Last time I saw Melanie, I told her it’s been a while since I’ve seen a car commercial that’s caught my attention. That is, until today, when I discovered “Advanced World” for Toyota (Saatchi & Saatchi, Italy) on adsoftheworld.com, one of my favorite ad sites.
The first thing I was attracted to was the music, and then the colors, and then the couple… and then, the cars. While I’m not a car junkie like Melanie, a good chunk of my month is spent driving. When a car company speaks to me, I listen.

I certainly believe, as many ads like this suggest, that a more advanced world is a better world, and as the only copy in the ad reads: “no world will be truly advanced if automobile technology goes unchanged.”
Thanks Toyota, for the inspiration, your high-tech motivation and an ad that caught my attention. Keep ‘em coming!
