The unavoidable championship football game that happened Sunday night isn’t a place you’d normally see some vintage Aichi steel, but if you were watching closely during the Superb Owl commercials, you might have caught some in Toyota’s “One Team” spot.
A rabbi, a priest, a Muslim and and a Buddhist getting into a Toyota may seem like the start of a bad joke, but it’s the premise for a Tundra commercial showing friends from four different religions coming together to cheer on their favorite football team. As it happens, nearly every car visible in the background of this town is a Toyota, including an L10 Tercel, and both FJ60 and FJ62 Land Cruisers. It’s not a huge deal, but for Toyotaku it’s nice to know someone at Toyota (or at least their ad agency) cares about representing vintage ‘Yotas. Did we miss any others?
Thanks to Brad D. for the heads up!
