Toyota Reunites Son With His 'Cowboy' Dad in This Father's Day Ad

Spot for Camry Points Out Americans Spend $7bn Less Than on Mother's Day

Editor's Pick

Mother's Day ads this year were all about interviews in which people sang the praises of their Moms. Now, it's Dad's turn as Toyota asks various people to think about their dads, call them and even say what they last gave them on Father's Day (which either seems to be nothing or socks). It points out that Americans spend seven billion dollars less on Father's Day than on Mother's Day.

To make Father's Day special, the brand also took one son living in California back to see his Dad in Wyoming -- delivering him there in a Toyota Camry.
