Aired in 1977 during 'The Making of Star Wars As Told By R2-D2 and C-3PO', this commercial stars R2-D2, C-3PO, Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Jawas, and even Tusken Raiders, and various other Star Wars characters. At the time, Burger Chef (now Burger King) hamburger restaurants gave away free Star Wars posters with purchase of a large drink. In the commercial, R2-D2 and C-3PO travel to a Burger Chef restaurant (which looks to be located at a food court, rather than a complete restaurant) to pick up the new Star Wars posters. However, when they arrive, they find that Jawas, Tusken Raiders, and even Darth Vader escorted by Imperial Stormtroopers had the same idea in mind. A fairly rare commercial, which is not included on the infamous 57 commercial reel.
