Canned Star Wars Meat? Team | February 1, 2010

Recently, this retro (1978) Japanese commercial for canned tuna — or at least we’re guessing as much — has been making the rounds, so we couldn’t resist blogging about it.

It’s not every day you see C-3PO breaking up an epic duel between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker by offering them a snack of canned meat instead. Plus the cameos of stormtroopers, Han Solo, Chewbacca, a rather disco-fied Princess Leia and an odd assortment of Cantina aliens make this commercial even cooler.

May the Force be with Hagoromo Foods!


Below are some of our favorite screen grabs from the commercial:
