Has anyone seen this commercial? I think it is hilarious that Toyota is trying to convince people that a Camry is fun to drive

Depends on what a person is used to driving, and what their definition of "fun" is. Compared to most driving appliances, a Camry is a Porsche.

Meh. Its as fun as any other FWD midsize family does sedan that does 0-60 under 6 seconds and can get 30 mpg. At least its a real "ride and drive" setup that gets used by 10s of thousands of participants across the countrt instead of another flashy CGI car commercial.

Although a Camry is highly unlikely to ever be in my family, I think the ad is effective and a good way for Toyota to change the perception of the Camry. I haven't driven a new one, but they claim to have tightened up its ride and handling. The new Avalon has been tested to be far less Buick-like than its predecessors.

I find it funny, too, considering that pretty much any car could be driven over that "track" in a similar manner and feel "fun" to the passengers in it.

That commercial makes me feel embarrassed for Toyota.

I was going to say the exact thing, the course does everything, a Geo Metro would do the same...

Considering many people barely drive their car any where near what it's capable of, I'm sure they'll be surprised at the Camry's "peppiness".

Wish I could give more rep, but I can't. This is a very true statment.
