I know I haven't. I've seen quick shots of FJC's in generic Toyota commercials as they scroll every model past. And a local stealership has one on a billboard in the area but it is never identified by name.

Why hasn't Toyota mass marketed the FJC at all I wonder? Nissan Xterras, Hummer H3s and Jeeps all have television commercials showing their offroad prowess but I've yet to see one with an FJC.

Have you?

Apparently Toyota Corporate is more than happy with the sales figures and doesn't feel the need to hype the FJ like they do the Tundra and Camry.....lol....

Speaking of PR though, I love the fact that many of the print ads in 4x4 magazines show the FJ modded up with lift, wheels and tires....

Maybe I just don't pay enough attention to commercials. I usually speed past them with my DVR. I will purposefully start watching a TV show 15 minutes late just so I can do so, but thought I would have noticed an FJ even at high speed.

The only ones I have ever seen were mentioned in thread on this site and ran through YouTube. Never seen one on TV.

I believe Toyota is spending all their FJ advertising dollars on the Trail Teams. Money well spent.

I am not disagreeing with their marketing strategy either, after all it obviously hooked all of us in! :clap: I kinda like it that I drive a vehicle that gets most of its marketing from word of mouth and the curious "Hey, what is THAT? It looks cool!" questions that we've all gotten. I had one earlier this evening and was musing on the revelation that they don't do much television marketing, if any! :bigthumb:

Toyota Trail Teams is a living/walking commercial for the FJ Cruiser. It's kinda like a grass roots effort viral marketing campaign. It works.

My cousin went to a marketing seminar and Toyota themselves explained this strategy.

This is why you don't see FJC commercials.

That's a cool commercial of the FJ, although that is true that the trail teams had been a good way to advertise the the FJ as a trail worthy vehicle, just not a gas friendly vehicle.:bigthumb:

They played one in the Alberta market for a short time. Guy watering his lawn and a neighbor admiring his nice new voodoo blue FJ in his garage. Garage door opens up, (FJ and inside of garage was just a picture on the door...) to see his kid wheeling his skateboard out of an empty garage. Neighbor goes to say something and the man watering the grass takes the garden hose to his neighbors pants. :)

Like everyone else, just a quick shot of an FJ in the Toyota "everything is on sale, get money back" type commercials.

I guess I feel lucky that I didnt see the commercial before I bought a SF..

how could you terrorize those furry little ball things like that.
The commercial would have been better if the FJ ate the furry little things and coughed up fur balls.
