No, really – this is how Toyota chooses to pitch minivans these days? By having the family pictured in the Sienna ads rap? Badly? This ad is like watching a train wreck; you want to look away, but somehow morbid fascination compels you to watch as douche chills run down your spine.
Minivans are like the boring house with the white picket fence in suburbia; you don’t buy them because they’re your dream, you buy them to serve a purpose. A minivan, no matter how optioned out it may be, isn’t a “swagger wagon”. It is a multifunctional conveyance that transports people and associated goods from Point A to Point B with a minimal amount of fuss. If you’re a driver, piloting one is a sentence, not a privilege.
You’ll either like the vid and get a laugh, or feel compelled to smother everyone involved in its production with a pillow. Sound off, yo? Or just tell me what you think.
