Rapper Busta Rhymes has become an unlikely pitchman for a Toyota minivan after making an appearance in a bizarre new commercial for the car company. The ad features a family rapping about the Sienna, referring to their family van as a “swagger wagon,” and rhyming about the highlights of the vehicle before they are joined by the rapper.

Busta Rhymes isn’t the first musician to sing to a van – last week Nissan released a series of ads featuring Bret Michaels singing to cars and playing guitar at the company’s test facilities.
