Dogs Bark Out 'Star Wars' Theme in VW's Super Bowl Teaser (Video)

The spot features a pack dressed as various characters from the film, and promises a strong follow-up to last year's Darth Vader send-up, "The Force."

You all remember last year's great Volkswagon ad "The Force" featuring the little kid dressed as Darth Vader, right? That Super Bowl ad proved unbelievably popular and racked up over 48 million views on YouTube.

Well, this year, VW is back with another Star Wars-themed commercial titled "The Bark Side." A little teaser went up Thursday and it's already been viewed over seven million times (!). The dogs arf and woof a rendition of John Williams' The Imperial March and the teaser includes nods to Chewbacca, Ewoks, AT-ATs and more.
