Cheeky Toyota Ad Turning Heads

Check out the Toyota car ad for the 2012 Auris, aka Corolla.

Go ahead and watch it...  I'll continue after...

Pretty ballsy, eh?

Topless woman in the ad - small-breasted, but she looks hot, right?

Only she's a he.

Meet Stav Strashko, a 19-year-old model who happens to be transgender. His face looks decidedly feminine, eh?

What does being transgender mean? I'll be damned if I can figure it out even after reading the explanation, but whatever. To each his or her own. TRANSGENDER.

It's funny - read some of the comments under the video and people are disgusted by a man who acts and looks like a woman. Why? In this case I think it's because they got fooled by Toyota... and while I have no problems with the ad or Stav, people don't like to be made a fool of.

Anyhow, just like with any car, it's what's under the hood that counts. It's a friggin' Corolla/Auris. It's a bottom-of-the-line car which doesn't have a bottom half as nice as Stav. Or me, for that matter. I didn't spend all those years playing soccer and spending 12-15 hours a week at a gym to not have a great hatchback.

Whatever. It's a good shocking ad that will make you wonder just what the hell the ad was actually for. You'll pay attention the second time.

My only problem with the ad is that the shock value is so high that people aren't paying any attention to the car. Then again... it's a Corolla/Auris. Maybe that's a good thing.

I've owned two top-of-the-line Toyota Camry wagons - and once had to rent a Corolla. It was like driving a kid's peddle car in comparison. Not impressed.    

However, should you be curious (not bi-curious, though that's okay, too), check out Stav's website HERE.
