In the extended version of this year's highly anticipated Volkswagen Super Bowl ad, a chubby dog named Bolt puts himself on a weight loss plan so he can catch a 2012 VW Beetle. And Darth Vader himself appears in a reference to VW's awesome "Vader Kid" commercial from last year.

In the first part of the ad, the overweight dog excercises religiously so he can give chase to a shiny red Beetle. In the second half, the menacing Sith Lord briefly appears onscreen as two undesirables debate this VW commercial versus last year's in Mos Eisley Cantina. Is this better than last year's Little Darth Vader?
