Toyota video special: Supergrass’ Gaz Coombes stars in latest Yaris “Treat it with respect” TV ad

Fancy a look at the new Toyota Yaris UK television advert before anyone else? Although it’s not on air until the New Year, we have the latest ad in full – featuring a famous face from the British music scene, Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes. Click on the video below to see for yourself!


Continuing the ‘Yaris: Treat it with respect” series made famous by that remote control plane crash incident (click here for a reminder), the latest commercial marks the launch of two new top-of-the-range models, the Yaris SR and Yaris T Spirit. Click here for details about the cars, including special launch pricing details.

Fittingly for the Yaris range, the latest advert features one of Supergrass’ most recognisable songs, Pumping On Your Stereo, which was released in the same year that the original Yaris went on sale in the UK: 1999.

For behind-the-scenes images of Gaz Coombes taken during filming, and a further look at the 2011 Yaris SR, head to our 2011 Yaris Flickr gallery.
