R2-D2 and C-3PO raid U.K. electronics store


R2-D2 and C-3PO break into a Currys & PC World Megastore (the British version of Best Buy, near as I can tell) for some harmless mischief in this M&C Saatchi commercial. Well, not totally harmless—they break a video-game system and dislodge a flat-screen TV, and R2 ogles a defenseless washing machine. (Plus, they leave some Star Wars fans' pride bruised.) But the droids are a good pop-culture reference to connect with the megastore's bold claim that it's "the greatest electrical store in the galaxy." And no matter how much crap they broke, their visit is definitely better for business than Gary Glitter's was.
