Dan Gifford Presents Two Fun New Spots for Toyota

The ads show how Toyota's new Touch 2 system can help in unexpected ways

Dan Gifford Presents Two Fun New Spots for Toyota

76 has two fun packed episodes of light-hearted comedy for you, starring the odd but perfect couple Dexter and Sophie.

Dexter is a textbook nerd, Sophie a stunning bombshell. When they meet on their blind date things are not promising. However their winning personalities, aided and abetted by the genius of the Toyota Touch 2 system, soon put things on a more positive footing. That said, there are still some bumpy moments along the way, involving nudism, rock climbing and shameless theft from a wedding ceremony. Enjoy.

The second, film, 'Anniversary', can be viewed on Dan Gifford's website here.

Dan says: 

"I had a blast making these spots with the team at Saatchi & Saatchi. I knew from the moment they approved the casting of Dexter that they wanted to make something a little out of the ordinary. It felt much more like making improvised comedy shorts than regular TV commercials. Such fun."
