"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Unless this is a jab at SOPA, you entered the address wrong.

If this were released closer to Halloween I could see AT-AT greyhounds being all the rage.

And what do Star Wars and dogs have to do with Volkswagen?

I'm guessing that the white bulldog is supposed to be a storm trooper, but I have no clue who the B&W dog and the tan dog are supposed to be.

I think the tan one is supposed to be C3PO and maybe the other Han

Oh, crap. My bad. Sometimes NoScript is more of a pain than it's worth. Fail.

Appreciate the save, Watson.

Black and White has to be Han, as Totenkopf said, but I think you must mean the tan one in the middle since the gold disk gives 3PO away pretty well. So, if you do mean the one right in the middle, it's got to be Obi-wan. Took me a while to get, mostly because I was enjoying playing the video a couple... okay, four times, er... five times, before I thought to try to match up the characters.

But yea, process of elimination leaves only Ol' Ben unaccounted for and the dog is kind of the same colour as Obi-wan's robes. Sort of. Close enough, anyway.

Since when do ads have to make sense, though? They just need to grab your attention. This is especially true these days with so many people having DVR and fast forwarding through commercials. I know if I saw that, I would have stopped to watch it. A lot of advertisers don't get it and just complain about DVR while making the same ads they made ten years ago, but Volkswagen (or their ad agency) apparently gets it and have made a great ad that people will remember and talk about.

You're probably right. I guess I didn't think of the middle dog in the back as being "tan".

The pug is R2 based on colour and size. Also, his shape is rather R2ish. The chihuahua is Yoda based on size, but more than that, his big ol' Yoda ears.
