    I saw this Toyota commercial on TV just a few minutes ago and it reminded me of the latest Apple ads "Every day, more people..."

    The music sounds similar and even the voice-over guy.

    Does anyone know/think this video was made from the same company that made those Apple ads?



    Beautiful ad. :) The piano really makes it pop.

    Decent ad. Straight to the point of the vehicles features without sugar coating them in that it shows people being idiots driving with the lane departure warning, etc saving their butts.

    I sort of fell asleep half way through it because of how boring the Corolla is. ;)

    It's sad that the most exciting car in the Toyota line-up is sold under a bargain basement brand (Scion FR-S). No character in the main lineup. Lexus is almost as bad.

    I feel like the more that a car drives itself, the less exciting drivings becomes :cool:

    My favorite toyota ad is still the old matrix ad that always played in theatres:

    I thought it was good. One of the better automotive ads I've seen lately now that I think about it - for the reason that it actually shows features of the car.
    You'll see what I'm trying to say if you saw this.

    Although many find toyota boring and lacking character. Those are features I like in a car. All I want is a safe, reliable, and unpretentious car.

    The safe and reliable cars that are actually fun to drive and are well designed have those features too.

    So the question is do you want to enjoy your car or just think of it as a toaster on wheels. ;)

    Not a big fan of Toyota either. Very bland.

    I did think this faux commercial was interesting...

    I agree. I think that they are better than most other competitors in their class.
