What a great ad! I love the little Ewok, Chewbacca and Darth Vader.

Very clever.

THe YouTube blurb said:
A canine chorus barks a familiar tune. Keep an eye out for our 2012 Game Day commercial—it will all make sense. Love Star Wars and Volkswagen? Create an Intergalactic Invite to your Big Game party here: http://vw.com/star-wars-invite

So there will be more about it as a commercial on game day (no idea what game but I'll bet it's football)

They are talking about Superbowl commercial spot. That is where they premiered this commercial last year...

I'm do marketing for a living, specifically brand management and media for my company. VW has done a brilliant job with these commercials! This is the kind of stuff I geek out over.

You guys totally beat me to it! I was on my way to share the link here! I love it!!! Anyone else think that's one big IG? My parents' IGs are TINY and could never be confused with a whippet. This guy here totally looks like a whippet.

I checked on YouTube & it is The Imperial March from Star Wars. :lol: After listening to it for a few times I could start to pick it out.

I'm on another whippet related site and they are all voting that it is a whippet at the end.

Thanks to the photos released earlier, and this video, none of my friends will be happy until I build something like this for mine to wear.

However, the plan is still to make Flint an xenomorph costume. I'm sure you guys have seen the pictures floating around out there - in Alien 3 the dog alien was originally to be a whippet in a suit. It looks amazing but the dog didn't 'move right'.

A friend just posted this on Facebook and I immediately came here to confirm/deny whether it was a whippet. I'm convinced it is a whippet, although I don't think Ella or Porter would let me dress them up like that. It's hard enough to get them to wear a coat!

Seriously, the whole commercial is adorable.
