Awesome! Yoda, Vodafone and Nokia Lumia 800 (no Jedi Training needed)

How awesome is this advert? Star Wars’ Yoda, and the Nokia Lumia 800 getting contacts from the old Moto.

The premise is that there’s a difficulty in transferring contacts and you’ll be needing some special skills, such as that from a Jedi (hence Yoda). But not with the Vodafone service.  Well of course we could just bluetooth transfer contacts and not the hard way that other phones (that aren’t Nokia) do it. But this is an ad more for the Vodafone service. It’s great that the Lumia 800 is there though. The Lumia and a lightsaber. Just two things any Jedi would need.

New Vodafone UK TV ad featuring Jedi Master Yoda. The ad focuses on RED Box, a service that automatically transfers contacts and content from your old phone to your new one. Yoda tries to use his power to help a couple with the daunting task of transferring numbers to the husband’s new smartphone, but, he soon realises that the Force is not needed, as Vodafone’s new RED Box service has already solved the problem.

The TV spot has been produced by a team at Lucasfilm’s renowned San Francisco-based visual effects facility ILM (Industrial Light & Magic), with Tom Kane voicing Yoda’s CGI character.


Cheers David for the tip!
