Darth Vader Visits Currys PC World
Curry’s and PC Word, British megastores owned by Dixons, have treated to a visit from Darth Vader in a recreation of a scene from Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. Following on from the success of the 2010 Star Wars themed campaign, the television commercial recreates the scene in which Vader inspects the progress of the Death Star’s construction. Vader arrives in the Imperial shuttle to inspect rows of Curry’s and PC World staff, looking for a high level of continually great service. He is not disappointed. The campaign also features several brilliantly funny viral spots featuring Chewbacca and R2D2.
