Swipe File: Little Darth Vader Vs. Little Thor

Swipe File: Little Darth Vader Vs. Little Thor

Posted by April 21, 2011 Comment

Okay, this swipe file is no accident, and nobody is trying to pretend it is anything less than a flat out cover version, but the Little Darth Vader Superbowl commercial has been given a Thor-hawking makeover.

Here’s the original:


And here’s Little Thor:


I know who I’d put my money on down at the underground toddler fight club.

Some great details there – the dog’s name, the numberplate, etc. Kudos to the creatives behind this one.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.  If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
