Is this Toyota ad an homage or a rip-off?
Is it intentional that this Toyota Corolla ad is a ripoff of a commercial from the 1970s in which someone cut a diamond in the back of a car to prove how smooth the ride was? I want to say it was for a Ford or a Chrysler. What was more memorable was a "Saturday Night Live" spoof of the original ad featuring Dan Ackroyd and Gilda Radner in which a newborn was circumcised by a rabbi in the back seat of the "Royal Deluxe II."
