Toyota x LADbible

Fantasy Road Trip

Toyota partnered with LADbible to revolutionise the opinion of the Yaris amongst 18-34 year-olds.

We created a wanderlust invoking campaign despite current Lockdown rules that forbade any road trips— instead, making a cosmic road trip to provide escapism when the country needed it most.

With the insight that two-thirds of LADbible’s audience were planning to book a holiday when restrictions were lifted, and destination was a deciding factor, we set out to take our audience on their dream road trip when no one could travel.

Working with six of our audience’s favourite celebrities, Gen-Z icon and YouTuber Max Fosh, we created a completely COVID safe road trip and interview series using a giant conveyer belt, a green screen, and the must-have Yaris.

In a time when going anywhere was prohibited, we went everywhere you could imagine

Our solution was to create a world’s first: a moving indoor road trip that can go anywhere you like without ever leaving the room. Thanks to the NG Yaris’ self-charging battery, we could run the car indoors safely for as long as we wanted. We constructed the world’s first car-sized treadmill, perched the NG Yaris on top and encased it in 13ft walls of LCD screens, taking celebrity guests on the world’s most elaborate virtual reality road trip ride.
