It seems as if Toyota has completely abandoned the notion of selling cars based on performance and features…all of their commercials are about salesmen doing odd things or guys tossing Blackberries and toupees out of minivans. And then there’s the one that came on just now, in which a daughter askes mom how her new boyfriend “is”. Yikes.
This is either complete idiocy or complete confidence…and given Toyota’s reputation, I’m inclined to think that it’s the latter. It’s tough to question their credentials, so it would seem that they think it’s better to just keep their name out there. And hey, even if I think the commercials are silly, I do remember them.
Hey, I’m writing about them now, aren’t I?
