Toyota’s new ad campaign is a boy-meets-girl story that kicks off over a disagreement over a car park before fast forwarding to life’s big occasions.

The ‘For A Lifetime of Good Times’ campaign, created by Dentsu Australia, is a look at a couple’s life, from their chance meeting to the birth of their first child, through the lens of Corolla ownership.

The 90-second spot, which was produced by Heckler and directed by Justin McMillan, is part of a push that includes online, print, outdoor and television.

“I loved the idea of using familiar music that reminded me of a romcom film trailer,” McMillan said.

“I wanted to bring to the commercial a sense of familiarity to each of the relationship scenes. I wanted it to feel real and not fabricated so casting was crucial. It was fun to work with young actors who were very considerate of their craft.”
