Super Bowl ad blitz hits Web early again

Volkswagen has barking dogs and Star Wars music to generate interest

Last year, Volkswagen debuted its Super Bowl ad on YouTube a few weeks before the big game, featuring the pint-sized Darth Vader who tried to use the Force to move various objects. That video became the commercial of the year, garnering millions of views before the game was even played.

So it's no wonder we're seeing another ad from Volkswagen already, this time featuring barking dogs and the Imperial March theme from Star Wars (hey, might as well stick to what works, right?)

We'll be tracking other Super Bowl ads as they come out before the game (most likely will), so if you see one that you enjoy, let us know.
