Weird Commercial


Recommended Posts

Thank you.

 

Inspired advertising.  It actually makes me interested in buying a Toyota.

 

So much more interesting and entertaining than 99% of the crap presented to us.

I don’t know. I liked it. Loved the flying Toyota and the gloved hand catching the ball in mid air. :D

 

Never said I didn't like it.  Just that it's weird.

There is, supposedly, a southern expression about something being "so good it makes you slap your mama". I've never heard anyone, anywhere I've lived, use that expression, but people insist that it's a real thing.

 

Maybe they are trying to be chivalrous, so instead of slapping your mama they had you slapping your father.

 

Or it could just be a total flipping moron that wrote the article.

USA commercials are typically 15 or 30 seconds, not a show within a commercial of 2:30.

I'm with Rye. I loved it . All the big plays were included the bunt in heels, climbing the outfield fence, a home plate sliding tag, runner rounding the bases on a hit to the outfield. Even the catcher taking one bouncing back off the plate. Exciting, memorable, fun,,,,,,,,what advertising should be.

Don't forget the manager arguing with the umpire and getting thrown out of the game.

Yeah. There were probably other good scenes I forgot too. So many times, with US advert agency commercials, I can't even figure out what they were selling or promoting. This is what a winner looks like.

Toyota G's are a line of upgrades that Toyota market to buyers of their cars sold in Japan.  Think of them as Factory installed sport packages to enhance performance, handling, or looks.

For example a G's Prius would come with slammed suspension, low profile tires, and an aggressive looking grill. Inside the start button would look like the one in the video clip.
