I have been digging through a backlog of old bookmarks — Mostly things I meant to post last year (some even the year before that). While doing so I found this gem which had been making the rounds on the web a while ago and I remembered why I wanted to share it on the site. Not because of its poorly done plot or even its disco ambiance, both of which are wonderful, but instead one thing about this commercial bothered me. They play Chewbacca like he is some sort of ape. Now I love apes as much as the next person, maybe more, but it is wrong to insult a hero of the Rebellion and new Republic, by making him seem like some sort of grunting primate.
