Having today found a copy of the movie, I see that the special effects in the Toyota commerical are
much better than those in the movie. Here are all the scenes from the movie that show
meteors/meteorites (I expected much more). The guy in clips 2 and 4 is the guy I thought I saw the
arm/beer/hat of in the Toy Yoda commercial. (Clips are encoded in divx, www.divx.com)
