Apparently, the world's population of talking frogs have turned their allegiance from Budweiser and are now shilling for Ford of Australia. At least, those that haven't been smashed into great green globs of greasy, grimy cane toad guts.

Let's set the scene: A pair of Australian cane toads – the species, native to Central and South America, was imported into Australia in an unsuccessful attempt to control Beetle populations – are having a nighttime chat on a random road somewhere in Oz. The subject matter ranges from the tastiness and arousing properties of the toads' own back secretions to the velocity with which a four-cylinder car can travel. In this case, the car is powered by one of Ford's turbocharged EcoBoost engines.

And then... disaster strikes. It's certainly an odd advertisement, but at least it's unique. Oh, and if you're a member of PETA, you might want to look away. See for yourself by scrolling down below.

      I watched a documentary in college about cane toads in Australia. People swerve just to run over them and they make a nice popping noise which you can hear in the commercial. Unfortunately Aussies can't kill them fast enough so they're really causing some damage over they're.

      Hilarious. Fantastic ad right up to the point where the car drives by at about 15 mph. But I love the dialog. PETA? What? CGI? Hello 1999.

      I'm not even Australian and can tell you this a great commercial compared to the crap we have here in the states, with that Swap Your Ride Mike Rowe yawn fest. Yeah it's bit of dark humor, but it gets the point across. Bunch of pansies can't stand to watch a CGI frog get run down in the name of horsepower. This commercial is educational (learn about a frog species), entertaining (seeing a frog get high off his own poison), and full of dark humor at the end (seeing Ralphy get run down).

      Yup, looks about right. A commercial that appeals to the mentality of a Ford customer, low. PS: that didn't sound anything like a 4-cylinder engine passing by, more like a 6 or 8. Thumbs down to the sound mixer for that one.

          Well that's what it sounds like dohc73. I'm sure they did lots with exhaust and timing etc to make it sound beefier than normal small car 4cyl's, but that's how it sounds.
