Toyota RAV Killer Wasps

Toyota has launched the RAV V6 in Australia with a humorous TV ad in which a nosy neighbour mistakes the phrase “200 kilowatts” for “200 killer wasps”. Panic ensues, with music from Hitchcock’s Psycho, as the whole street dives for cover. The tagline, “Think Faster”, is accompanied by wasps sounding out the Toyota signature tune.
