If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
The ad is directed toward a new generation - those that drive minivans - hipsters. And the ad is rather obnoxious, but I love my new Camry. And I love my old Camry.
I'll buy the hipsters thang. But hipsters are just wrong, too.
Trying to play the video locked up Firefox. Just as well, I'm thinking.
It works fer me and I'm runnin' FF 15.0.1.
MY EYES! MY EYES! It physically hurts! Baaadd..
I can't believe I actually watched the whole thing, myself.
If you play this backwards it says "Cadillacs are Satan." Heh. And I confess, we have owned quite a few Toyotas. Those included: (1)a new '76 Corolla SR5 lift back that had the most fun 5 speed I've ever shifted, and (2) a '78 Celica that was pretty cool too. The new Toyotas do seem a little vanilla but America seems to like that flavor. The ad though, is weird in many ways. Many "Mother Father" ways.
America does indeed like vanilla. And Toyotas, too.
I'm with VX but I'll add "MY EARS MY EARS!!!"
Heh, I was going to add that, but I didn't want to guild the lily, lol. Good to hear from you, Curtis. Hope all is well...just not the same w.o. the old crew mixing it up at daily Lex's place--I think of Lex, you and the others almost daily..
What Virgil said, Curtis.
I lovemy Highlander, but that ad is, um, a bit much.
You are a master of understatement as always, Moogie.
Awwww sheeee-it!Gonna have no mutha-fatha swearin'Don' lahk no Toyotas.
Are ya gonna do a hip-hop reply rap, Skip?
I'm not planning on it. At least not in this lifetime, Buck.
Gotta agree with you Buck..........the commercial, well, it just plain sucks!! But, I also owned two Toyota's, a 78 Celica and 1979 Supra, both just kept on running well over 250,000 miles with TLC, before I sold them both to a couple of high school kids who just loved them. Oil consumption at those miles was very minimal and neither one hardly leaked at all.
I'll grudgingly admit they've made some quality products, Dave.
I'm thinking that him squeezing the nipple towards the end is obscene. OK, maybe I'm kidding...
THAT raised my eyebrows a bit, too.
"Swagger wagon"??? Really - the asexual minivan... you can't paint it any other way. The ad is beyond the pale.
Not only beyond the pale but sick, too.
I've had a problem with Toyota ads for a long time now. Something about every one of them just isn't right. I'm glad to hear someone else say so, too.
I'd fire their agency if I were Toyota. But I'm not...
And now I actually watched this hideous piece of crap. Oh My Goodness. Now I just want to KILL every Toyota.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
