Has anyone noticed the television ads for the Highlander from Toyota, with the little blonde haired boy about 6 or 7? He says that unless parents buy this car, they aren't cool, and parents dont need to be lames. So be cool, parents, dont be lames and spend on a highlander so your kid can be proud that his parents drive a cool car with cartoon piped into the back seat, and arent lames.
I wrote toyota and told them they couldnt pay me to drive that car, and the ad stinks. I also said that someone was a lame, but it wasn't this parent. Pull the brat, I'm sure I am not the only parent who resents it.
If you feel the same way email toyota and let them know.
Is this the one with the station wagon? I thought it really sent a bad message to kids.
I've seen a couple different versions of this commercial--the station wagon is the second one, I think.
I agree--I can't stand these commercials, and can't believe that they actually said those things on there.
It's not the little boy's fault, though, he's just a little guy who's saying what he was told to say!
Right on! I have a petition online to pressure Toyota to take the ads off the air at http://toyotaislame.com I hope you'll sign it too!
In Australia we have a different version.
The little boy is singing On The Road Again into a toy microphone. I have to say that the only problem that I have with the advertisement, is the fact that they let the kid sing!
I have a working remote control for the television. When an advertisement comes on that I find questionable or offensive, I simply change the channel.

I'm getting a small SUV, and I've pretty much narrowed it down to the 2010 Escape or the 2009 Highlander. Both fully loaded. The only difference is the Escape doesn't come with heated seats. The difference if $5,000 in the favor of the Escape. I'm going to check out the Escape today, but as of now...

In the TV world of advertising I know we are surrounded by morons who care little for truth or fact but am I the only one that thinks the latest Argos advertisement is a step too far away from reality ? Unless you haven’t seen it, it shows a lone Walrus sitting on the open ice when two...
