0

Here is the YouTube video of a curious Toyota ad. You might know that the phrase “autonomation” comes from Toyota and means “automation with a human touch.” The Strategos website has a nice overview of autonomation This ad's theme is “human touch” in a very literal sense.

This website indicates that it was an ad from a Japanese ad agency but a British production company. Not sure where the ad aired, but with the right-hand drive, I assume it wasn't the U.S.
