Advert review: Toyota, Unbreakable Drivers

I was browsing AdsOfTheWorld and came across this advert by Toyota. It simulates drivers going through all kinds of hazardous situations to earn themselves a Toyota Hilux.  I have to admit, I love the advert, not just because it is about a Hilux, but the emotional feeling you get at the end of the advert.

When the guy cries upon receiving the keys to the Hilux, it is comically disheartening. We are used to the “actor” showing emotions after passing the hard test. Sadly, for this Hilux-owner wannabe, no emotions are allowed.

Watch the video and enjoy.

Is that really Saka?

I know many people who consider the MTN “I don port” advert a masterpiece. I tend to agree with them. A masterpiece and a creative coup.

 

Moving on. The guy wearing green. A lot of people have made reference to the rival network (Etisalat) whom Hafiz Oyetoro worked with as the network MTN made reference to. And I know that the networks, despite wanting subscribers to port, will still want to avoid any legal issues, however irrelevant. Lots of people tend to agree that the cloth was actually yellow but lighting was used to make it look green.

I think (and believe) that the guy in green (actually, green and not a lighting effect) isnt Hafiz.
