Tracing the final scene of a story back to its roots is a technique we've seen in spots before, and, in the hands of the right brand and talent, it can be a super successful formula. Toyota Europe pulls such a move, bringing in fresh stylistic touches, in this new spot out of Saatchi & Saatchi, Milan that helps to make a station wagon, the Toyota Auris Hybrid, look pretty damn cool. Directed by Steve Ayson, the ad opens on a man who finds himself in the remarkable position of witnessing a whale performing a majestic leap out of the water. But not before he bumps into a gorilla on horseback, a breakdancing yogi and other unusual characters. How did he get there? You'll just have to watch and see.
