Just when you thought TV commercials couldn’t get any weirder, examples like this crop up. Toyota is currently marketing the crap out of its newest eco-friendly vehicle, the RAV4 Hybrid. First, we saw X-Men actor James Marsden become an honorary lumberjack, and now the automaker has released a second commercial in the series wherein Marsden joins a wolf pack in order to survive.

In the commercial, James Marsden drives his Toyota RAV4 to a snowy, desolate, mountainous area where he hangs out to marvel at the sensational view. Unfortunately for him, a pack of wolves appears on the scene and looks at him menacingly. In order to survive, Marsden joins the wolf pack—running with them, taking them for a ride in his fancy RAV4 Hybrid, and even (weirdly) nursing their young. Eventually, he manages to escape and drives off, leaving the pack to fend for themselves.

This commercial gives you a lot to think about. How can James Marsen run as fast as a pack of wolves (approximately 25 to 35 mph when chasing prey)? How did he manage to get them in his RAV4 without them freaking out? And, most importantly, how was he able to nurse the young without the ability to lactate? Perhaps these questions will be answered in Toyota’s next RAV4 commercial.

    He doesn’t nurse the young…. that’s when he bugs out of there. Personally I like this commercial as it shows wolves not as bloodthirsty demons.

      But wolves ARE bloodthirsty demons Susan!

    this commercial is one of the most discusting comercials out in awhile. first of all wolves are not people friendly, they would rather be in thier own pack. and the part of him nursing thier young, with what i say and that grimace in the end, whats that all about. if i was even remotely thinking about buying a car it sure wouldnt be one of these. shame on you all. nursing young is only for the female of all species, animal and human. colleen

      But it’s a commercial. You know how they say “you can’t believe everything you see on tv”? This is one of those times.

      Is this how you react to shows like “Super Natural” or “Heroes”?

      • Nameless

        Do those shows have baby animals suckling on men?

        If not, then why would anyone react to normal science fiction?

    So he nurses his young…how exactly? Because his nipples are covered and he’s enjoying the ‘nursing’ a bit too much.

    This commercial is rather disgusting if they’re implying what they are implying.

  • stupid commercial
