It's 100 percent real, nothing has been altered. Notice the cons? The disclaimer at the bottom (if you can see them)? I think this is as truthful as Toyota's gonna get.

I think I would have used something other than "ugly", but regardless, cool ad and VERY fitting of the vehicle and market.

Yeah? You read the fine print?

Vehicle shown may not be drivable, under warranty, or street legal.

What a bunch of 'tards.

The ad is working as it might have been intended.

It IS effective, never mind the small print.

Really? Was Toyota's intention to have a bunch of GM enthusiasts who would never buy the 'box it came in' laugh their asses off at the hillarity of showcasing a gussied up version of a car you can't buy in place of the actual big 5-door Golf-looking thing they sell?

In which case, bravo, Toyo!

The xb above is as cool as the class nerd with a brand new pocket protector.

Why not show what it's usually decked out as: a rolling billboard fleet sale?

Are you serious in that this is real? :blink:

Oh, it's real.

I found it on Deviantart. There's also another one where the word "hate" (oh, yeah, because Scion thinks they're really Hardcore, uh-huh) is being flipped upside down, etc.
