to sell mobile phones but to be honest the adverts themselves are total rubbish (You could look them up if you want to but I really recommend you don’t).
By contrast last year VW put out a brilliant ad featuring a child in a Darth Vader costume which was brilliant. This year they are looking to top that and (while I have no affinity to them) the “teaser” (yes a teaser for an advert) and the ad itself are really very good (I think the teaser is best myself).
They made me laugh anyway.
