Great Commercials/Our Cars--"Connections"
The first time I saw this commercial, my first thought was, "Toyota's ad agency filmed an 'Our Cars' post."
You may recall that we at Car Lust once proclaimed the 1990-1994 Toyota Camry as the most boring car in the world--not because we thought it was a bad car, but because they're common as bugs, rock solid, and blessed with metronomic dependability. In consequence, Camry ownership is devoid of the sort of (usually) entertaining mechanical misadventures and (usually) endearing deficiencies that we often mistake for refer to here as "character."
That also means that there are literally millions of Camrys out there, and millions of people who, like those in the commercial, were driving a Camry at a memorable time in their lives. If the association is a positive one, that alone can make even the most boringly beige Camry into an object of Car Lust.
May it ever be so.
