Everybody loves the Star Wars based Volkswagen adverts, right? Or maybe it’s just me, having been an avid collector of the figures back in the day, these ads were the perfect homage to my early years trying to ‘use the force’.

It’s never too late to help lead the universe to a brighter future. If Darth Vader can change, so can VW…
