He may not have defeated Luke Skywalker and the rebellion, but Darth Vader has certainly won our hearts. The star wars series started in 1977 but has grown popularity till this day. If you haven’t seen any of the 7 (including The Clone Wars ) then i’m sure you’ve at least heard about it ( and it’s time to get out from the cave you live in).
Over the years i’m noticed an increasingly number of advertisements that piggy back on the popularity of the tag lines and characters. I don’t see why not. When executed correctly, it becomes somewhat of a brilliant and entertaining ad. It also automatically gets classified under the “cool” category. Keep in mind that i have come across people trying to cross the bridge to the “cool side” and fail miserably when using the star wars theme. ( it ends up as total disaster and people tend to want to dismember the ones who abuse the dark lord’s name) with that being said, here are some cool ads i’ve come across that use the star wars them. Some are in direct connection to star wars, while others only use the characteristics of the … well.. character. Enjoy, and may the force be with you *insert geeky smile here*
And here are a few ads that aired. My personal favourite one is the VW. Later Greenpeace would “counter ad” it but it’s not as awesome as the original one, and kinda makes me want to scold them for trying to use star wars in a not so star warsy way.
I didn’t put all the creative that i found, but if you have one that is your favourite post it up and lemme see ^_^
