Toyota has released a 35-second teaser video for its upcoming Super Bowl spot staring Kaley Cuoco, the actress best known for her role as object-of-nerd-affection Penny on The Big Bang Theory. The real star of the ad, however, is its soundtrack, the 1995 hit "I Wish" by rapper Skee-Lo that will have your mind cashing nostalgia checks the moment it hits your ears.

We still don't know much about the content, plot or story of this Super Bowl commercial, though we can say that its object of promotion is likely the new RAV4 we see Ms. Cuoco driving in this teaser. The rest of the time she's walking the street in a purple getup granting wishes like Robin Williams on a Disney sound stage. And then the Easter Bunny and a chihuahua enter the picture and we get lost. Clint Eastwood under a bridge this is not.

But hey, Super Bowl ads cost millions and millions of dollars to produce and air, so we trust that Toyota spent its money wisely and will have us ROFLing on game day. Until then, scroll down and witness for yourself the debut of Kaley Cuoco as a Toyota spokeswoman.

      They cut the music before he said a 6-4 impala. Makes perfect sense...

      I like it, I am not talking about the vehicle.

      Seriously? You guys \"get lost?\" Why don\'t you listen to the song lyrics that you yourself called the ad\'s star. And with that you\'ll also understand, \"oh, wait a second, that\'s not an easter bunny.\" I can\'t believe this is so difficult for Autoblog writers to comprehend. Quite a clever commercial. PS, the chihuahua enters the picture way before she steps into the RAV4.

      " And then the Easter Bunny and a chihuahua enter the picture and we get lost" - The lyrics at that point say "I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat". Duh!

        Great, you know the song. Still no connection to the brand or the car.

      Nice bit of eye candy to distract people from the RAV4.

      A Toyota world... thank goodness this real world isn't like that.

      I bet Skee-Lo is happy they chose his song. One hit wonder.

      Don't you think that Toyota is making an ironic statement with this ad? They know the RAV4 an average car so all your wishing and praying for something exciting in life, ain't gonna happen with a Toyota, no? #witchonabroomlaughing#bestpart

      Someone should make an edited version of the film where the RAV4 *poof* turns into an Evoque or a Wrangler...or an Impala. Anything other than a RAV4.

        Wrangler much better.

        Those are your first choices to replace it? I can see the Evoque, but really, if I'm wishing for a car, its going to be something more like an Aston Martin or a Pagani.

          No, those are not my first choices at all -- I just listed some more likely vehicles that a potential RAV4 buyer might want instead of a RAV4...and Impala because of the song.
