Video: The greatest climate-change ad ever?

posted at 9:58 pm on June 28, 2011 by Allahpundit

To truly enjoy this you need to have seen Volkswagen’s Super Bowl ad, but since pretty much everyone in America already has, I think we’re safe. Credit where it’s due: Even if you hate the message, this is major progress in how greens advertise their cause. Not so long ago, if a kid showed up in a PSA about global warming, chances are he was being brutally killed. Now we’ve got happy tykes dressed up as Darth Vader and Chewbacca and running around with lightsabers. Progress, my friends. Cherish it.

Makes me so cheery — and climate-aware! — that I want to cut ‘em a check or put in a compost bin or get sterilized or something. Exit question: There’s only one thing standing between the green movement and a truly effective rebranding, isn’t there?

Get Luke Skywalker ASAP. He blew up two Death Stars, he can blow up a third one!

You bastards. I just had a contrast MRI and it showed that I lost several million brain cells watching that commercial.

I liked it better when they were blowing little kids up!
