Toyota's latest GT86 commercial depicts a man trapped inside a fake CGI city who waxes monotone about the pitiful life that he only just manages to suffer. As if the scenes were ripped from your favorite existential sci-fi movie (see The Matrix, Dark City, and Inception), Toyota's makes one thing clear: you're leading a false and meaningless life, and the only way out is in the driver's seat of a GT86. Who knew freedom from dystopia could be had with no money down and zero percent APR?
