"They're right," quipped an American car executive,"no one in their right mind wants to stand in front of them!"
As the Toyota commercials flooded the air waves this past week, you couldn't turn on the TV without seeing a glowing Toyota commercial. People of every age, race, creed, national origin, and sexual orientation spoke on camera of their un-dying love for their Toyota cars.
"I love my Toyota car so much," said a breathless teenager, "I am taking it to the prom," she paused, "as my date."
An affluent older gentleman is seen on camera saying, "I would rather drive my Prius to the Zip Mart than play eighteen holes at Pebble Beach."
An African Amerian gentleman was asked by the on camera announcer if he liked his Prius. "I would rather have it than be President," he answered. "Thanks Barack," said the announcer.
As the commercials flooded the airwaves, it seemed as though all of America loved Toyota's, whether they owned one or not. On Sunday morning a commercial was aired during the religious programming featuring a minister saying to his flock, "Love thy Toyota, as you would love thyself."
In related news, reports and video clips are being seen around the country showing long lines of cars and trucks behind slow moving Toyota's. A truck driver was asked by a reporter at a rest stop in Indiana, why the long lines? He replied, "You sure as hell don't want to get in front of one of those puppies. The dude puts the pedal to the metal on Interstate 90 and it would be like NASCAR on steroids. Not me, man!"
