Looking for a new car? This new 30-second spot for the Toyota Auris will catch your attention.
It could probably never be shown here in the United States. Which is tragic.
The best TV commercials ever produced have never been seen here. My favorite commercials are from Japan. So it’s no surprise that I’m in love with this one.
Is it pornographic? Hardly. Will you remember it? Certainly?
Not that sex does’t sell – and Japanese television commercial-makers know this. Look at what they did for McDonald’s.
Or, would you drink Diet Pepsi if you saw this?
Some things may be lost in translation.
So sayeth the StickMonkey.
