AWESOME! This is a really good ad, a nice follow up to last years SW ad.
I love this so much.
Then why don't you marry it?
I bought a full size Wilfred The Dog suit and tried to be cast for this commercial but they said I looked too human.
This played on tv last night, and I of course took note. But while last year's ad didn't really make sense to me from an advertising perspective, just playing off the Star Wars brand's popularity without showing anything unique or even remotely special about their product, this one doesn't even have a car in it. It is literally just "look how clever we are to use a license this way", it's a mildly amusing ad for a white room... or is it for dog food, or dog costumes, or the new Star Wars 3D release? It is just trading on Star Wars iconography in a new, attention-getting manner to get you to notice the VW logo at the end.
And the sad part is that they're probably "launching" the new Beetle which is around here already and just awful-looking, like they wanted to look more like the Mini and just squashed its lines to death. Or maybe it's for the new Passat, though that launched last year and was merely "cheap to be cheaper" while lessening the quality of the car itself.
As for the characters, most seemed clear, the dog wearing Chewbacca's bandolier is really odd though, it's not a particularly big dog, and it's not the kind of dog that inspired Lucas (Indiana, his Alaskan Malamute).
REM's Monster. Forgot what an underrated masterpiece this is.
Homeland: Carrie's Run by Andrew Kaplan. A stand-alone Homeland novel that takes place before the TV show. A fast-paced read.
Crime Zone (1989) - Sherilyn Fenn and David Carradine are the big names in this sci-fi turkey that feels like a well-decorated student film. Carradine
77 and clear skies at the beginning of a cooling trend. Humidity is 62% right now tho, so it's not as lightweight as it could be.
Culver City TRU had a lot of TBS 6" Kylo Ren, a couple Snowtroopers and Phasmas, some Hot Wheels Wicket and Ackbar cars as well as the newest wave
We're movin' on up: cheapest here is now $2.54, but most are just under $3. And Pittsburgh is 5-5 in its last ten games; much better than losing 13
Cool list JKNO, thanks for sharing!
Ace Of Spades ~ Motorhead. Because sometimes some Lemmy is what you need.
By the way Heather Lind who plays Anna strong is totally hot
I just finished the third season that was live on TV. Holly molly! I can't believe who hung!
I won't post spoilers unless if everyone's caught
