VIDEO: Prius backlash bubbles over in comedy sketch

11 posts in this topic

The Toyota Prius is the most fuel efficient vehicle in its class, very roomy, relatively affordable and Hanna Montana drives one. Maybe that last point is why some people are beginning to show hostility towards the car that's become the Kleenex of hybrids.

Andy Richter and James Adomain of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater have played off the Prius backlash in a faux car commercial pitting the Hyundai Elantra against Toyota's famous hybrid. Richter, formerly of Late Night with Conan O'Brien fame and not much since, plays the part of the frugal-minded Hyundai owner with an underlying anger issue, while Adomain gets all spiffed up to play the snobbish know-it-all with the Nickel Hydride battery pack. Forget about the totally erroneous statistics and the bogus sticker prices, just wait for the punch line. It's not the driveway shooting, but rather the fact this commercial is actually for the Nissan Sentra. Follow the jump to see it for yourself.

Even if I could hold my nose long enough to make the deal, the car's fate would be sealed.

I would never be able to resist the temptation to take my 20lb. sledgehammer to it.

God!

That would feel great!

I could, because the profit I would go a long way toward buying myself a nice Challenger R/T. :P

I understand the Dodge Challenger has outsold the stalwart Ford Mustang so far in 2009.:)
