Little Thor spoofs VW
Marvel’s promotion of the new movie, Thor, includes a spoof of the popular Volkswagen Vader commercial, in which a young boy tries his psychic powers out around the house. Little Thor, the young god of thunder, tries to use his hammer to call down the lightning on the exercycle, Lokl the pet golden labrador, the clothes dryer, a flaxen haired maiden doll, all to the tune of Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”. The boy’s persistence with the toy Mjolnir pays off once his father drives up in the car. Note the name on the car’s license plate, as well as the reference to Tony Stark on the kitchen bench.
