Copyright vs. Satire: How far can one extend the 'fair use' or satire legalities when it comes to using similar imagery in advertisement? (more inside)

Essentially, I came up with a funny commercial idea for my business, where I would like to mimick/satirise the iPod commercials. (Bright backgrounds, silhouetted characters) My products, which are in NO WAY similar to iPod or techno oriented in any way, would be featured similarly in a humourous way.The comercials would be local market only,with a smallish viewership. So my question is this. Can I use that imagery in a similar but unrelated way without placing myself in legal harms way.
