ISIS TV Commercial Sparks Outrage in the US

Based on a TV commercial for Toyota’s new Land Cruiser model, called Toyota ISIS.

Saturday Night Live’s two-minute parody aired Saturday and spoofs a Toyota commercial in which an American father chokes back tears as he drops his daughter off at an airport, where she’s met by men in fatigues. Presumably, she’s off to join the military.

SNL lampooned the commercial by replacing the men in military uniforms with bearded combatants sitting in the back of a pickup truck that’s adorned with ISIL’s black flag.

The daughter, played by “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson, assures her father she’ll be safe (“Dad, it’s just ISIS”), and makes her way over to the armed men. Her father, Taran Killam, tearfully tells one of the fighters, Kyle Mooney, “Take care of her,” to which he calmly replies, “Death to America.”
