The Ten Greatest Star Wars Ads for Non-Star Wars Products

Even if Star Wars isn’t your thing, you have to admit that their ads are pretty cool. Oh, I don’t mean ads as in commercials about Star Wars products, no no… most of those are pretty silly. No I mean ads about things that have little to nothing to do with the Saga itself. That’s right, kids, the Star Wars influence is all over the place, and it’s all over these really epic commercials.


Stir-Stick Lightsabers

These are basically those little chocolate-coated cookie-like stir stick for coffee and such. The nicest touch is using the cup to imitate Vader. Awesome.


The Dark Lord of the Sith
Wants you to Shhhh in Church

Hey, keep it down in the pews or there’s gonna be a chokin’!


Master Yoda
Loving the Diet Pepsi

This sort of has something to do with Star Wars since Pepsi is a big promotional tool, but you might not know that from just this classic ad.


M & M’s
Candy-Coated Galactic Goodness

M & M’s dressed to look like the Star Wars cast? Delicious.


Darth Vader Vs. The Energizer Bunny
That’s embarrassing.

This is a classic. Even if I already knew that Lightsabers don’t run on batteries (and I do), this ad almost makes you believe they just might.


All Day I Dream About Star Wars?
The Force is strong with this one.

Seamlessly merging Adidas advert faces with the classic Cantina scene from A New Hope equals EPIC.


Darth Vader Vs. Heidi Klum
Hitting the Target

There is just so much to love about this commercial.


Cutting a turkey.
Somehow it’s about Hondas.

Admittedly when I first saw this, I honestly believed this was possible: who knew a bird could look that good? What, did you think I meant about the mini Lightsaber? I’m not that gullible. Well…


Darth Vader Vs. Tom Tom
Round A-Bound

This is almost too perfect. Be sure to check out the Yoda and R2-D2 versions, too.


Darth Vader Vs. Everything
He finds his sudden ability… disturbing?

Everything about this kid rocks, from his over-sized helmet, to his tiny hands, to the way he shoves his dad out of the way… it all works. If anyone deserves the Force, it’s this boy.
