    There's also a 30 second shortened version on the page...

    So, how do you all like it? Similar to the original campaign when the Gen III came out with the people and all. Do you like this one better and disliked the original, dislike both, etc?

    Weird. Is it supposed to sell cars or just creep you out?

    I thought it a bit odd, but not creepy.

    I'd imagine they're all off to work to afford such a large house.

    You stole the words right out of my mouth - - - or in the case of the commercial, maybe you stole the words right out of my legs.
    :lol:

    meah, once I saw the PHEV (with solar sun roof - SHWEEET) at the end of the thing, I sort of settled down.

    The face was the creepiest part for me. It was quite creative though and I liked seeing all of the cars including the 'c' concept.

    I think there's a consensus on the opinion of the commercial... wonder what public reception will be once it hits our TVs?

    I'd be curious how the "production" C will compare to that prototype?

    I was definitely creeped out! If that is what the Prius c is going to look like then I'm going to stop modding my car so I can't buy it!

    I was a bit creeped out, too.

    But I don't like puppets in general or anything that looks like them.

    Toyota ain't gonna win any advertising awards anytime soon, I'm convinced. But as long as they can make and sell good cars - that's all that matters.

    Blame Saatchi & Saatchi for this one, not Toyota specifically.

    Isn't the Marketing department ultimately responsible for hiring advertising agencies and approving any commercials produced?
