Today show: Super Bowl star “Little Darth Vader” of Volkswagen ad was born with a heart defect

I heard my husband chuckle during the Super Bowl when an ad featuring a “Little Darth Vader” came on-screen. I thought it was cute too. Little did we know the star, 6 year old Max Page, was a relatively new actor who was born with a heart defect. In fact, his mom told the Today show that he has a pacemaker and occasionally needs to go to the hospital.

The lesson Max can teach parents of children with serious medical conditions and disabilities is not to hold them back or underestimate what they can do physically.

Check out the video, including clips from the ad:
