In the minute-and-a-half-long spot, Patrick touts a new campaign centered around the three-wheeled motorcycle that she calls the "Paparazzi Escape Vehicle."  She explains that when celebrities are hounded by photographers, they can call 1-844-SPYDER-LA to have a Can-Am Spyder pick them up and whisk them away.

By way of example, we see footage of Tyler being rescued by Patrick from a crowd of shutterbugs.  He makes an obscene gesture toward the photographers as they drive away.

Believe it or not, this is a real offer from Can-Am Spyder.  According to USA Today, Los Angeles-area celebs will be able to utilize the rescue service for one week by calling the number.  

Incidentally, Tyler was involved in creating and lobbying for an anti-paparazzi law that was passed last year by the Hawaiian legislature.  The law helps protect celebrities from intrusive photographers.
