    Hi new member here. I've been meaning to join you guys for about a year and I finally have some cool news I thought you guys would want to share so I got my lazy ass up and joined! Anyways onto the important stuff! Target is doing a Black Friday campaign with a bunch of stars including Darth Vader. If you go to Target.com you can sign up and have Darth Vader call you Friday morning to wake you up for the Black Friday sales!!! Don't forget to see the funny commercial there with Darth and Heidi Klum!! He doesn't even say a word!!

    Later,
    Mars

    Where's the link where I can have Heidi Klum just roll over and wake me up in time for the sale?

    Bosh

    I don't know of any link, but I guarantee Heidi would only awaken you by prodding you with a 20 foot pole.

    I suspect treachery.

    Then again, I said that about the birthday thread, too.

    pengy, if you're doubting the truth of this, it's sadly true.

    i think it's pretty damn lame, myself, yet i signed up for a call from darth. curious to hear how it is, and glad it's free.

    Oh, I believe it's true. I just suspect legitimacy of the source:

    -registered less than an hour before starting this thread
    -his/her one and only post is to plug an upcoming corporate event (hell, the intro thread has been near the top of the page for the past few days)
    -lots of exclamation points

    I've been wrong in the past, but this thread screams "plant."

    so you're saying perhaps we've been spammed by corporate???

    how exciting!

    and they emulated the vernacular of the average SW fan online so well.

    (if you are real, Mars, many apologies. If not, go back to the red hell of Target from whence you came.)

    Well, I can definitely see how after a year of lurking that news of a Darth Vader wakeup call would bring you to the surface.

    That call was SO not worth it.

    Yeah I know how important my voice is to so many people. I'll make more calls next year. :p

    ginna was on the phone when it came through, so it went to voicemail. i got the tail end of what sounded like a stormtrooper saying some bullplop about an imperial shuttle picking me up in the parking lot.

    ho, ho. i'm betting they called in larry kasdan to pen that gem.

    anyway, it was a stormtrooper, and not vader, at least in the part I heard. which kinda makes sense, since i doubt james earl jones is gonna blow into lucasfilm to record two lines for a target promo. yet it makes me wonder, why advertise a call from DARTH VADER IF HE'S NOT CALLING?????

    It's wasn't 'Darth Vader' at all that called me that morning.....it was some stormtrooper thing, which really did kinda freak me out. I thought---"Oh crap! What did I forget to do now?!?!" But then I realized it was a recording. :\
