Japanese Star Wars Tuna Commercial

Industry legend has it that toward the end of production on the original Star Wars movie (episode IV to all you purists), George Lucas ran so low on funds that he had to offer a percentage of box office sales to the cast in order to pay them. Whether or not that’s true, I do hope that Hamill, Ford, and Fisher did make a little something off the residuals from this 1978 Japanese tuna commercial.
