Yoda Cup Of Noodles Japanese Commercial: Star Wars Promos Noodles! (VIDEO)

Yoda, one of the greatest Jedi masters of them all, used the last year or so of his life to teach Luke Skywalker the ways of the Force, preparing him to use his mind to eventually defeat the Galactic Empire. Fast forward a couple decades and a trio of maligned sequels later, and Yoda is back to his teaching ways. Just... perhaps for a cause that doesn't quite stack up to saving the galaxy.

Then again, even a Jedi has to eat, right?

The green Dagobah resident has made his way to Japan to promote the college student-favorite Cup of Noodles. In this new commercial, he uses his mind's power to lift a massive kettle filled with boiling water, taking the task as seriously as his visions of disturbances in the Force.

Boil Japan, indeed.

We're not sure if this helps or hurts Carrie Fisher in her ongoing "Star Wars" vs. "Star Trek" fight with William Shatner, it certainly isn't as cool as San Francisco's gigantic Lego Yoda Santa statue.
