AUTOMOTIVE 05: Toyota - School

An ingenious and daring concept which sparked strong reactions from viewers, who filed over 100 complaints to the ITC, rendering it one of the most controversial commercials of the year. The convincing starlet won the Best Actress category at this year's London International Advertising Awards for her role as the little madam who utters the infamous words "shut up and drive" to a poor, innocent school-run mum, driving Toyota's latest model.
