VIDEO: Happy Father’s Day!

Loving Eyes Toyota Safety Sense Celica XX

Toyota of Japan is cold killing it right now with complex, perspective-shifting videos that would make even Christopher Nolan throw his hands up in surrender. First there was the girlfriend-less AE86 driver story that perfectly synced productions from three different countries. Now comes this heart-rending journey of father and daughter as they go through a lifetime of fast cuts. Try to hold back your tears as the dad watches his baby girl grow up — and is forced to trade in his Celica XX for a minivan (though he gets an Estima, which is kind of cool, and I think there’s a transitional Mark II in there briefly).

The video is, of course, an ad for Toyota’s Safety Sense suite of electronic minders, including automatic braking when it detects and impending rear-end collision. But the timing of this video couldn’t be better. Happy Father’s Day!

    So many onions and sand… and everyone knows the Succeed is better than the ProBox.

    Oh, that’s just sand in my eye… I swear.
    Having had to trade in my fun daily for a Honda Odyssey for my growing kids, I can relate!
