Toyota marketing... at its finest

My apologizes if this has been posted on here already.. I swear, I used the search function and all!! haha

Anywayz..

Did anyone see this new Anime web series that Toyota is putting out (along with Studio 4C, for all the anime fans on here)?


I thought that it was pretty neat, and a wonderful form of advertising that caters to a large audience without being patronizing.

I wanna say I've seen something similar before from a car company, but I can't remember which...

Thought some of ya's might like this, and I figured I'd contribute something with one of my first threads. Glad to be on board - can't wait to afford my FR-S...(est. 1.5 years) :happy0180:

Cheers!
-A

Weird... it seems like its going to be one of those go green and save the earth marketing campaigns, but with a twist of aliens.

It is anime so anything goes, right?

Didn't Subaru do this like 2 or 3 years ago? I remember a thread on here about it. Bunch of witch girls that rode brooms that had Subaru grille shapes on the ends. And I think the lead character's name was Subaru.

They have the Subaru emblem on their magic wand, and I think each wand represents different Subaru JDM cars. Ichi mentioned that there were some Otaku actually bought Subaru cars because of that anime.

Back on topic, if you zoom to 2:01, do you see a greenish GT-86 front? Even though at later the video a green hatchback was shown in the side view, I caught this frame just by accident. (Has to scroll back several time to see it... though)

Well Honda already tried the power of dreams. Given the current Civic, don't know how that's working out for them...

Gosh, that reminds me of a saying heard in Disney land (Epcot I believe): what is the renewable energy that never ends?










Creative thoughts!! Our future cars will be powered by our mind.

All right, I understand Toyota is trying to attract the attention of younger people, but they're clearly exaggerating...
