Not really sure what exactly Toyota was trying to achieve here... :-? And yes, that's a male model :-?

The second one is even better. I have no idea what was being said but the visuals make it clear, that drink will make you pwn kids...LIKE A BOSS.

The text at the end (常識に尻を向ける) means "turn your back on common sense." Not that you needed to text to understand the add.

Well, I do understand the Ad (kind of), however if I were an owner of Auris I don't think I would want to associate my car with what looks to be a gay male model... Now if it would've been a more attractive (with nice pair of breasts) shemale model I probably wouldn't mind it :wink:

Betraying expectations is an interpetation of the video title.

Yeah. I kind of thought they were going for the whole "Free yourself from conventions" thing. Still the add is at least moderately disturbing.

I laughed out loud when I saw the "Suntory" label on the BOSS Coffee can at the end of the vid.

"For a relaxing time, make it Suntory time". Looks like Tommy Lee is the real-life Bill Murray...
