You’ll remember the popular Volkswagen commercial that first aired during Super Bowl 2011. It starred a miniature Darth Vader (an adorable kid) who attempted unsuccessfully to use his force in the house. But the Star Wars icon went outside, waved his hand and started the Volkswagen Passat, thanks to his dad’s quick unnoticed attention — and remote starter. Watch it here.
Max Page is the 7-year-old youngster who gave life to the role. A heart patient from birth, he has a pacemaker and has raised funds for other heart patients. He will undergo open-heart surgery in Los Angeles this morning to repair a hole in his heart and replace his pulmonary valve. The actor appears on the Young and the Restless.
“‘Kids, if you use your force and dream big, you can achieve anything. We may be small — but we’re mighty!”
Read what Max has planned for when he gets home here.
