R2-D2 filmed this new Verizon commercial in early January 2011 at Sony Studios. Too bad a starfighter eats up a million dollars in gas money, or maybe he would have picked Artoo! LOL Michael built the radar dish especially for this shoot with Lucasfilm.
Victor Franco came along and proved to be a valuable assist. These are his pics from the set.
Here's the demo video for Verizon and LFL.
Here's the commercial that began airing Jan 21, 2011.
