Leroy Jenkins Video Becomes Toyota Tacoma Commercial


Our friend who, sadly, we haven't seen in a while, The Silly Girl, gives us the recent Toyota Tacoma commercial fashioned after the famed Leroy Jenkins World of Warcraft video which made the rounds last year. Good stuff. That is if you play the game. We're betting more than a few people who saw this on TV uttered a collective WTF?

This could have been so much better. epic axe and explosive arrows? c'mon. if you are going to try to appeal to a niche like that you gotta really do it. Equip an Axe of the Gronn Lords or somethin 1337 for christs sake. would have taken 18 seconds on google to find something better.

the only thing this ad says is "the people who made this ad dont play warcraft"

Toyota. So you're going to sell trucks with Warcraft...? You DO realize that people that play Warcraft don't typically do anything except play Warcraft right? Maybe they take the truck out and to pick up a few hundred cases of pizza pops? I guess that's feasible, if they could afford the payments on a brand new truck.

"at least i have chicken."

THAT is who you pitch to: a company that sells chicken, not trucks.

This could easily be re-purposed once again for churcs' or kfc or some other revolting chain.

Basically they have no target audience!

- It doesn't make sense to non-World of warcraft players

- World of warcraft player wont like it!
