Just saw the Toyota commercial
« on: December 06, 2017, 12:27:16 PM »
Nice video from Toyota, very classy and tugs at the heart strings.  Turning a fallen tree into live edge furniture.



We saw it this morning while having our morning coffee.  My wife turned to me and said "That makes me want to buy a Toyota truck."  I answered back, "We already have a nice truck, I want to buy that trailer!"

We'll see how that works out...

P.S. Sorry if someone already posted this video.  I looked in the forum and didn't see it.

Toyota understands you don't need millions of dollars, special effects, action, or political correctness to make a great commercial for a good product.

Two thumbs up.

When I watch the evening news, there are tons of car/truck commercials, usually repeating twice each break.  I mute them because they are so annoying. 

This is a commercial I would watch every time it airs.  But, sadly, it won't run in its full length for very long - it will get chopped down (no pun intended) to 30 seconds.

that is a STIHL chainsaw and STIHL/Logrite cant hooks  at :23.  And we are both sponsors.
If they used our RiteLegs that would have been even better!
