    This ad just played on CNBC in my office. I had to laugh. It reminded me of MJ's description of "The Script".

    They left out repeating the process for 50 years.

    Basically... You work hard and for your reward you get the privilege of spending some of your time in a Toyota Avalon with more leather. Yay success.

    They also left out that usually it's a fat balding guy because he's got no blood circulation and a sh*t diet, pulling into a one bedroom house to a wife who's pissed off because she's shackled to the equivalent of Jerry from Rick and Morty.

    Also love how it's an open road. A more accurate portrayal would be hopelessly stuck in traffic going to work... classic "your time"!

    They do. Very reliable as well.

    But they are just Toyotas with more leather and a few extra bells and whistles + that "luxury" price tag.

    The IS model I would definitely agree and it's been proven.

    The higher up models are more different.

    But with that logic, isn't any car basically the same thing with some more dressing up?

    Right. I'd agree that, for example, the LS is a realm above Toyota.

    I wouldn't say that all cars are that way. But if you compare, for the most part, Toyota to Lexus, or Ford to Lincoln, Nissan to Infiniti, VW to Audi, Honda to Acura, etc, you'll see that the latter are just a higher end brand built off the same chassis. Same powetrain. Same drivetrain. The only difference is in the bells and whistles.

    They can't be compared to high end cars built on standalone chassis' with proprietary features/options.

    Even the "prestigious" Escalade is built on the same platform as the Tahoe and Yukon SUVs, and Silverado and Sierra pickup trucks.

    After living in DC for a decade, the first thing that caught me wasn't the overall scripted nature, but the lack of soul-crushing traffic on the way into that city. Haha.

    The show Atlanta did a pretty good parody of these car commercials:



    Watch it until the end.

    The Lexus commercial above could easily serve as a prequel to this.

    They should show that advert to kids in school then hand them a copy of Unscripted and watch them go and knock life out of the park.
