The partership between Volkswagen and Star Wars has continued past the Super Bowl per the following e-mail from our friend David:
"Lucas has joined up with VW to promote the new 2012 VW Passat. They are using a cardboard cut out of the mini vader used in the commercial made famous at Superbowl. They are also using it to advertise the new Blue Ray editions of the movies. I work at the dealer and we have the cardboard cut out on the sales floor."
