Toyota of my dreams? Um, sure Jan. Sure.


I imagined myself in a new Toyota once.  The image didn't hold my interest for more than a few seconds.  Probably because....I was imagining myself in a Toyota.

And I don't know why this commercial changes subjects and begins to talk about the "car of my dreams" later on.  Wait- does Jan say "the Toyota of my dreams?"  Um, I'm pretty sure there's no such thing.  If there's a "Toyota of my dreams," there's also a "peanut butter sandwich of my dreams" and a "skim milk of my dreams" and a "ball point pen of my dreams."  

I mean, come on.  If there's a Toyota of your dreams, you traded your dreams a long time ago for the bland comfort of Lowered Expectations.  It's nice that your dreams are so reachable, I guess.  I sometimes really enjoy a good peanut butter sandwich, too. 


  1. I love that I came across your blog lol. I thought I was the only person who complained about how horrible TV ads are. When I was a kid I used to fall asleep during the tv show and wake up and watch the commercials and I went to college for marketing and advertising although didn't do anything with that. I even started a blog of my own stated back in the day with the original Flo ads but like my 9/11 blog it was short lived haha. Can't wait to see more

  2. Toyota is not the type of car your typical "car people" would ever gravitate toward.
    It's purely a "no frills" type of car for those who actually need a vehicle for their own personal transportation. No-one in real life would ever get "excited" over such a bland pragmatic car the way they might over some fancy monster overkill pickup or "trendy" in-vogue style SUV---or fancy trendy upper-echelon luxury type vehicle.
    Toyota is purely plebeian, not a "vehicle sensation of the year".
