Los Angeles, CA (KTLA) -- Max Page, the 7-year-old who was the face behind the force in Volkswagen's popular Super Bowl commercial, is getting ready to undergo open-heart surgery.

The operation -- Max's eighth surgery -- will be performed at Children's Hospital Los Angeles on Thursday.

Max was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect when he was just 3 months old.

His mother, Jennifer, described his condition on the Today Show last year.

"He had his first surgery at 3 months old at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and from then they saved his life and gave him back to us," she said.

You go Max and may the force be with you.

Awesome! That commercial almost made me start liking Star Wars again after Lucas killed it with the prequels.
