Video / The Toyota GT86 ad banned by the advertising regulator

An ad for car marque Toyota has been banned by the advertising regulator because it could encourage viewers to drive dangerously.
 
The Toyota GT86 ad appeared during a third-party video on YouTube and was viewed by 1.3 million people. It was set in an animated world and featured a man who described how he did not feel real and had no feeling until he drove the car.

The GT86 was then shown being chased by a police helicopter, driving at speed through narrow streets before escaping the city and following signs to “the end of the world” by bursting through a glass barrier back into the “real world”.
