Darth Vader riffs on Windows 7 ads

The Windows 7 ads: probably the most memorable Microsoft campaign since Windows 95's "Start Me Up" featuring The Rolling Stones.

But given such atrocities as the accompanying Windows 7 party and Microsoft Songsmith, this isn't much of a stretch.

The theme of the Windows 7 campaign was that it was "my idea", and YouTube user Sneaky Zebra has imagined how a similar campaign might work with a friendly face put onto the beleaguered Empire of Star Wars fame.

Watching Darth Vader wax on Daniel Larusso-style about his "pimped-out space ball" is a highlight, but the other highlight in the series includes Chewbacca with a sign-language translation by a crumping Stormtrooper. Yes, really.
