In the latest Prius family commercial by Toyota, actual actors, loads of computer animation and a miniature set combine to create the illusion of a Godzilla-sized man made of people. He then steps out of his house to find that his Toyota Prius has morphed into four vehicles: a regular Prius, Prius Plug-In. This is the end of Mr. People Person, as he quickly disintegrates, leaving only his size-bazillion shoes and a bunch of little people behind.

Toyota's narrative behind its Prius People Person ad states:
Not long ago, there was one model of Prius for everyone to share. But now that one Prius has become a family: There's one for everyone. There's the original one, the bigger one, the smaller one and the one that plugs in. They're all a little different, just like us.
We'd say the spot makes sense conceptually, but it's a bit over the top, and creepy to boot. See it for yourself after the jump and let the disintegration begin.

      Yeah, it's creepy. While the effect is of a man, it's of a man you might expect to see arrested for shooting kids who kept playing on his lawn after being told not to. There are also a lot of people in the video in some rather, uhm... interesting positions to say the least. Hope everyone bathed well.

      Seriously - I cannot even BEAR to watch this commercial. Whenever it comes on I literally have to turn away from the TV. Toyota, your other Prius commercial was INCREDIBLE, the one with the landscapes, but I beg of you, please consider tanking this current commercial as my 7-year-old and 10-year-old are already having nightmares. Not cool.

      My husband and I both have agreed to shout "close your eyes"!! If either of us see this disgusting commercial come on, so that we are not haunted by how disturbing is.

      This is the most demonic looking character. I can not imagine this being allowed to be shown on Prime Time TV where children of all ages are seeing this. Being creative is a wonderful attribute, but this should not be accepted. Please consider removing the ad.

        I don't know. Was it necessary to make an account just so you can troll and only post negative comments towards Toyota?

          No, Caddy V, it's called majority rule. That is how a democracy works.

      I like it!! Innovative. It at least grabs your attention, which is the intent of the commercial

      Freaking weird. Makes me want a Prius even less, if that was possible.

      Oh and another thing... name one car manufacturer with a lower average TCO (total cost of ownership) over the entire vehicle line up than Toyota. Awesome design and rock solid reliability.

        Please stop spamming your website. You're just adding to the useless spam bots on AB already. It's annoying.
