Click above to watch the video after the jump

You know you've hit a certain level of notoriety (for better or worse) when hacks with video editing software and a sense of humor post a video on YouTube that pokes fun at you or your situation and people actually watch. Toyota's recall of over 8 million vehicles for throttle, floor mat and brake issues has spent so much time in the headlines that the Japanese automaker appears to be at that dubious juncture.

Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show have taken their cracks at Toyota, but they're professionals and they make fun of everybody. Beyond the jump is something different. It's definitely not professional and the quality of production just isn't up to par, but it does have one thing that helps it stand out: It's funny. Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself.

      It's not horrible, but definitely goes on too long. 30 seconds would have short, sweet, and funny.

        Well some people just don't have a sense of humor. Or maybe the joke is just too complicated for you.

      You are all a bunch of idiots!!!
      If you knew the facts about Toyota and how the media is lying about everything, you would not post such dumb comments.
      The american company that makes the accelerators for Toyota, also make them for Honda, Ford, Nissan, Mazda, GM and so on. Ford and Honda just recalled some vehicles for the same purpose, but do you hear anyone talking about them?Toyota did not have to do this, they chose to because they are so cautious on safety. Sure say's a lot about the other car makers. I also think it is interesting how the government owns GM and how they are telling the media to blow this all out of proportion. It is really sad that we believe everything the media say's.

      ??????????? this was bad...

      I think it's funny. Think about it. We've got Toyotas being recalled because their accelerators are sticking wide open, their brakes are failing, they are stalling while in motion, and now there have been accidents resulting in injury because they won't steer properly. LOOK OUT PA! There's a TOYOTA ba'hine us!

      Okay folks, enough of the sarcasm, my family happens to own a 1993 Toyota Camry with 218,000 miles on it. Here are our facts for not driving anything other than a Toyota: our headliner is not falling down from dry rot, the paint is not oxidizing and rusting all the way through, the air conditioner still blows cold air, it doesn't roll over in a curve in normal use, not known to blown up from a rear-end collision, has the right motor in the right model; never has left us on the side of the road broken down; and very low cost for maintenance. We have also owned a 2003 Lexus SUV and had no problems with it. How many other car manufacturers have had recalls and how many are currently having recalls? Toyota is checking every automobile manufactured even though the possibility of any of these recall issues ocurring is less than 1 in 10,000. I will again buy a Toyota when I buy my next car!! AND TO YOU, jdee, the following information came from www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/02/11/officials-cite-jobs-defending-toyota-onslaught/?test=latestnews and I quote: "Toyota isn't just a Japanese company. It maintains a huge operation in the United States, with plants in seven states and 1,400 dealerships all across the country employing hundreds of thousands of U.S. workers." This is not to mention the thousands of related manufacturing entities across the country that make and furnish automotive related parts for Toyota. Don't be the average "follower" American, check out the facts before opening your mouth. And by the way, when the Federal Government was handing out "bail-out" cash to American automakers, Toyota was not one of them asking for a hand-out even though they are as much American as the so-called: American auto companies. Oh yes, in addition to this info, check it out, alot of the so-called American manufacturers(the big three, GM, Ford and Chrysler) have automobiles and parts manufactured in Mexico and also overseas. There are plenty of websites that will give you that info. So wake up and check the VIN number next time you are looking at a new car to buy for the designation of where the car is made.
