Has anyone else seen the Target commercial with Darth Vader and uh... supermodel Heidi Klum? Yes, I did say Vader and Heidi Klum. (Target is a big box retailer in the States.)

The intro doesn't really tell you what it's for, except that there is a little Target bullseye on the deskplate. Vader is sitting at the desk wearing a telephone headset, with the only sound you hear being his breathing. He's sort of biding his time, tapping his hands on the desk. The supermodel comes in and sits down at the desk next to him. As she does, you hear Vader's breath sounds getting heavier and heavier. The ad is for a wake-up call on Friday morning so you can get to their post-Thanksgiving sale. You can go to Target.com and watch the "film." You can also select who you would like to call you.

Here's the URL for the wake-up videos.

My son and I cracked up.

Someone told me there is an Ice-T / Vader commercial. I'd love to see that, but it's sadly not on the site.

I find your lack of credit history disturbing...

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Well, a light skirmishing one as opposed to a heavy cavalry sabre (yes that is deliberate - that is how we spell SABRE in europe...)

Obviously...
