The Darth Vader ad has incorporated a Japanese emperor-like head piece along with the classic mask. Appealing to movie lovers and multilingual people, the Leo Burnett for DIRECTV ads are clear enough even for those who speak very little English.

With such iconic movies as Star Wars and V for Vendetta, the Leo Burnett for DIRECTV ads will most definitely speak to a large audience.
