Chill out R2

Here's an ad for Star Wars The Phantom Menace in 3D. It's awful. I know it's aimed at kids, but it's still so awful. I don't like to throw around the phrase "worst than Hitler" but I'm pretty sure this is indeed worse than Hitler.

Obviously the advertising wizards that put this thing together have never actually met a kid. My kid is 2 and he thought it was condescending. Kids love things that look cool, they don't love some guy with a wacky effected accent telling them JUST HOW ZANY something is. It's freaking Star Wars, it sells itself.

I'll let Rob over at ToplessRobot point out the best part:
When the narrator says, "Hurry up, Qui-Gon, you don't want to be late for the celebration!" As you might recall, QUI-GON IS COMPLETELY DEAD AT THAT POINT IN THE MOVIE AND ALSO THEY SET HIS CORPSE ON FIRE. So he might be a touch tardy, kids.
