Toyota Landcruiser Born Of The Earth

Toyota in Australia is presenting the new 4WD Landcruiser 200 as the vehicle born of this Earth in a poetry and scenery rich TV ad. See if you can spot Toyota’s iconic jumping figure at the end of the ad – in the dust.

Toyota Landcruiser Born of the Earth

From the crumpled land,
Life thieving sand,
of grit, and gravel gorge,
the razored rock,
bone dry blocks
of heat and bastard dust,
through the flood ravaged soak,
strangling smoke,
of drought on end on end,
beneath the murderous gaze,
this ancient stage,
life is born again.
