One of the most talked-about Super Bowl commercials last night was the one for Volkswagen called “The Force” which showed a small child dressed as Star Wars villain Darth Vader, attempting to use The Force to move objects around the house.
The commercial got everyone buzzing, wondering, who is the child behind the mask. The actor appeared on this morning’s Today Show, lifting the mask to reveal an adorable 6-year-old blond boy named Max Page.
Watch the video of little Max on The Today Show here below, and learn about the struggles he’s had to endure so far in his short life. There’s no doubt we’ll be routing for him!
The TV spot shown during the game was a truncated version of the commercial, which I guess did its job in getting the word out about the car (which, honestly, I couldn’t tell you which model it was for), but failed to convey the heart that the full version did. You can watch the full one-minute commercial here below.
