This ad for the German (?) digital TV service Premiere is one of three featured on Ads of the World. The other two invoke Scream and Spider-Man. No idea if these are real ads or spec/student/portfolio work, but still pretty funny.

Poking around I also found a few more Star Wars-themed ads for Sony, Blockbuster and Disney (1, 2, 3, 4.) And it appears that Spike wasn’t the first to put fluorescents to work for the cause.

Hayden Christensen is on the cover of tomorrow’s Entertainment Weekly. It appears that this time there may actually be a real article to go with it.
