Tiny Thor ad – Click above to watch video after the jump

Volkswagen created a serious stir with its Super Bowl commercial featuring an adorably pint-size Darth Vader, and now Marvel Comics is riffing on the same theme as part of the run-up to the upcoming Thor feature film. The studio has gone through the trouble of recreating the German automaker's "The Force" ad nearly scene-for-scene... with one notable exception.

Despite the fact that Acura has saddled up with Marvel for the latest comic flick, the hero car in this particular spot is not the new TL. That's probably all for the best given the final outcome.

While Volkswagen's tiny Vader couldn't quite bend the force to his will, this runt manages to have a little better luck with Thor's hammer. We won't spoil the ending for you. You'll just have to check out the full spot in the video after the jump.

      Why did they use an A3's interior? That's just weird.

        If you ever see the interior of one of those things, you'll understand.

      Since when does a Rover 75 have an Audi interior?

      Stupid.. the reason the VW ad did as well as it did was because it was original and slightly amusing. This is a poor copy with a POS car. FAIL

        Stupid... you do realize that parody's are and can be just as entertaining as originals. If anything it pays homage to the fact that some one found it worthy enough to mimic and put a spin on it. Your failure is to realize that thought process.

        You do realize it was a Parody right? That and at the end the car blew up right? That its promoting a movie and not a car right? I just want to make sure here.

        You realise the Rover 75 (and MG ZT) were pretty good cars, despite what else was spewing out of those companies at the time.

        I agree but I think this aimed soley at Thor fans who would pick up on the subtle changes to this ad versus the one it copied. But yea... it was still lame.

      It's not a rover you ignorants, it's an MG ZT Tourer and it was and still is a great car.

        Car interior is actually an Audi A3.

      That was great... I noticed a few references to Marvel comics ( the Stark Industries coffee mug, the dog's dish (Loki) and the license plate on the vehicle (A5G4RD)...asgard, the myrthicla home of the Norse Gods.. and of course, wagner's Riode of the Valkyries ans the background music!

        Don't forget that the Rover logo was a Viking ship...
