Pint Sized Darth Vader Needs Heart Surgery [Videos]

We will never forget the Volkswagen commercial from the 2011 Super Bowl that featured a pint-sized Darth Vader trying to use ‘the force’ to no avail until, thanks to a little help, he starts the car to his complete amazement. The commercial is one of the best ever and the star, seven-year-old Max Page is about to undergo heart surgery at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. Max was 6 when he did the iconic commercial, but he was dignosed with a congenital heart defect when he was three months old. Max has an incredible outlook on his situation saying he will use the force to get him through the surgery.

Max’s mother, Jennifer Page said when he found about the surgery, “Initially, Max was crying and repeating how scared he was. Around bedtime he asked if I would stay up with him and talk. He wanted to make a ‘CAN DO’ list. So we wrote out all the things he can do so he could focus on those.”

Max is a brave little boy and is forever woven into our hearts as the little Darth Vader that could. Our prayers are with you Max and we pray the force is with you during your surgery. See the iconic commercial below and a segment from the ‘Today’ show.
