Jack in the Box is bringing back its most famous employee, Mark Hamill, to announce the return of Jack’s fan-favorite Spicy Chicken Strips and French Toast Sticks in an all-new campaign titled, “The Return of Mark Hamill.”

Included in the campaign is this video of a Hamill drive-thru stunt in which the Star Wars actor comes back to work at Jack in the Box, where he was employed as a teenager. Hamill was originally fired from Jack in the Box for impersonating a clown in the drive thru, but now he’s there for a limited time--just like the Spicy chicken Strips and French Toast Sticks. 

Hamill is seen and heard doing a clown voice--as customers who drive up to the window are astonished to see who’s waiting with their order.

Brendan Gibbons of Station Film directed the “stunt” film for TBWA\Chiat\Day LA.

Gibbons said, “The TBWA/Chiat team are a great bunch who came up with the idea to bring Mark back to the place he worked before he was an actor. That’s a great hook. We worked together to find a bunch of funny stuff we could hang on that hook. And what a pleasure Mark was. A great sport and a true gentleman.”
