Frohe (Star Wars) Weihnachten!

This German ad got me a little teary, and not just because I miss Christmasing in the Alps with my Oma and Opa: A pint-sized Star Wars fan courts his neighbor with Artoo and Threepio snowdroids (!) and with help from The Empire Strikes Back.

Of course, too bad they didn’t time it so that the girl could dress as Rey instead of Leia, but it’s still cute, especially the boy tromping through the snow as a Stormtrooper. (Which Target also did in their holiday ads, hmm.) But rather than be a movie tie-in, it’s for… a supermarket? Whatever Germany, you do you.
