First photo of Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Ad reveals a scene taking place in the Chalmun's Cantina of Star Wars.

Volkswagen has already raised a ton of interest for the Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Ad featuring the 2012 Beetle with a teaser video that has now already 7.3million 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.

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. What characters form Star Wars will be in the cantina? And how does this scene fit into an ad about the 2012 Beetle? Will there be a Beetle Pod race? Yes, Please! Watch the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Pod Race below.

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.

Watch the Volkswagen: The Bark Side Super Bowl Ad Teaser.

The Super Bowl 2012 is taking place in Indianapolis on February 5th, 2012. Just like last year, I4U News will be featuring again the Super Bowl for Geeks Guide. Of course the Super Bowl 2011 for Geeks Guide will be all about the Super Bowl Commercials and not the game. For even more Super Bowl 2012 Ads coverage visit our new Super Bowl Ads Blog.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
