Click above to see the Blue Man Group play around with the 2010 Prius

Now it begins to make sense: The previous performance art video teasers for the 2010 Prius were made up largely of edited shots from this teaser, with the Blue Man Group restored to its place. This one doesn't make any more or less sense than the previous videos, and there isn't much more to see, but it does offer a couple of chuckles. We would love to see how far you get with that eyedropper, though. Follow the jump to check out the video and see what we mean. Hat tip to reader Jerry!

      wtf... and that boomerang? Toyota should take lessons from Audi on marketing.

      Toyota just cannot design a decent looking vehicle. They either copy, or just go for the curved surfaces that lead to sharp lines randomly with no logic or flow.

      I wouldn't be so bothered by the design if it was so it could get even BETTER mileage, but it'll get WORSE than the Volt.

      Toyota, you'll always be known for more 'efficient' manufacturing and building of vehicles, but you'll NEVER be known for passion and design. Oh, and in the offroad community, you'll forever be known as the company that never fixed the body ripping on the FJ Cruiser.

      I can't believe I sat through 3 minutes and 31 seconds of the most boring ad with the most boring car ever produced. I can never get that 3:31 minutes back.
      Maybe I was hoping for more information such as, the true cost of owning this piece of engineering garbage compared to a normal car that does'nt look like a cheese wedge.

        Fatima,
        calling a Prius "good looking" is like saying Roseanne Barr or Rosie O'donnel could be the stars of a Victoria Secret show.

      So...does Prius still harm the environment more than Hummer? Or did they manage to find toxic nickel somewhere in Japan? Pointless car if you ask me. Sure, it sells because of bandwagoners who jumped on Prius to look green, but they are too dumb to look past the gas consumption and claims by Toyota.

        Please... not that CNW Marketing Research HUMMER/Prius "study" again. It's been debunked many times from people on both the "green" and "non-green" sides, and even CNW had to retract it. And even GM (the maker of HUMMER) won't cite it in HUMMER marketing.

      A stupid video promoting a stupid car.

      This commercial brought to mind Wall-E for me. I dunno, trying to stop global warming with a mass-produced mass-consumer product...

      ...I know, if you're out to buy a brand new car this might be the most environmentally-sound alternative in many ways, but you're still adding more sheetmetal, more stuff to throw away to a junkyard.

      Personally, I like Ford's approach better. Using recycled materials for interior upholstery and other doodads (as in the Ford Escape) is a far better way to help the environment than just using less gas a la the Prius.

      I would buy a Ford Escape Hybrid over this, any day of the week.

      Every time something new comes out about the Prius the haters come out of the wood work. What I would like to here from you people is what you do like that gets 45 miles per gallon and has real world functionality. All you ever do is bag on Toyota without giving alternatives. This car is a game changer whether you like it or not. But I guess moving away from being at the mercy of countries like Russia, Iran, Venezuela, and Saudi Arabia are of no interest to you American car loving people. Oil sucks and any that uses less of it is a good thing.

      Love most of the interior,except steering wheel.

      Blue Man Group is so 1995.
      • 6 Years Ago
      How I wonder how much the Prius can go on a few drops of gas? 100 miles?
