501st Member Plays McVader

Pete Vilmur | February 4, 2010

The 501st French Garrison website recently posted a bunch of images documenting the photo shoot for McDonald’s 2009 French ad campaign which featured Darth Vader sitting in a McDonald’s restaurant “beckoning” his meal (the poster from this campaign just missed being included in the Complete Vader book — read about it here).

If we read our French correctly (ok, we translated through Google), the site states that 501st member Julien Vergnes (aka SL 8106) played the role of Vader for the ad — a pretty big honor, to be sure, although we’re not sure if he, or the guy behind him, was having a better time!

Check out our recent announcement for the new US McDonald’s Star Wars campaign.
