A Completely Unauthorized 1978 Japanese Star Wars Commercial…For Tuna

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Q02weIJD3I&feature=player_embeddedAs much as I would have liked to embed this thing above right there, Facebook is a dumbass and won’t let you embed their videos for some reason, and this thing is so rare, I couldn’t find it anywhere else on the internet after THREE MINUTES of searching, so click on the picture and watch the thirty seconds of gloriousness that follows.

Update: Found it!  It was all in Japanese so hence the difficultly of location. Thanks Geekologie!

I thought it was just going to be a few stolen character ideas, with people wearing a fur suit and a gold robot mask, but not, they went allllll out, and you’ll find Threepio, Luke, Vader, Leia, Han, Chewie and a platoon of Stormtroopers. The only reason there aren’t more characters ripped off is because this came out before the other movies. I imagine they made a sequel in 1984 featuring a chorus line of Ewoks hawking thin sliced turkey.

But damn, it worked, I want some tuna.
