Toni Harris Commercial
Harris stars in Toyota’s Super Bowl commercial advertising its new RAV4 Hybrid.
The commercial starts with a person in a hoodie loading a bag into the trunk of a (Toyota) car on a running track. “They’ve said a lot of things about Toni Harris,” a narrator says, as shots of Harris training and growing up roll over the screen.
“They said she was too small. They said she was too slow. Too weak. They said she’d never get to the next level. Never inspire a new generation. Never get a football scholarship. Yeah, people have made a lot of assumptions about Toni,” he says.
“But I’ve never been a big fan of assumptions” Harris cuts in.
“And neither have we,” the narrator says. He introduces a new RAV4 Toyota.
