Greenpeace spoofs the VW little Darth Vader spot.


(via) Ooh, a VW death star. I'm not going to get into an eco-car viability discussion here, but this is a pretty sad attempt by Greenpeace to ride the coattails of the original video's huge viral success (over 40 million views). Little Lando Calrissian is a cutie, though. Greenpeace says the video will be distributed online "in more than 14 countries."You can "join the rebellion" here. The VW spot, by Deutsch, just won a Gold "Film" Lion at Cannes. update: Today, Greenpeace also hijacked some London billboards. To view several previous Greenpeace videos, go here.
update: George Lucas forced Greenpeace to take down the video from their site.

Guess the original Greenpeace hippies never got to go to India in a VW bus.
