The Energizer Bunny meets Darth …


The Star Wars universe was not yet in full reboot mode when this commercial started running in the mid-nineties. It is silly and Vader is played for the fool, which I didn’t love, but I was so hungry for Star Wars related content that whenever it was on TV, it would stop me in my tracks and I would watch it.

    Great commercial! I remember they had the bunny interrupting the intro sketch of SNL one night too :)

    Say what you want about the reboots: seeing Ian McDiarmid play the emperor in the holo projector is still a lot less creepy than the orangutan-eyed lady playing it in the original :)
