SNL fake Ford commercial – Click above to watch the video after the jump

With all of the buzz surrounding Jim Sikes and his "runaway Prius" last week, it doesn't surprise us that the funny folks at Saturday Night Live have spoofed the situation in one of their infamous fake advertisements.

As you'll recall, Sikes claims that his Prius started to accelerate unintentionally and that he couldn't stop the car by simply hitting the brakes. Big news, indeed. Late last week, however, new details were uncovered to suggest that the whole incident may have just been one big scam. Toyota will be releasing the full results of its investigation later this afternoon, so we'll wait until we have the official word before we start pointing any fingers. Hit the jump to watch the SNL commercial.
