Classic CM: Celica XX, Electric Boogaloo

This one goes out to all the MkII Supra owners out there. Never say JNC doesn’t love ya. As you know, the second-gen Toyota Celica Supra was known as the Celica XX in Japan, and this commercial for the home market from 1983 contains more 80s cliches than a cocaine overdose on Wall Street. Special effects drawn by a Commodore 64, bluish neon that glows like a Tron nightclub, Grace Jones, and music that can only be described as Depeche Mode and the Pet Shop Boys beating each other to death with their keyboards… it’s all there. And what is up the suggestive placement of the Super Sports Machine’s headlights in the final shot? Double X double entendre, anyone?
