A Must See: Preview of Adorable "Young Darth Vader" Volkswagen Superbowl Ad (UPDATED)

So Volkswagen really wants you to watch their Superbowl Ad. So much so, that they "leaked" it to YouTube. Thankfully too, since us Canadians can't see the good ads without all sorts of rangling.

Volkswagen describes the ad:
The spot features a pint-sized Darth Vader who uses the Force when he discovers the all-new 2012 Passat in the driveway. It leverages humor and the unforgettable Star Wars™ score to create an emotional commercial.
I'm surprised they put the 2nd sentence in, it's like telling you how and why you were manipulated into loving it so much. And you will. Each time I watch it, I picture that the kid under the helmet is the Dude. You totally know what's coming but it's still awesome -- the reaction is so genuine. I laugh so hard, I cry each time I watch it.

UPDATE: Also found this great gem over at Boing Boing about a Dad that threw his kid a Star Wars party where they convinced all the kids they had "the force" -- with hilarious results.
