Greenpeace fights the dark side - Click above to watch the video after the jump

Greenpeace has launched a parody of the Volkswagen Little Vader Super Bowl commercial. This time, the pint-sized Sith squares off against various heroes of the Rebel Alliance, including kid-form versions of Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, Princess Leia and a Jedi Knight. There's even a tiny Lando Calrissian.

Why the neighborhood throw down? According to Greenpeace, Volkswagen is opposing European legislation that would impose further limits on the amount of C02 that new vehicles are allowed to emit. The video then draws an easy parallel between VW and the Evil Empire, complete with a looming VW-badged Death Star.

If you want to watch Episode II, you'll need to sign up on the Greenpeace website. The organization will e-mail the head honchos at Volkswagen on your behalf to decry their actions, so make sure you mean it. As of the time of writing, around 21,441 "rebels" have joined the cause to watch the second video. Hit the jump to check out Episode I for yourself, and head over to the Greenpeace site for more information.
