It doesn’t take any Star Wars Jedi mind tricks to go green. Remember the cute mini-Vader with enough force to make the VW’s Superbowl commercial go viral?  Greenpeace is showing his, well, dark side in a new commercial that slams the car company.

The organization’s “Dark Side of Volkswagen” campaign is trying to expose VW’s poor environmental practices, from not making good use of their fuel efficient engines to opposing laws that Greenpeace has claimed will curb global warming.

According to Greenpeace’s report, only 6 percent of VW’s sales in 2010 were energy efficient models.  Additionally, they oppose laws that Greenpeace was lobbying for to introduce efficiency standards for vehicles.
