Tom Brady is Darth Vader in Crazy Austrian NFL Championship Sunday Promo

Thank you, Austrian TV, for putting two of my favorite things together: Football and Star Wars.

In this very unique promo for the NFL's conference championships Sunday, TV network PULS4 in Austria mashed up American football (in a country far, far away) with the hottest thing of the last few months, Star Wars. In the video, Tom Brady is cast as Darth Vader to Peyton Manning's Rebel pilot, and Cam Newton leads Hoth-bound stormtroopers against Jedi Carson Palmer's Cardinals.


At the very least, they got the Patriots right on, being the Empire - what's Brady's Sith Lord name? Darth Deflator? It's bizarre, and it's wonderful. Check out the full trailer above.
