The video embed below includes six Japanese Star Wars-themed Panasonic commercials that star George Lucas. I’ve never seen these before, and it’s really strange, surreal, and cool to see Lucas in a series of ads like this.
These ads were made in honor of the 10th anniversary of the release of Star Wars: A New Hope. These were made during a time when there really wasn’t much going on with Star Wars franchise in the US and there was more of a fanbase in Japan that Lucas could capitalize on.
Anyway, here’s the result, and I’m sure they’ll entertain you for the next four minutes. Thanks to /Film for the heads up!
