Volkswagen Dark Side

Posted by Armando Alves | 28-06-2011 13:36 | Category: Environment

The Volkswagen ad with the young Darth Vader was popular, but the force is strong on this Greenpeace spoof/campaign, targeting the German brand.

According to Greenpeace, the auto maker opposes key environmental laws in Europe, including lobbying for slower greenhouse gas reductions, less efficient cars and intending to be “the most eco-friendly automaker in the world”, but only 6% of the cars it sold in 2010 were its most efficient models.
Greenpeace calls us in the Rebellion to drive Volkswagen away from the Dark Side and give our planet a chance.


For all young padawans out there, you can sign the Rebel manifesto at http://www.vwdarkside.com/ and get access to the Jedi training program and exclusive news.

P.S.: also impressive are the game mechanics on the Jedi training page to increase the Rebelion reach.

The Greenpeace VW ad spoof was pulled from YouTube by LucasFilm Ltd. And the GreenpeaceVideo channel is closed by YouTube.
Ridiculous because there are many Darth Vader spoofs on YouTube: http://bit.ly/jtL87H

But YouTube isn’t the only channel in the world. Watch the video below:


Update 2:
The Vimeo version was also removed. You can watch the video here.

Dark Side of the VW rebellion now take part in 423894 people. Every vote counts, because this increases the likelihood that VW finally does follow the expected actions instead of nice words.

New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
