New Toyota Prius Commercial: Creepy And Mesmerizing

Toyota's begun advertising for it's latest Jesus-mobile, the 2010 Toyota Prius, with a spot called "Harmony." The commercial, designed to show the symbolic connection between nature and automobiles is mesmerizing and creepy.


It's one of those 'high concept disguised behind something cool' commercials and to the untrained eye, it just looks like people taking the place of nature, moving in concert to look like grass and water and trees and the like. To the creators it's symbolic of the connection between nature and automobiles and people. Whatever, it looks neat, even though in reality the new Prius will happily consume your soul with its blandness. [via Youtube]

I'm punching babies and barbequing kittens right now.

Idiots. The Prius is not green. It saves gas and that's it. Nickel is nasty stuff to mine.


Hell, according to this, my Mustang is more environmentally friendly on a lifecycle basis than the fucking Prius.
