A Trio of Toyota NCAA Basketball Commercials: Pure Madness

Spring is an interesting time of year, for sure. Early March, for the past few years, has really brought a lot of excitement to my days thanks to the interactive portion of SXSW and, of course, March Madness.

One of the more enjoyable spring advertising campaigns to watch, for me, has been the Men’s NCAA Basketball infused Toyota commercials. If you haven’t seen the videos I’ve provided the trio below. They aren’t really anything beyond a typical big-budget, humor-tapped offering, but the use of March Madness and the excellent casting has me putting this campaign into my final four for the season.

Toyota has really dialed into the ‘recruiter’ with their series of Coach T commercials. The marketing and public relations strategy is a bright one.

Using seasonal topics to further enhance your organization’s message is smart. If you’re marketing online it’s not a bad idea to use seasonality (or a holiday spin) to further enhance your message appeal.

    The coach T commercials are horrible!!!! I have to change the channel every time they come on!!!! I am disgusted with the fact that Toyota is using a coach to ‘influence’ young buyers. Toyota must be a Sandusy fan and advocate child abuse.
