Volkswagen has already stirred up the most interest for the Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Ad featuring the 2012 Beetle with a teaser video that has now already 7.3 million views on Youtube. The Bark Side features a chorus of dogs barking a Star Wars theme. The ad is raising huge expectations for the actual Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Ad. The New York Times reports that the Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 commercial will be released on February 1, four days ahead of the Super Bowl XLVI.

Update 02/01/12:
Volkswagen released the highly anticipated Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Commercial is online. Find out what a Dog named Bolt, a 2012 Beetle and the Star Wars Cantina have in common.

Volkswagen has also released the 2011 Super Bowl Ad titled The Force, several days before the Big Game. The article also reveals the first screen grab from the Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 ad. The image shows some aliens in a bar that looks like the Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina from Star Wars. Where is Chubba The Hutt? And how does this scene fit into a commercial about the 2012 Beetle?

All we know is that Volkswagen is again running a Super Bowl ad with a Star Wars theme. George Lucas gets again handed a big bag of gold for his Star Wars franchise. I really would like to know what Volkswagen has to pay to use Star Wars in their ads. I assume the cost for the ad slot on the NBC Super Bowl broadcast is small compared to the Star Wars license fee.
