Toyota has finally pulled the wraps off its all-new 2012 Camry, and the marketing machine is now in full swing. The automaker is hitting the virtual airwaves with a trio of commercials highlighting its newest midsize sedan, as well as Toyota's love for NASCAR. Kyle Busch helps out with some smoky burnouts, high-speed driving and general information about the Camry Hybrid, and yes, that does seem a bit incongruous.

The first spot posted after the jump is titled "Electrified", and shows the NASCAR Camry turning donuts before being hit with some electricity and turning into a Camry Hybrid. The other two showcase Busch showing off for the camera. We can only hope no police were on the scene...

Hop the jump to check out Toyota's first three commercials for the 2012 Camry.

      These commercials do an amazing job showcasing that the Camry is a FWD and totally different from their NASCAR 'Camry'. You even have a scene where the front-wheels burn out after Kyle Busch finishes doing donuts in the NASCAR vehicle.

      I like the one where they smoke the tires of the normal one. I know there's lots of 'yota hate here and especially Cam/Rola hate but this car looks better than the one before and I'm pretty sure it's going to sell well. I suspect that forward swept chin spoiler only looks ugly eye-to-eye which you won't ever see unless you're a photographer, a kid, or you're changing the tires. The Hybrid and V6 look better to me though, design wise.

      Wow, that Camry roadcar is light-years ahead of the Camry NASCAR. PS: V8 Supercars Australia, what NASCAR should have been if it continued evolving. http://www.v8supercars.com.au/

        "PS: V8 Supercars Australia, what NASCAR should have been if it continued evolving." Couldn't agree more!!

      So what I know from NASCAR, is that the Camry on the dealer lot, and the Camry that can only turn one direction, share one thing in common.... The wheels are round

      well... the first video made me wonder about something then the second video answered my question.... yepp.. its still a front wheel drive car:D lol. How the hell they came up with this? Putting an RWD sport car and an FWD eco sedan together?????

      In the 2nd commercial, did I see the touch screen work with gloves on?? Anyway, I liked these spots, and the new Camry looks like it has more presence. I'm not the target demographic for this car, but I'm just glad to see Toyota has their A game on.

      God knows I Love NASCAR but they should clarify the transfer of tech from the sprint cup car and the street car. maybe it's the engine components or maybe it's the aero work? Love the commercials though and gotta admit they appeal to me although I'm a JR fan... Yes I know that should be Impossible.

      Toyota makes the most boring cars in the world and the Camry is one of my top 5 boring cars. Toyota should also be ashamed for building cars with such crappy interiors!

      This new Camry is going to sell like hot cakes, I have now talked to 7 different people that say they'll buy one as soon as it comes out, and only 2 have ever owned a Toyota before (coincidently both were Camrys).

        The Camry has always been a goldmine for Toyota.
