Stormtroopers stick together in tender and moving spot from Publicis shop

The poignant ad pulls double duty for Globe Telecom and Rogue One

Imperial stormtroopers were originally intended to be a kind of spacefaring Wehrmacht—soldiers so deadly and indoctrinated they left Old Ben Kenobi quaking in his robes. Rampant memification has left them twee shadows of their former badassery. But if that is the price we pay for more spots like this one for Globe Telecom from Publicis JimenezBasic in the Philippines, so be it. Oh, it’s also an ad for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and part of the #CreateCourage campaign that is raising money for the pediatric ward of Philippine General Hospital in Manila. Sob away, Gold Leader.
