Volkswagen mixes dogs and Star Wars for another Super Bowl ad

Watch at the end for a surprise appearance (hint: it's not a dog)

Volkswagen released an extended version of another Super Bowl advertisement, this time featuring a dog that wants to get in shape so it can chase cars (he can't fit through the dog door initially). This may sound like a Budweiser ad (I could picture the same thing, but with a Clydesdale or the dalmatian that hangs with the horses), but instead it continues the dog-themed-Star-Wars ad that it released earlier. Wait, what? Oh yeah, the end of the ad has some Star Wars stuff.

At this point, with so many advertisers pre-releasing their Super Bowl ads, I'll be surprised if I'm surprised by any of the ads that play during the game.
