GT86 commercial: This Is How Your Wife Reacts When You Buy a Toyota GT 86

We've seen commercials before in which the car is depicted as a toy for a boy. But this ad, celebrating the white trash car, is not just that. If you buy it as a man you'll not only have a midlife crisis, you'll also have an instant relationship crisis. What a brilliant (online) film, quickly switching between the aesthetics of real men riding their horsepowers and the hysteria of their other halves, using the hidden -- but staged -- camera trend. The two scenes alternating are so extremely different from each other that the ad doesn't look like anything else and turns this Toyota GT86 into a poignantly attractive object. It was created by Happiness Brussels, produced by Caviar, directed by Arnaud Uyttenhove, and shot by Dimitri Karakatsanis.

I fucking loved that!

Reminds me of my first wife when I bought my first new Integra GS. It was a loaded 4 dr M5 ''96 and she wanted me to get a new Grand Prix 4 dr instead.

Current wife likes the Twin. She was going to dress up as an FR-S on Haloween to get more attention!

That was awesome and sad at the same time. I can totally understand the frustration on the part of the wives (financial planning with your SO ftw), but the feeling of driving this car makes me not care about money at all.

A bold and awesome commercial for sure.

Awesome comercial!

Its like me driving, only on snow.. And the dude hanging out the window with that big grin on his face. Its like the combination of the smile on my mouth and my "inside smile".
Can relate to this.
Im glad I don't have a wife. A buddy of mine would so like to have this car. But aint gonna happen thanks to wife and priorities.

Who needs a wife anyway. You can have the best of both worlds. GT86 and a girl on the side.

RaceR, I want to go driving with you some time

Part of me wants to say "Amen! Single people unite! :happy0180:" and another part of me wants to point out that a lucky few do manage to pick their spouses well and have the best of both. Case in point is Peter Egan who writes articles for Road&Track about a constant stream of project cars, wonderful road trips and car shows, all with the support and participation of his wife, Barb.

Nice, belgian commercial? (they spoke Dutch and French)
Btw, I've noticed that the same car has been used on other reviews/preview videos. I've seen the license plate on the car (1-DGS-xxx) before

The little girl is great; I'm always amazed when I see a young child who can act

Interesting. In that case it's probably a press fleet car, but I would have thought they'd use a pristine car for commercials

Women are such hypocrites. They spend shittons of money on jewelry, and clothes, and a bunch of other crap, and when they buy a car without telling us we have to put up with it. But when we buy something for ourselves, they get really mad.

WTF?
