Toyota Jan Returns to Promote Toyota 1 for Everyone Sales Event
This month, Toyota is launching its 1 for Everyone sales event, which is pretty self-explanatory. In essence, it claims that there’s a Toyota out there for everyone. (Though, if I can be objective for just a moment, last year Toyota only sold 2.5 million vehicles in the US, which is slightly less than the 320 million people living here in the States—so that whole 1:1 ratio might be a tad off. But I’m no mathematician.)
With this new campaign comes something that every perverted old man with a TV and some time on his hands enjoys—new Toyota Jan commercials. Yes, for some reason, Laurel Coppock’s Toyota Jan inspires something in the hearts of many men, as evidenced by the frequent off-color comments often left on her unofficial Facebook page. But for the rest of us less creepy TV watchers, Toyota Jan’s commercials still provide some good laughter.
…but seriously, some of these men are a little much on Facebook. Just read some of those comments.
Anyway, onto the actual commercials…
Watch: Toyota Jan in “Has a Posse”
The first of the three new ads I scrounged up is called “Has a Posse,” in which a woman brings “everyone” to the Toyota 1 for Everyone event. It inspires some fast talking from Toyota Jan that could give the “fine print” at the end of radio ads a run for its money.
Watch: Toyota Jan in “SOUND SYSTEM”
The second ad called “SOUND SYSTEM” specifically targets potential Corolla shoppers and men who dream of picking up Toyota Jan in their safe and affordable sedan for a hot night out on the town.
Watch: Toyota Jan in “Backup Camera”
The third and final ad I managed to stumble across is called “Backup Camera” and instead focuses on the Camry. In it, Toyota Jan tells a teenage girl what to expect of her father’s ridiculous behavior for the next “10 or 15 years.” Jan knows what she’s talking about—she is a mom, after all.

He has been covering the auto industry for years, with several national auto shows under his belt, but he’s been writing about lots of other things (like dragons and Mickey Mouse and cows drowning in milk) since he was just a tot. Outside of the land of cars, Timothy enjoys watching The Office and consuming excessive amounts of peanut butter and beer, and is on the board of an up-and-coming Dayton theatre company called The Playground. And when he’s not on stage (or three jars into a peanut butter binge), Timothy spends time with his mischievous dog, Greyson. See more articles by Timothy.
