Toyota typically doesn't go out of its way to be creative when advertising its cars for sale in the U.S. (Saved by Zero, anyone?), but that doesn't mean the Japanese automaker lacks a sense of humor. Toyota's new commercial for the Australian-spec Corolla hatchback contains bi-pedal kittens kicking ass Jackie Chan-style. The 45-second spot is a bit creepy on all counts, and could definitely use some kung fu sound effects. We're trying to figure out who the target audience is for this puss-tastic commercial, because the Corolla-driving heroin basically beats up a bunch of cat-people, takes their fish and drives off. Maybe the Pet Smart crowd has a lot of pent-up feelings towards sardines. Follow the jump to see the action-packed feline film for yourself and venture a guess as to what Toyota was going for in the comments. Thanks for the tip, everyone!

      So more night rider episodes were ordered...and no one even looked at the script for Corolla ninja cats.

      On a (semi) serious note, this was pretty awesome, I hope they have more from where that came from.

      Oh boy... Kitty Power Rangers. Either that or Corolla is a car for puss--- well, you know where I'm going. I don't need to say it.

      What is the street value of that Corolla-driving heroin?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I've never seen a hatch Corolla. When the car is in the shadows backing up, it looked like a Golf/Rabbit.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That is largely due to the fat C pillar. The Golf/Rabbit is one of the few hatches that doesn't stick some sort of small window behind the rear door windows.

        I really like the look of the Corolla hatch. The Matrix has too funky of a front end. The Corolla is a sedan (hatches FTW). This is basically the Auris in Europe, which is rather stylish.

      whoa, that Corolla 5-door actually looks pretty nice and clean compared to the Matrix.

      That's "heroine," not "heroin."

      (I assume.)

        I wish i had some of that stuff for before and after I saw this mess.
        • 6 Years Ago
        No, I think that was a hint, as in "What were they on?"
