Darth Vader tries to pitch a movie - not reckoning on the power of the Suit Side. Requires Quicktime. I thought it would be crap, but actually laughed, so maybe you will too.
  • Vader. Shilling mobile phones. That guy really is pure evil...
  • Vader: "Join you? Never!" Like father, like son, I suppose. Funny stuff.
  • This is part of a series of adverts for Vue cinemas in the UK designed to get annoying people to turn off their mobile phones during the movie. They've been mostly hit and miss, although one with Mini Me aslways has me in stitches.
  • I did like that, actually. Thanks.
  • It's actually an ad for Orange, the mobile phone network. They have bought the 'gold spot' - the only ad between the trailers and the film - at every cinema chain, and have been running ads like these for a while. They're all pretty good. Orange are my network, and every bit of junkmail I've had from them recently has been about Star Wars- I guess they've got an exclusive deal to use it in their marketing and are milking it for all it's worth!
  • Well, I kinda chuckled when he pulled the Jedi Mind Trick™ out of his arse, but that was about it.
  • Stooges slap = teh funny!
