lol. I think they are hilarious. Joe public will eat this up.














Or it will fail miserably, but I think it's a good start. My only objection is where they try and claim "what happens on the track goes into the camry hybrid" .......

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHaHahaHAHAHhaHAHAhHA.... nice one Kyle.

Certainly, these ads are not meant for the Blue States.


The Toyota Camry has always been the punchline for numb driving dynamics. These ads attempt to disprove the generalization.


Sorry, kids: The Tooth Fairy ain't real!!! Your Camry is not RWD nor Nascar ready.

Contrary to a lot of public perception, racing is not limited to Red states by any means. There are major tracks/road courses at Mid-Ohio, Pocono, PA, Watkins-Glen, NY, Michigan International Raceway, and Buttonwillow, CA. And the greatest track of all (Indianapolis) is in a state that is now considered purple...an even mixture of blue and red.

I think they're good - attention grabbing, edgy and funny. I especially like the last one.

Very entertaining videos. I like the banking video. Now everyone is going to try that in their TCH.


And this...

Best one is the "Electrified" one. Pretty clever. But the overall performance image for the Camry is all smoke and mirrors.

This reminds me of that Volvo "Naughty" campaign. Don't like it at all.

as I said before in the other thread, buyers who are buying Camry dont think it is boring blandomobile.

And V6 SE is probably good driving and certainly very fast, I dont think there is something like that in competitors stables.

Not sure why some people don't like these.

They're all good and are just an in-your-face way of saying a new Camry is out.

forgot about that... although SE has been tested faster, consistently, and this new one is lighter and probably better handling.

Accord V6 too. It's gotten bigger over the years, but has always had decent driving dynamics for the segment.
