Is that car sitting on lowering springs?

Looks about an inch shorter than stock.

Also pretty cool visuals, but the concept behind that ad is incredibly lame.

@Wise yeah it's definitely lower than stock. I agree it's not very clever and pretty cheesy, the doves flying out are funny though and the girl is smokin hot so I'm okay with it

This is what happens when 40 year olds try to market a car to 20 year olds.

Pretty much.

THIS is how you sell the car to motoring enthusiasts.

These are more of the kind of commercials the FR-S needs. Even the initial commercials in North America were not bad. 30 seconds of curvy roads, revving engines, and drifts.

Scion please leave the cheesy kids commercials for the tC or xB.

Joint effort.

Bay provided the explosions. John Woo lent them his white doves.
