The Ten Greatest Star Wars Ads for Non-Star Wars Products
Even if Star Wars isn’t your thing, you have to admit that their ads are pretty cool. Oh, I don’t mean ads as in commercials about Star Wars products, no no… most of those are pretty silly. No I mean ads about things that have little to nothing to do with the Saga itself. That’s right, kids, the Star Wars influence is all over the place, and it’s all over these really epic commercials.
These are basically those little chocolate-coated cookie-like stir stick for coffee and such. The nicest touch is using the cup to imitate Vader. Awesome.
Hey, keep it down in the pews or there’s gonna be a chokin’!
This sort of has something to do with Star Wars since Pepsi is a big promotional tool, but you might not know that from just this classic ad.
M & M’s dressed to look like the Star Wars cast? Delicious.
This is a classic. Even if I already knew that Lightsabers don’t run on batteries (and I do), this ad almost makes you believe they just might.
Seamlessly merging Adidas advert faces with the classic Cantina scene from A New Hope equals EPIC.
There is just so much to love about this commercial.
Admittedly when I first saw this, I honestly believed this was possible: who knew a bird could look that good? What, did you think I meant about the mini Lightsaber? I’m not that gullible. Well…
This is almost too perfect. Be sure to check out the Yoda and R2-D2 versions, too.
Everything about this kid rocks, from his over-sized helmet, to his tiny hands, to the way he shoves his dad out of the way… it all works. If anyone deserves the Force, it’s this boy.
