According to Toyota, over the last 30 years the company has sold a staggering 9 million Camry models in the United States. In other words, practically everyone has had some experience with Toyota's ever-popular mid-sizer. Toyota wants to explore how those figures have impacted the world around us with a new advertising campaign. "The Camry Effect" aims to figure out exactly how many visitors to the company's web site have interacted with the sedan over the years.

Toyota is collecting stories about Camry owners and their adventures behind the wheel of the four-door. If you drove your parent's Camry to college, took one across country or otherwise enjoyed some time behind the wheel during a pivotal moment in your life, Toyota wants to hear from you. Head over to The Camry Effect site to share your story and answer a few questions about your experience with the Camry nameplate. Hit the jump to take a look at the campaign's introductory video.

      Very little... I am amazed at how many people own them when they have an average interior, average body style and average power. But Toyota once had made a statement that American's like vanilla... and the sales of the Camry show that.

      The only Toyota I have ever even been in was a friends Celica in high school. It looked like a space ship but I wouldn't have minded having one!

      The Camry Effect: To make a driver so completely disinterested in driving, or anything automotive, that they are unable to bring their cars to a stop.

      My Camry Effect: Bought a new Camry... Drove my kids to school... washed it on weekends.. great gas mileage.. comfy and quit. Enjoyed every minute behind the wheel of my shiny gold Camry. Life was great. Then..... It took off on it's own...... my heel was stuck under the unsecured floor mat...... I weaved in and out of traffice at 120 mph. the steering wheel came off.....my pie pan hup caps flew off like missles and decapitated 2 elderly women and 1 CubScout. It finally came to a firey crash into a Suburban filled with nuns. All in a day's work for the ever boring Camry. Then end,........... Oh, one time at band camp I ............

      The Camry effect? You mean that strange numbing sensation between the ears and the peculiar feeling that your soul has been depleted?

      The Camry effect, because getting from point A to point B is excitement enough.

      The Camry Effect: Eyes narrowing, hair on the back of my neck rising, pulse quickening. The most basic instinct of self-preservation telling me to keep a safe distance, fear and loathing. Not for what it is: a well built, dead reliable, comfortable family sedan; but because of what it stands for: the lack of desire for driving enjoyment, the complacency in the fact that spontaneous fun is not within grasp and the resignation to being assimilated into the mindless gridlock of anonymous transportation devices. Going down without a fight.
