Girl…..Abby Elliott
Guy…..Kenan Thompson
Announcer…..Bill Hader



[ The camera’s angle’s from a tree top POV. A GUY and GIRL are strolling together, hand in hand. ]

Announcer (V/O): It’s time to get out. See the world from a tree’s point of view. Time to find Mother Nature and shake her hand, and when you travel, you always make sure it’s in harmony with the environment.

[ The couple’s stroll ends at their parked car. Both enter the vehicle. The camera pans down to focus on the car’s model name – PRIUS. ]


[ Both are screaming as the Prius accelerates out of control. The guy applies pressure to the Prius’ brake. No such luck. ]

Guy: I can’t slow down!

Girl: Step on the brakes!!

Guy: The brakes!?!? YOU DON’T THINK I HAVEN’T TRIED THAT!?!?!? Get the police on the phone.

Girl: Fuck! Oh my God!

[ The girl dials her cell frantically. ]

Guy: What the fuck!?

[ She turns to him. ]

Girl: It’s 911. Did you step on the brakes!?

Guy: Shut up, bitch! Gotta slow this motherfucker down!!

[ The girl cries hard. ]

Girl: We’re gonna die!

[ Both scream loud. ] [ FORD logo against a white background. ] [ SUPER: WE MAKE HYBRIDS TOO. ]

Announcer (V/O): Ford… we make hybrids too.


[ The Prius’ high speed goes into slow motion for a moment to show the girl pressed up against the door’s frame, screaming out the window. The Prius resumes its dangerous speed and rockets off into the unknown. ]
