Greenpeace spoofs that Super Bowl Darth Vader ad to attack VW

Remember how Li'l Darth Vader starred in a Super Bowl commercial for Volkswagen that turned out to be the best ad of the night? Now Greenpeace has released its own version of that spot, and this time it's not being used to sell Volkswagens, but instead to paint the car company as having gone over to the dark side.

According to the commercial, "VW is threatening our planet by opposing cuts to CO2 emissions," which is why the environmental group gathered a bunch of other Li'l Star Wars characters together to confront the mini-Vader of the original ad.
