TUNE UP: “Toyota Man” is an actual song by Indian Neon

You can imagine our joy when we discovered that there was an actual song called “Toyota Man.” Unfortunately, upon further research, the new release by Neon Indian doesn’t really have much to do with Toyotas at all, even if the video features a snazzy red A70 Supra throughout.

The song is really about immigration, singer Alan Palomo does the cue card thing at the US-Mexican border, and there’s a sentient piñata of Donald Trump running around. Apparently, the Toyota part is a reference to a job washing Toyotas at a car dealership, and not necessarily because Palomo is a Toyota fan. Still, there is a Supra, and it adds to the growing list of videos starring 80s Toyotas.
